post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Ok so i have a Nvidia 7900 GT (didnt really know what other section to put this in) and i need to record my counter strike: source footage for an upcoming movie im making. I tryed FRAPS and it doesnt make CS lag like it does FEAR or anything its just that for like 15 secs of vid (even with no sound) its like 150mb!
How can i compress these files/ and or is there a better program out there?
And please make sure its compatible with my video card, thanks alot

I use windows Movie Maker. It's free and has lots of presets. I recently did a 101 MB movie that went to 1.44mb at 640 x 480 resolution. Of course, you don't need it that small, but my point is, the compression is great.

If you are more "pro", you can use Adobe Premire Pro, but its not really needed

Good luck. I found WMV format is good.

Thanks alot i planned on putting it together with WMMaker and didnt know if compressed the files, do you just load up the file and it does it automatically for you?

Btw, REP+!

You put the movie together with the sudio and video files. Once it is "complied", you go to export movie, adn you can set what reolution and size you want the final file to be. It automatically compresses it after that.

Thanx for the rep.

If you want to get some seriously nice compression with great quality and tons of options the only way to go is virtual dub + divx. You can turn that 150mb video into a 1mb video and have the quality be exactly the same.

eh I have a 7900gt. But I use a program called Camtasia. It records anything on your screen and stores it as a format that camtasia recognizes till you export it. Then you can choose something like quicktime. For your movie if your interested in the best quality make sure there is no compression on you clip/vid till you are done editing it in what ever software you have (like premiere pro/After effects). So I repeat if you make you video a quicktime, windows media or whatever do not compress it. Yes the file size will be large but that’s what WinRAR is for. Then when your ready to edit you use those uncompressed vids and once your done you compress your final edited video.

If you compress you capture from Fraps or camtasia Ex. and then edit it your going to have to compress it again. Each time you compress it the video gets darker and looses contrast and sometimes picks up a hue of some kind. Anyways you may or may not have though or cared about that but I just wanted to save you the trouble or having to redo it..

If you really really need Camtasia or WinRAR that can be arranged, lol..
