My first Far Cry video captured in 16:10 widescreen. I wanted to finally get the chance to do a Far Cry video in widescreen without stretching the picture so VirtualDub and Xvid were used to edit and compress. The gameplay is a combination of careful stealth tactics and aggressive close combat assault. I couldn't resist making full use of the weaponry that is abruptly taken away at the end of this level. There is only game music in the background due to the limitations of VirtualDub. This is a no scratch run, mode is Realistic, level time minus the cutscenes roughly 11:45. Cutscenes were trimmed to keep file size down and the action flowing, thus there is only about :30 worth of cutscenes vs 2:00 for a total length of 12:15. [color=red]NOTE: Viewing this video will require the Xvid codec, which is now recognized by Microsoft as a Windows Media Player plug-in.

This is a great video! Good job.:cool:
Thanks, I was a bit worried some wouldn't like the file size or need to have Xvid, but I find most avid video watchers are fairly receptive to such things.

In the age of broadband, filesize isnt that big of a problem

Thanks, and true, many do have high speed connections to download bigger files but our friends overseas often pay a premium for it, so many opt for 256k. I just tried watching this zoomed to 200% in Media Player which pretty much fills my 21" CRT monitor. The image quality was still very good. I might have used a smaller bit rate were it not for the area where there's steam heat haze causing lots of blur.
