MY USER PAGE Been doing it for a while, just a solo thing But I capture footage off games console..eg Xbox/Xbox 360 etc.. of various games, mainly of the gameplay as I am playing and sometimes the FMV so gamers get a feel of what the game is like. I mostly try to capture the main action scenes..., I capture in High Quality at full resolution at a very high bitrate so the capture will look exactly like the game if you were to play it, downside is sometimes the files are quite large.. 100MB-300MB, but it's all worth it when you see the finshed product, I just hate them low res/bitrate footage you see on gaming sites, so I like to think I offer something one step above there's.. Have a look at some of the footage I have captured below, just a sample of what I can do, have a back catalogue of old games I want to capture from the Xbox in the future... Ninja Gaiden -XBOX- FMV Intro 80MB Kung Fu Chaos -XBOX- Gameplay 240MB Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 -XBOX 360- FMV Intro 150MB Lost Planet -XBOX360- Gameplay 70MB Sonic -XBOX360- Gameplay 150MB Tony Hawks Project 8 -XBOX360- Gameplay 25MB Technical Stuff --------------- At the moment capture at Standard Definition using a component capture card then encode to WMV, since this is a solo thing it comes out of my own pocket and the equipment to capture in High Definition is quite costly.. Footage is grabbed off as RAW Uncompressed Video, around 1GB a minute, the files generated are quite large, but I encode them to WMV which reduces the file size significantly but retains the quality, when encoding to WMV the video has to be deinterlaced, clipped, cropped, resized, if the Game supports Widescreen then I capture it in Widescreen, also note I keep the original aspect ratio and encode with 1:1 pixel aspect ratio, so the video is displayed correctly when played back... Reason for using WMV is because it produces good quality videos with reduced file sizes, also it is easy to encode to and the program I use to encode allows fine tuning of the video. The Main reason is that it is the best format to distribute the video over the internet as just about anyone can play back the video, as you don't need to install any special software/player/codec, so anyone using windows can play it back, also can put in on CD/USB stick and play it back on an Xbox 360 console.. Been Expermenting with H264 for a bit, it's great for producing low resolution video for playback on PSP/IPOD... but I'm sticking with WMV for now... H264 SAMPLE -PLAYABLE on IPOD Video/Touch

Thanks, so Many Mods, check the Lost Planet vid, only 60MB and 1 minutes long, but shows you the quality of the footage, and if your a guy you can't turn down the Dead or ALive clip, it's 150MB but i'm sure you won't be complaining about the size after you have watched it...

Nice....
