Hi, I'd like to know what I need to make a JKA movie.. I know how to record demos and stuff but I dont know how to take off the HUD or convert into AVI...
1. Wrong forum 2. Use search 3. Use search again
P.S. cg_draw2d 0 Use search!!!!!
cg_draw2d 0 works when you record, but when you playback the HUD is still there
so type cg_draw2d 0 before you playback...
can any1 post a tutorial on makin movies in jedi academy cus i was thinkin bout makin a clan movie to get us reconized more plus it just seems cool =)
JKA FILMING TUTORIAL =)
Firstly you need a program called FRAPS. It records ingame footage. You can get the free trial at www.fraps.com. They have some good free stuff but you wont be able to record sound.
Then when ur ready to film, start JKA up and press the windows button (im assuming u have a pc) between the ctrl and alt keys. Go through the start menu and click on fraps. You should see numbers on one of the corners of the screen which is ur fps. When ur ready to record press f9.
NOTE: Before you record i strongly reccomend that u type /cg_Draw2d 0 to get rid of hud (u can get it back by typing /cg_draw2d 1) and also /cl_noprint 1 which gets rid of all text on the screen (cl_noprint 0 to get it back). The only downside to the no print command is that you wont be able to see wut ur actors are saying. Therefore, only put in the command when everyone is completely ready.
The fraps movie files will be saved into the C:/Fraps folder. Just to warn you, they are HUGE files!! Then all u gotta do is throw um into a movie maker, do ur stuff, and save it as a movie (dont worry, the actually movie file size will be much much less than the fraps files). =)
If you are gonna use movie maker i suggest downloading some updates from www.mircosoft.com.
Have fun, and lets see some good movies!! =)
No, no no! This way is easier and faster. You won't need Fraps! Here is the right way:
Abu5e1) Demo it (\g_synchronousclients 1;\record [demo name]). 2) Set the number of fps you want to record at (\cl_avidemo ). 3) Then replay the demo (\demo [demo name]). 4) This will create a shed load of screenshots in the \screenshots dir. 6) Import the screenshots into M$ Movie Maker (or some other video editing tool). 7) add whatever transition effects/music etc you want. 8) save it using divx or xvid codec.
First, I don't like the idea of having to compile together a whole bunch of screenies, so I'm going to go with Fraps.
Second, while using Fraps, if it DOESN'T record sound, how do I get the proper sounds in?
You have to put them in yourself... unless you BUY fraps... then you can record sound. There was a special FRAPS at www.fraps.com but... im not sure but it costs money, and records sound.
the free one records only at 640x480, which sucks a lil bit. Mercenary suggested this one. Never tested, but looks good, and better than fraps (it's free too).
