[quote]The Death of Shugart, a BF1942 Movie, produced by Battle for Europe bf1942.battleforeurope.com
Video: Divx 3.11a Audio: Variable Bit Rate MP3 Size: 25.5 MB
If you haven't already, install either the official DivX codec (www.divx.com) or a filter like the excellent FFDShow, avaiable here: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=53761 (Info on ffdshow: http://cutka.szm.sk/ffdshow/about.html)
The script was written by Rommel and Astro, and planned by Rommel, while I (Spacecase) filmed and edited it. It was intended as a post-campaign present to the Allies of BFE. For this reason nametags are visible (although hardly readable :)) in the video; specific Allied officers are being impersonated by some Axis players.
How It Was Made:
It was videotaped using SVHS video-out from a Radeon 64 MB DDR ViVo into a Canon Elura 40MC mini-DV camcorder, and edited with Adobe Premiere. I fixed up the video with Avisynth and encoded it with Nandub. I encoded the audio with BeSweet. Lots of great info on using these last two tools can be found at www.doom9.org. For those who might be interested, here is the Avisynth script. I think it does a nice job of getting rid of the awful interlacing lines:
telecide(gthresh=50,chroma=true,threshold=45) FieldDeinterlace() crop(44,24,632,416) BilinearResize(512,384) Convolution3d(0, 3, 4, 3, 4, 2.8, 0)
I hope you enjoy this humble attempt at a dramatic BF1942 video. :)
