What program is the best program to make videos in? I want an easy (Not Windows movie maker) Free program and I would also like to know a good recording (free) program that can film about 1-2 minutes. And I also got a question about a song =) I dont know the name but it goes like this or something... Let the bodies hit the floor, Let the bodies hit the floor,Let the bodies hit the floor, Let the bodies hit the floor And then it starts.. Its like a rock song... Plz tell me what that song is called!

    Fraps to record, windows movie maker to edit. Simple, cheapest way. No idea what the song is and to be honest I really don't care.

    WMM is actually pretty good if you've downloaded add-ons and know how to use it.

    Editing software in order of "professional" quality (and price):
    Final Cut Pro
    Adobe Premiere Pro
    Video Vegas
    Ulead VideoStudio
    Pinnacle Studio 10
    (There most likely are others that could fit somewhere there, but these are the ones I know something about)

    All ALOT better than WMM, but the top 3 also are no really affordable if you're not serious about video editing or you happen to be rich.

    Oh, and PLEASE! Do not use Let the Bodies hit the floor... I'm begging you... I've seen it being used 20 million times already in montages that were absolutely horrible.

    Wasn't there supposed to be a way to convert demos to AVI or Divx, directly from the engine with a few console commands? I actually remember messing around with it myself (with pretty bad results)... They must have scratched it...
    *EDIT*
    Nevermind, it was there in one of the tutorials.

    Yeah, but you cant upload the .dem files it creates.

    EDIT: there's this tutorial. no HTML in it, but it's alright.

    EDIT: and another one. I didn't read this one though.

    he isn't saying use the record demo thing.. To record a demo file you type in "record blah" but you can type startmovie and then the name and you can record an actual movie. but to get the best results you should record a demo file, turn off all the HUD and GUIs and then type "Play demfilename" and then type "startmovie w/e" so that you dont see the hud and such. there is a tutorial HERE

    Why the fuck did you quote my post? You just told him exactly what the two tutorials said but in less depth and you obviously didn't read the bit about making it an .avi movie. Eh? Read the first tutorial i posted fully and you'll see what i mean.

    Also when playing back your recorded demo hit SHIFT + F1 (2?) - I can't remember which but it will bring up a remote
