How to make css videos in game.

Hey I have a download of Fraps. I was wondering how I make a CSS Video In Game. When I use fraps, My CSS Is really laggy. I Know there is ways through the console but I dont know the commands, I need to use. When I go to the tuts section and read, I find the tuts for make the videos hard to understand. What I want to Know? I want to know what to put in console to start the video and then stop. I then want to know how to open it in fraps and then How to edit the video. Hope You can help, Really feel like making a pwnage video and posting it on My Profile :) Thanks, Inferno.

    The demo file can then be played back inside the game engine (by typing: playdemo DEMONAME) and recorded with a programs such as fraps, or through annoyingly long conversion made to an .AVI.

    That video can then be edited in a video editing program. You should have Windows Movie Maker, which isn't the best possible one, but it's a start.

    Ok so what your saying is..

    1.) type "record demoownage" in console to start.
    2.) once finished recording type "stop" to stop video.
    3.) To play back in game, type "playdemo ownage"
    4.) then open it in fraps (how do i do this?)
    5.) once done in fraps and converted, open in windows movie maker.

    So say it saves in my css folder, i go to fraps and then what do i click to open it and play it in fraps and then be able to save it as an .AVI?

    Thanks, please need the help.

    Sorry for trying to help. That tut has links to free videoediting software just so you know. You will need video editing software. Fraps makes files incredibly large, hundreds of megabytes.

    You use the Source game engine (CS:S) to view it. While viewing, you can record an AVI file of what's going on on the screen with fraps. I believe the default button for recording it F9. Hit once to start recording, again to stop. The recorded files (found in the fraps directory) can be opened in a video editing program.

    You can also try converting the demo files, but when I've tried to convert to a video format, it has given me a really hard time, and converting to separate frames and a .wav file that you would then combine, and only then open in a video editing program is really a drag.

    Get a program called "IrFanview" from http://www.download.com (use search box at the top) to view movies recorded by fraps, and you can also look for a video converter on there, search for "wmv to avi" because when you edit the movie in windows movie maker and save it, it saves to wmv.

    What?? Basically all modern media players can play the files fraps has recorded (raw AVI)... And WMV is just fine for finished videos, although I'm not fond of WMM's exporting functions.

    Great frigging tutorial, Lost. Gotta go through that when I'm a bit more awake.
