Well, not a movie, but a compilation of frags I've made. No bots, no public. All frags were made in training matches. There's few things I'd like to know about: how to add cool effects + how to get it high-res/quality? I recorded a demo, then I used Fraps to cut out the frags. I edited it in Windows Movie Maker. -__-' Well, it's my first. Give me some advices.

    Startmovie

    This is not exclusive to the source engine,
    however, it offers several features that other games do not. Examples
    are: Sound recorded along with video, (in half life based games sound
    had to be recorded separately or not at all), and the ability to record
    straight to video, rather than recording to separate image frames, and
    having to piece them together.

    Startmovie should be used when the game is ‘run in
    a window’ at the resolution you plan to capture at (bigger resolution =
    bigger filesize). In the options > sound tab, speaker configuration
    should be set to 2.1, otherwise your audio files will appear blank.

    Framerate (host_framerate xx) is a choice thing,
    personally I tend to use a very high framerate, as it makes slowing
    down clips look very nice, and creates a nice motion blur effect at
    normal speed. However, the more frames you have, the bigger the
    filesize will be, recording at 60 fps rather than 30 fps will give you
    roughly double the filesize. Personally I either record at 60, or 120
    fps, depending on what I think I will do with the clip, its important
    to record at multiples of what your final project fps will be at, so if
    your final project fps is 25, you would record at 25, 50, 75, 100 and
    so on.


    Google is your friend.

    And sorry... I'm not going to watch it with that horid framerate.

    If you want to edit your frag movies well, use Sony Vegas 7. It costs, but it's worth it. Also I disliked the music, it was the same stuff all the time. Quite nice, although you might want to use clips with more than one or two frags. Oh, and don't use Fraps. Use the built-in Source Recorder.

    Thanks for that Zippit, I had no idea about the host_framerate thing.. been using 30 all along. x_x

    Ok, this was a bad frag video for a couple reasons. First is you have that little shitty box in the bottom left hand corner. Second, the people you were playing were shitty. They were so shitty that I wanted to uninstall CSS for them, break the CSS disks, hen gauge my eyes out with them. Next time, play people that are good.

    Also, don't bump your own shitty frag video.

    It was ok, like every good kill you had it would just end and go to another clip, each clip was like maybe 1-3 kills..they were good kills, but most of em werent worthy of being added to a montage..imo..u need longer clips, not just one kill clips then on to a completely different clip, thats kinda boring..

    I see no lag in this at all.


    I agree. I have no idea what most of you are moaning about.

    I have never made my own frag video, but I intend to. I hear FRAPS is the better choice over the demo in the console, but if that is the command module in the bottom right for it I think I'll skip unless it can be removed and preferably hot key'd.

    If you want to make a good frag movie with effects, high quality, then you should use Sony Vegas.

    You can look here for tutorials.

    To record everything with Fraps or VirtualDub, you should have enough free space on your hard drive.

    Wait, you recorded a demo and then recorded the demo with fraps?

    Also after effects is a good program.
