12-20-2001, 07:37 PM
Ive been working on it for about 45 minutes... mostly collecting video... 5 minutes of video and all I get is 22 seconds of good **** :D
But I need to know if I can get some server space also because I have alot of **** running off of mine and I will surely run out of bandwidth if I upload the finished version to mine :(
Anyways... here it is..
It's using the panasonic mpeg-1 codec... its very common.
Enjoy.. and let me know what you think so far
BTW the music is by an artist called "indikator" and his music can be found at http://mp3.com/Indikator
the song is called Critical Mass

Wow, that's a pretty good teaser...looks like Phanataz has some competition...

Great video quality-- how'd you record it?
Nice job a editing your video sequences with the time in the music. That first transition in the music where you cut to the interior shot with the skull relic is spot on and really r0x0rs.
You mentioned 2 seconds of good footage drawn from 5 minutes. Do you know the general rule of thumb editing audio or video? For every produced 1 minute you gather about 1 hour of tape. Don't have to of course, but in my work I've found this to be close quite often. All that matters is that you have a great finished product.

hehe... well.. since my vcr isnt the best quality I decided to loop my s-video out to the s-video in on my "tv" card ;)

Ya, guess Phan does have some competition

GREAT!!! damn i can't wait til it's finished..

Nicely done..Just put me in there and I'd give it an A+.

WOW! I am speechless. Thats a good idea with the S-Video loop. I think I tried that..but on my Voodoo 3500, something happened and it didnt work well so i was forced to use my VCR. Maybe i will have to try that again because I really liked the quality of the video. It's very crisp! And you got me hooked with the music. I love that stuff!
It's so cool that the creative talent on this server is showing!
VERY NICE.. .and that was just a teaser!
Let me add, that I think Stealth is going to have to open up some more server space and a new section called "UT Videos". I predict many more videos coming from all of you guys!

Very Nice! Brutal Incinerator shots. you captured some great rocket blasts. hehe. I also, like in Phanataz's where the cow just rounds the corner and it's hamburger's for everyone. lol

does anyone know the format of .dem files
is their some sort of conversion tool i got a good gig of dem files from demo manager 2
some really nice **** in the ones I keep
got all the people showing off :D
12-21-2001, 12:13 AM
well... I never used a .dem file before but Im sure its no "video" per say.. its more like points, vectors, and data... so basically you arent watching a "movie" the computer is controlling every aspect of the game according to the .dem file and it just looks like its a "movie" :D
then again I have yet to use this "demo manager" but Im sure that Im right ;)
where can I get it though, the demo manager??

you can't convert .dem into a movie, because a .dem is just a set up instructions that tells UT what frame to render next. Since you can change player views it's not a typical movie.
You have to send the video out (if your video card is capable) and send it back in again and use a program (an avi capture app of sorts) to record the video coming back in.
djfony managed to pull off looping the s-video on his tv card. He had a single video cable plugged into the video in & out port. Which is really cool since you don't lose any quality in say, sending it to your VCR and sending it back in to your computer. Thats what I had to do.. I couldnt do what djfony did on my computer for some reason.
Now there is a program out there that works with UT to capture frame by frame of a demo file as youre playing it. it's almost as if someone was hitting F9 a bunch of times. As a result, you have tons of .BMP screen capture shots in your UT/System folder. Then, you use a program to convert the .BMP's into an .AVI. Problem with this method is that it took a REALLY REALLY REALLY long time to play a demo. Although when I did convert the .BMP's into a short .AVI file, it looked really clear..but just wasn't worth it IMO.
You guys are going to put out some awesome vids, i just know it! :D
Its good to have competition. I am really looking forward for the finishing clip.....:cool: :D
