Movie Contest (?)
User avatar
MuscleCarFreak created Movie Contest (?) on Fri Apr 16, 2004 7:52 am
Post
Lately, after i finally get to know how to record movies in Carma2 and uploaded some on my site, i had the idea of making a little movie contest, wouldn't that be something?

I'd volunteer to host it and also make a entry.

But before i have to know if there would be enough others to make movies and take part in the contest aswell.

I know there are lots of chaps out there who know how to record and already released good vids, and if newbies wanna join aswell we can open a thread in the help forum with tutorials or hints how to make movies.

So for now i just need some "I'd take part" replies, i would say at least 5.

Carma2 and TDR movies are allowed, but i post the particular rules as soon as i know that there are enough entries to let that contest begin.

So all those little Spielbergs out there, let me hear from u ! :investigate:

Why not just use fraps, set your record on/off to shift/F1 that way you click play, hold shit, which hides the player buttons and cursor and hit F1, while holding shift, then just hit F1 again when done, then you dont have the oogly playa buttons mussin it all up.

I dunno if holding shit is the right way to capture a movie :rofl:

You can press "/" (numpad) to start recording and keypad 5 to play. So you can hold shift to hide the controls wich you don't need.

it would appear you dont read very well.

If you are in C2's replay hit shift, notice how the buttons/cursor go away when you hold it?

Im explaining how to record with Fraps, not the crap ass quicktime that comes with it. Wanker.

Jabman, if you record with Fraps too, check if you find the 'RemoteRemove'-download on my site useful for you.

I'm in! I already have loads o' vids ready to go but nowhere to host them? Who the hell is gonna volunteer for that then!?
User avatar
MuscleCarFreak on Sun Apr 18, 2004 5:46 am
Post
Ok let's explain some more things...

I'd thought of kinda movie like i did lately, just a summary of many stunts, crashes, explosions and whatever u like to, it should just have style and be creative.

To give a example of what i mean: It's boring if a car jumps 10 feet, but it's not boring if it jumps over an opponent or cuts a peds head off while jumping.

A story would be something innovative, but -as u said- i got no idea how that should or could be done :crazy:

To Powdered Toast: I'd volunteer to host a vid if it's the entry for the contest and it's not too big.

Speaking of size: I thought of a general limitation of 3 mins and 10 megs. The resolution should be 320x200 at least, but 640x480 is prefered.

The way u record and compress it doesn't matter, as long as it's not a kind of format no normal person uses :wink: .

And to the contest itsself: Yeah, finding judges may be a problem, so i thought rather of opening a thread after the entry deadline and post all links to the movies together with a vote there. With that we could also make some 2. and 3. places by looking at the percentages of every "candidate".

So the guys that'd agree to make a vid yet are:

TomeX*

FB

Powdered_Toast_MAAAN

*if he gets it to work, but i think he'll succeed with the help of the others here

And what's with the other guys posting here like JabMan and autopilot ... u guys are good in making movies, wouldn't u take part???

(And don't let this contest die this time :wink: )

I have the same problem as Powdered toast , got a very cool movie but no website... :sad:

I compressed it with winrar from 10 mb to 3.26 mb.

Powdered Toast, Oblivion and everyone else who has that problem, I'll host them, but only as soon as they are definitly the movies that are thought as the entries for the contest, so u can wait some time and then u can send em per mail or a messenger program. I'll put em on my site server and post the direct links.

So with Oblivion there are 4 then, where's the rest? :investigate:

You can count me in as well, MCF. I got tons of replay vids lying around - 'bout time I put 'em to good use!

Alrighty then, I appreciate your joining CarmaHolik, and now we're 5!

Ok, with that, I know post the exact rules:

-The video mustn't be a certain format or compression

-It may not be any bigger than 10mb or last longer than 3 minutes

-It may contain sound/music

-The resolution shouldn't be less than 320x200

-The content: Stunts, crashes and tricky stuff is prefered, gore is also allowed but it shouldn't be the main thing (try to find a good mixture of everything)

-The use of Power-ups and other "tricks" is allowed, just be creative!

-The movies shall be uploaded and free for everyone to download at the end of May

(as said before, those who don't have a server can send it to me)

(if anyone thinks he needs more time he should contact me before)

-After all the entries are ready, I'm going to post a new thread where every CWA member can download the vids and vote for their favorite

-Two weeks later the current stats will count and I'll gotta give the "Golden Eagle"-award to the winner

I'm trying to shrink my movies down now... I think my entry is about 2:50 long. I can't be arsed to make a new one... well, I may yet, but for now I will be submitting "Adrenaline".

[Damn... the smallest I can make it is 13.5mb, that's with windoze medai 9 encoder. Don't even ask about the size divX gave me!!]

oh no... the song i wanted to use is 4:06....but, i can make the video in a pertty good format(320x240) at a price of 5-7mbs. i guess i could chop the end of it off, but to sound right, it would have to be 3:17 long. that acceptable?

Ok guys, it's not that I'm such a strict person...

... the limitations have just been exteneded to 15mb and (about) 4 mins :cool:

(but those who want to let it be hosted on my site should still keep it much lower than that, please!)

And Forsaken, ever think of restarting the computer? :wink:

heh. yup, i done that. see, i had WMM1, and it worked fine. then i downloaded and installed WMM2, and now i get that damn "Unspecified error"

Forsaken Prolly: i dunno what WMM is, so it's hard to give a solution for that... but, only theoretically, what would be the problem of just installing the previous version again?

Matt Demers: Do you have a server/site where you can upload it? If that's the case, you may just give the link to it. If you don't find any place to upload it, you can send it to me like Oblivion did and i host it on my site. But it really shouldn't be much more than 5mb cause i don't want to overheat my uncle's server...

Quite a good clip Oblivion! I noticed you happened to land on a couple of cars after some jumps.. as long ive been playing this game such a thing has never happened to me yet?!

Im half-assed working on mine, just recording new stuff as I play, didnt have anything saved before-hand.. quite a lot to go. My clip will likely just be some realistic styled wrecks, I dont go all awol with the 500mph spaceship crashes! :help:

Where do I get this radtools for stitching them together and such?

Funny!

Great choice of music, although maybe a wee bit obvious, but still. My shirt proves it: Can't beat a bit of AC/DC.

Where can I find tutorials on how to make a movie like that? Coz all I get is that 640x480 pixelmonsters on acid when I record some crap. Or if someone might point in the driection of another thread I seem to recall about making good movies.

I'm getting all kinds of ideas!

Here, i found a link where it's explained how to do it and there's also the link to the RAD game tools site: MOV to AVI

(but i prefer divX to the compression he chose in that tutorial)

Plus, what's not mentioned there, if you name all the movie files in constant increasing numbers, e.g. "movie000.mov","movie001.mov","movie002.mov" etc. etc... then you just have to choose the first movie and click "convert a file", and it'll ask if it should treat the sequenzes as one file.

And if you record the movies with Carma2, don't forget to change the line "quicktime banner 1" in the options.txt to "0" at the end.

Forsaken Brolly: Er... *is confused* I'm ... er ... sorry, Forsaken Lolly, or what was your name again? :wink:
