i have a serious fundamental problem with a machinima i have planned. i want to make a series/movie in fable, but you can only have one hero on screen at once. does anyone know how, if at all you could get more than one hero on screen at once. camera tricks or editing, or would it require a total rewrite of the game code?
save it as a WMV, then use putfile.com, savefile.com, xthost.info, filehost.com, to host it, i know there are others. What you do is you make an account if neccissary, click browse, find your file, then hit upload. It'll give you a link with your video on the web.
i have a question that i think is related. i have 4 RvB scripts made by me in my journals, and i wanna know if theyre RvB/machinima worthy, cuz i might make my own machinima. i just want some criticism, and where im askin im not gettin any. can you help me out and tell me what you think?
Alright, I'm going out on a limb with this one. I'm having a weird problem with Adobe Premiere 6.5 that no one has probably ever experienced but I'm posting in anyway in the rare chance that someone has heard of this problem and knows of an easy fix. So here goes.
I want to test out the different codecs for Quicktime files. So I open up the program, use the profile I've always used, import a certain video, and place it on the timeline. I go to Export Timeline -> Movie... I forget which codec I chose, but after I did so, before the little "Exporting" dialog box appeared (with the progress bar), the program freezes for a moment, then the Microsoft "Send Error Report" dialog box appears. I click "Don't Send" and the program closes. Now, I can open the program and everything, but now it freezes right after I click "Export Timeline -> Movie". I'm guessing it's having trouble loading the pre-selected codec, but I can't figure out how to change it without getting into the dialog box. I've tried reinstalling it, but that didn't seem to work, so I'm guessing there were some leftover files somewhere with this setting. Would it help if I completely uninstalled it (like deleted ALL folders in Program Files and Documents and Settings) and tried a fresh install, or does someone know of an easier fix to this dilemma?
I recently bought Pinnacle Studio 10. I installed it and when I put a clip on the timeline I can't see it in the player (its the preview screen in the top right) I don't know if you have to set something to see it, I would think it does it automatically. Thanks.
TMRiddle here has had some bad experince with Pinnacle.
From what he's said, use Pinnacle if you're going to use the Dazzle capture card. The recommendation is Adobe Premire ELEMENTS 2.0. It's only 100% and you can do some of the things that RvB does for their videos like video in video, or video layers with one faded for a ghost Church sorta thing. (From what I understand from Riddle, if he lied, eat his babies).
Me and my buddy are trying to make a movie using halo , but we dont know jack about wha tprograms or how you do it. Is thier any good website that teals you, or some good software. We are really interrested, ubt we seem to have a head up our ass cause we cant see anything aobut it
Okay, never mind about my Adobe Premiere 6.5 problem, all I had to do was uninstall it and delete the settings files in "Documents and Settings" and stuff...BUT anyway...
I've got a new one for ya to mull over. When capturing video to a computer with a standard RCA cable, a weird pixelation/box-splitting thing occurs between bright colors in the picture. I believe this is due to the fact that it's an RCA cable, since this does not appear in the RT videos. I'm guessing they use S-Video. Now since this is all speculation, I'm basically asking if it's true. Is the bright-color-pixelation, as exampled in the picture below, caused by the low quality of the composite video cable and fixable by switching to an S-Video cable? Or is it caused by the fact that it's a USB capture device and fixable by using another method of capture, but still with the RCA cable?
I'm making a machinima movie and I want to enter it in my school Technical Festival, but I have a big question. If im using the following games (Halo 2, Star Wars: Battlefront 2, and Timesplitters 2) and I mention the companies (Bungie, Lucusarts, and Eidos) in the credits, and their is no finincial gain, then do I need permission to use the games?
You never need permission from a game company to use their game in a machinima as long as you don't make any money off of it. And I would suggest using .Free Radical for TimeSplitters 2, cause I think they did more than Eidos.
Go to download.com and on the main site go to the Audio/Video section then go to the Rippers and Encoders section. I downloaded a free trial of the Xili... Audio Converter, but you can probably find a good, free audio ripper there.
I may have missed this before (I'm such a n00b) but is there any machinima software that works for Mac OS X 10.3. not the script editor or sound editor or anything. or does the whole camera thing record the game?
if you want just the audio from a video file all you need to do is import it into Windows Movie Maker and then drag and drop it into the "Audio" line of the Story board (I'm sure that everyone who is trying to make movies, has goofed around in WMM and see what is what before they got too commited), make sure that there is nuthing in the Video section of it then when you're does that go to "save to my computer" (don't worrry it will say save VIDEO as, but the program will actually save it as just an audio file (.wma I belive)) when you're done that jsut go to import audio and than find you're file and presto you have you're old video file as a plain audio file (this is the same way I turned all the rvb episodes into audio files so i could put them on my iPud) ya i know I'm just that cool to do something that nuts.
