Default Making Movies in EQ


Hello all. I want to throw this question out there and hopefully get a response. I want to know how is it possible to make a quicktime movie within EQ. I've seen a couple of them out there but I am curious as to what I would need to do to make one. I just finished a class in Adobe After Effects and I want to bring in a movie of Eq in the background as part of the project. I have a few ideas running around in my head and if I can pull this off I'd be one happy camper.

Peace,
Dray

Default You could try this...


The easiest way would be to have a video card that has S-video out and record to a VCR. Then capture the files back into your computer and away you go.

Otherwise, you would need software to do a live capture of your screen. I don't know of any that could do that but you might check out www.techsmith.com. I know they have some screen grab utils and they might have something that would encode your frames as rendered from your vid card to a .avi or .mov file.

Obviously you can't capture with AE but you should be able to get something captured in another program and then just import it into AE.

PS. AfterEffects Rocks! =)

Heh, i'm sure my Guildmates knew I couldnt resist getting in on this thread..

Personally, I use a Xtasy Nvidia 64mb card with svideo-out, running to my 2nd computer with a Dazzler capture device.. so, all i have to do is click "record" whenever I want to take a vid-clip for my collection. Then I use Adobe Premiere 6, Goldwave (audio) and Photoshop to make the finished product..

I particularly like this one.. and I'm currently working on another with more of a Story to it..

Great work Jethal. What I am thinking of doing is filming my brother against a solid back ground then importing him into an everquest backdrop using Adobe After Effects. I have a few ideas on what the movie is going to be like but was having that problem with the video capture from EQ. Anyways I have a Mac sitting right next to my PC. I understand they are different operating systems but I wonder if I could do something similar to what you are doing. I am currently using an Nvidia Geforce4 MX440 with 64 megs. Not too sure if it has a video out but will check when I get home. Anyways, thanks for the great idea and keep up the excellent work!
