The context I meant for it was along the lines that as a man we just do stuff that comes across the wrong way but we are clueless as to what we did.
It's ok, I knew that's what you meant
As I said, it's only the 3rd video I made.. I did the one of my place, then Bazz's place and then this.
I'm using play claw. I couldn't find anything free that worked well enough and it was a toss up between that and fraps, and a lot of reviews said playclaw was better than fraps (at not lagging your system), so I figured I'd give it a go.
I used windows movie maker to make it, and I've just found that I could change the aspect ratio from the default (4:3), to 16:9 - which seems to make it more widescreen, as I'd filmed it (I had wondered why the completed clip came out smaller than the raw video files were)... so I'm uploading it again in that format.
The music quality was lessened a bit when it was added with the video, I assume it got compressed... although it is supposed to be oddly screamy at the end, (I guess it's sort of "edgy"). I can't seem to get the sound better than that though. There's 20 different choices for how to save it.... none giving any sort of information about which is the best quality one to use other than if it's for dialup etc.... so I chose the "high quality (large)" option figuring that was probably the best one, and that's what it made. I tried 3 more times with different options and they created smaller files and all the same audio quality. The DV-AVI option says it would make a 532mb file (for a 2:20 min video), so I figure that's probably the best quality, but that's going to be a *very* large file.... I don't know how large youtube videos normally are, to know if that's too large or not, but that seems very big to me. The one I uploaded was 46mb - the newer one 64mb... so it's a MASSIVE jump...
I have the render distance set to far, it can't go any further than that (that I know of).... graphics to "fancy". I know stuff loads as it's going, but that's one of the disadvantages of flying around, as your view distance flying is a lot more than on the ground, and as you're in the centre of the view field, if you're looking infront of you, you only see half as much as the render distance really is.... I don't know how other people deal with it, maybe their machines are better than mine and load quicker so it's not as noticeable?... the only thing I can think of to make that less of a problem is filming in short scenes so I'm only filming one view distance at a time so nothing has to load, but that means you can't really move forward much or your view moves into the next lot of chunks to load.
