I understand, video aint the best, audio neither...but it isn't shaky as I have a tripod to hold the camera still. And I always attempt to record at times when it's silent around ;p
But for being a camera...the quality is alright.
I didn't say shakiness was for all of them, but more often than not. It's just my personal opinion on camera LP's in general. Same for audio. I also said that these things are only cherry toppers to my main gripes.
I decided to get started on fixing this commentary for Set 3 of my LP, since I have the time. Does anybody know if there's a way to quickly combine a ♥♥♥♥-ton of tracks all into 1? I am currently stuck having to individually cut and paste each track together.
So for a little while I've been having a random issue with Camtasia Recorder, and it happens sometimes when I am recording for my Let's Plays. When I finish my recording I hit the stop button. Sometimes it will let me save. But on rare occasions it tells me that there was some kind of problem and that the recording closes so I cannot save it.
I remember once when this happened, the next time I opened either Camtasia Recorder or Camtasia Studio, I was notified that it detected a recording that I didn't save and thankfully it wasn't erased into oblivion. But that didn't happen with my latest recording. I was simply told that there was an error with something or another and my recording simply vanished before I could properly save it.
So my question is: Does Camtasia have a little niche on my computer somewhere where it temporarily saves recordings? Because it had to have pulled that one recording I thought was lost from somewhere, right? And if such a place does exist, where would I look?
Better yet, how do I fix this recording issue? I do recording sessions of up to twenty minutes or more, so you can understand my frustration when I'm told that it couldn't save my work.
So I'm trying to get my Dead Space 2 LP going. Today I recorded my first clip for critique but I've run into a problem.
I use Audacity to record my voice and Fraps to record the game then I sync them up in Sony Vegas. Problem is it's a big file so I have to render it for YouTube. I'm rendering in WAV 1280x720 30p but I've noticed that Vegas Pro blacks some some clips in the timeline. It will render the first part, black out (but audio remains) when the second clip starts, then returns the video and continues rendering in the final clip.
Does anyone know a fix or know another program that can render without these problems?
That's a rather odd problem. I've yet to run into that in Vegas.
However, you say you're rendering in WAV? You sure that's right? WAV is an audio only file format. If that wasn't a typo, that might have something to do with it?
I tend to render MP4 in 1280x720 in Vegas at 28fps at a 2Mbps bitrate (helps keep the file size manageable. A ~30m video is around 300-400MB, and the only thing that is really high def for me is my frames, since the game footage is mostly native since I'm using a capture card.) You might want to experiment with the bitrate since the game you're playing is natively high def.
Maybe it's a problem with the thing you're using to view the rendered product? When I rendered my first video, it came out absolutely awful, but then we figured out it was because Windows Movie Maker sucks and kept glitching out, while Youtube played the video just fine.
So I've wanted to get my channel back up for awhile doing Let's Plays, Game Reviews, Collecting Pick Up Videos, and the like, but here's my problem... or problems.
#1. My voice sucks. I always sound like I'm nervous or scared or shaky. It doesn't sound in the slightest something you'd want to listen to.
#2. My editing sucks. I once used AVS Video Editor back in my YouTube days, and it worked fine. Nowadays it freezes and is glitchy. I wouldn't like to spend too much money on something like editing, because I want to be able to use an editing system that's easy to use and such.
#3. My computer... kind of sucks. When you use something like CamStudio or the like, or even trying to play Minecraft, even with the stuff like Game Booster it is still really slow.
#4. I don't got any video capturing system to my TV. Now I've asked this question before, but I honestly don't want to spend tons of money on something I'm not sure is even that good.
so it took me 2 hours to get the audio "working". I use the term loosely as I have been unable to actually get a full video to see if the audio needs messing around with. But at least I got it to record both my stereo mix and the microphone input.
I've also got the problem with video. I now have to play at a resolution of 800x600 because CamStudio is struggling to get all the textures, meaning anything higher is missing a crapload including mainly hair and ♥♥♥♥ as well as background textures. Now it's working better, but still lagging quite a bit. Spent about an hour on this so far.
random note, I've been testing with Fable: The Lost Chapters, which is like... 7 years old? dunno if that's related to problems recording, but thought I'd just say. Any tips would be useful

yep, my latest test has it lagging still. Could it be that my computer is running slowly?
