    Yet another Vid question for Ondori

    Ondori, do you use Fraps to capture the vids? If not, which program do you use? I use Fraps and the files are still sooooo big after compression. Do you use a lower FPS or Res or what. How are your finished vids half the size of 1 min of footage for me? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks alot.

    The way they're captured appears to be via video camera. Which is why his Dynamis videos don't lag down horribly like with FRAPs actively recording.

    Thanks for the reply. So do you think that is the problem with file size? I dont really have a problem with Fraps lagging. It's the fact that 1min 30sec of video is 245mb after compression. Should I be changing it from AVI to MPEG? Would that help? I'm really kinda new to the whole thing. My main concern is file size. Ondori or anyone else, any input would be appreciated. Thanks ( '-')b

    AVIs save out bigger, and usually MPGs are more compressed. I do NOT use fraps, i use a video camera. Never got fraps to capture in the fps that i wanted... Even if it was just a little, it seemed choppy.

    Do you use a regular hand-held vid camera? Or one made for comps? Also which program do you use for the MPEG compression? Anyways, thanks alot for replying.

    I use a semi-pro sony camera that i have on a tripod that is aim right at the moniter. Also the camera has a 'computer' or 'monitor' mode that it uses to auto-sync it's self. if you dont have this then 60 Hertz refresh will be your closest. I use pinnacle studio's build in mpg saving features. I try to avoid all the codexs
