Converting .dem to .avi aka Making a CSS movie
« on: October 04, 2009, 04:36:53 PM »
I've tried this but my game crashed for the two demos I've tried converting... but the only help i found on this so far is:

(1) Change video options to window instead of fullscreen
(2) Load a demo first
 - hold down keys [shift] and [f2] for demo menu to open
 - let a demo play
(3) Open console (~)
(4) Type: startmovie DEMONAMEHERE avi
(5) Select your fps
(6) After you're done the file should be saved in your CSS folder (with demos).

----

If anyone has a better/easier suggestion that people should do to convert demos to .avi or video, please help. :)

would've be better if you play the demo and then record with fraps like how they did on youtube for zombie horde ?

I MAKE VIDEO GAME MOVIES AT A PROFESSIONAL LEVEL, WATCH MY MOVIE I MADE FOR JK3 lOL [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsYsE5EeiH0[/ame] (GIVE IT 5 STARS PLZ LOL)

HERE IS WUT I DID

EASY MODE:

1. GET DEMO
2. GET FRAPS (DOWNLOAD IT ILLEGALLY LOLZ)
3. WATCH DEMO AND RECORD WHILE U WATCH
4. CONGRATS YOU GOT AN .AVI

HARD MODE:

1. MAKE DEMO
2. FIND COMMAND THAT TAKES LIKE 30 SCREENSHOTS PER SECOND (LOL I DONT EVEN KNOW IF THIS COMMAND EXISTS FOR THE SOURCE ENGINE BUT IT PROBABLY DOES)
3. CONVERT YOUR ASSLOAD OF PICTURES INTO AN .AVI USING SOME PROGRAM THAT DOES THAT (I CAN HOOK YOU NIGGAS UP IF YOU RLY NEED)
4. SAY GOODBYE TO 2GIGS ON YOUR HARDDRIVE FOR LIKE 1 MINUTE OF FOOTAGE. THANK GOD FOR VDUB AND LOWING RES AND SHIT THOUGH)

Okay, I got it. :P This is how you do it... So far... its what I did with my video:

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELfUtawbAE4[/ame]

But... it looked sooo horrible before I uploaded.. was all pixelated and the video didn't play - just the sounds worked... lol.

(1) type into console "startmovie demoname.dem avi"
     -Be sure your CSS window options are WHOLE WINDOW and not Full Screen.
(2) type into console "play demoname (demo you want in the movie)"
(3) after your stopping point of the demo, type into console "endmovie"
     -If the demo isn't over yet, hold down keys SHIFT and F2 to open Demo PlayMenu to stop demo manually.

Where is the file located after the movie has ended its recording?

 Go to your Pre-CSS Folder. C/Steam/Steamapps/FOLDERNAME <-- this folder. (Not the CSS/CSS folder.) open this video with Windows Movie Maker. (I

This is actually faster and easier than fraps for css clips. You just need to choose the best codec. While recording "startmovie Testing AVI" choose the codec "Microsoft Video 1" << compression quality 100. endmovie after finished then locate the movie in Counter-Strike Source (A good quality with audio).

I'm planning on making a real nice trailer for ZH like I mentioned on the other threads somewhere... but it's going to take some time. It'll be awesome if someone beat me to it.
