um, slayer, I got a littel prob with adobe. I can't put clips in the timeline somehow. And I can't preview it, I only hear sound. I got 512 mb ram. Could that be it?

I don't believe. I tried it on my old laptop with only 256MB RAM and it worked, slowly, but did. I had the similar prob with trimming audio tracks. Restarting the program helped. And if you've worked a lot and then wanted the preview (with lot of effects) 512mb RAM might be the tight spot. I have 1 gig RAM and it eventually runs out of memory. Reboot the comp to clear the RAM. Or maybe your HDD is the problem. Try to clean all the unneccesary files and empty the recycle bin.

What I now get as preview are pics of 1 couler. like if there's mutch green in that part of the clip, you will only c green. But now my prob is that I just can't get it in the timeline. if I start a new project. I tried to look for tutorials, but can't find.

Hm, make sure that all the items in the timeline are also on the left side where are all the "source" items. But I think you're prolem is that you haven't created a new sequence. In the items window select "new item > new sequence" (or something like that, dunno). You'll get a "Sequence01" or something similar by default. Of course, you can change the name.

You can't actually do something with the sequence file, but they're required when starting and editing a project.

I just tried to show a friend my AVI files, and it did nothing. it showed the time, and the memory, but it did not show the action, or the sounds. what happened? do I have to have the game on the computer that I shouw it on?

Sometimes it helps that you shut down fraps and then play files recorded with fraps. Because of some reason those avi files remain locked until you turn off fraps (not minimize to tray).

fraps does sound?

And Slayer, it works. Just didn't make a sequince thingy. Do you know if premier can also make such intro that blackout had? if so, could you tell me where to look. Ow, and credits at the end, apart from that I'm starting to get the hang of it.

so, let me confirm this (remember, this is Unregistered Fraps)

I do my recording,

Fraps:

sound on, 30 FPS, half size.

GTA settings:

frame limiter on, MIP mapping on, 600x800x???, FX details low.

I do my recording, and then I CLOSE FRAPS?

then I look over it on my computer. then I can copy the files from my folders onto my thumbdrive, and then bring it to the school, and open it in Adobe Premier.

anything I could possibly be missing? at all? any ideas on how to reduce filesize? anything I need to consider, any details not being brought up?

dunno much about since I'm only starting now. Butt just make the clip and (dunno if premier can do this) put the same to windows movie maker. Before the film get's made there it asks what bit rate it should have. That will make the filesize far smaller.but mabey premier does this to/

well, thats why this is a forum. the people that DO know, they can read and answer. its like asking me about weapons. I can tell you all about guns (and sometimes which ones in game they should replace if you make one)

I need help with video making, so I am asking here. Slayer has a good insight, so perhaps we should hear him when he speaks (or read carefully when he posts).

Well first I'd suggest you to get 1.9d Fraps. It's ugly if you have a watermark. If you're gonna use the replay feature remove the REPLAY text with GXT tool. Chris has written a tut if you need one. If you're gonna record in real time (while playing) turn off the HUD and radar.

If you're going to release a video at medium quality (320x240) play at 640x480x32 and record half screen (if you have unregistered Fraps) but I'd suggest you to get the free version, play at 640x480x32 and record full screen so that you get your vid at the same resolution (640x480).

Other than that, keep MIP mapping off and FX qual low too, unless you need to use some of the FX effects from SA in your vid (fog, rain, scratches on vehicles...). If you need these, set the FX qual to max.

Keep the frame limiter on and set fraps to record at 30 fps. So, play the game, press the record key, press it again to finish recording. After you've done all the clips, turn off fraps and get a preview (with WMP or WinAmp).
