How to record KO2 clips using WinUAE

Postby gdh82 » Fri Sep 01, 2006 10:31 am

A clip of KO2 action brings a thread to life and the favourite goal thread is a good example of this. I wondered how difficult it is - anybody offer a few pointers ?

I imagine it partly depends on whether you've got any video recording equipment (I haven't) and whether you use the amiga or an emulator (i use winuae) ?

I have finally sussed how to save action replays now so maybe this is another option ? I've never got to grips with the output option in winuae as this seems to bring the emulator to a standstill.

Posting more clips, I think, could be used to illustrate many different aspects of KO2, both from quality players and newbies alike!

Thanks in advance

Saving your replays in an ADF helps, but it's not even necessary. As soon as you score a goal, just press 'R' to watch it, and before the replay ends hit 'F12' and go to the Output Tab. You will be able to extract a movie failry easily.

Thanks for that, Alkis. I've only just been able to try this out so sorry about the delay in getting back to you.

Could I ask your advice on which codecs to use? On the Output tab I selected Full Frames (Uncompressed) - this was the only one that seemed to work? This produces a .avi file which are very big! Is this best selection to make? And how do I end the output recording ? Pressing F12 again doesn't seem to stop ? Cancelled the codec seems to work but this seems a cumbersome way of stopping things. Thanks again...

Sorry, I had missed this thread.
It is only natural that the file will be huge if you record it uncompressed!
I usually select the "Microsoft Video 1" option at a 70% compression quality, 50 Frames/sec.

I've since worked out how to record a number of goals/pieces of action as one single clip when using winuae:

* save each goal as a state (.uss file)
* set up the appropriate settings for your output file
* load state#1 and click OK
* press f12
* load state#2 and click OK
* press f12
* load state#3 and click OK
(keep doing this for however clips you have)
* end the recording of the output file (I do this by deselecting the video codec)

Er-... all my apologies, but where can we define an *.uss file ? And where can you make settings in WinUaeXP ? :?
I tried to do like it's mentionned (F12 button) but nothing happened. :?

Is it possible to have a tutorial with pictures (for dumb like me ?)

Greetings.

* save each goal as a state (.uss file)


Press 'R' to replay the desired clip, immediately followed by F12, then click 'Misc' and within that tab you should see an section headed 'State Files'. You then clip save state. All it means is that when you reload that 'state' it'll resume the game at the start of your replay.

* set up the appropriate settings for your output file


After pressing F12, you can select the Output option and you should see a section headed 'Output Properties'. The video codec options were trial and error and I went with with Intel Video and 50% compression quality to keep file sizes down.

Just keep playing around and I'm sure you'll get there. Hope that helps as I doubt I'll be able to do a tutorial I'm afraid.

Er-... I think the problem is easy to solve : I have not the same version of WinUae than you, I guess.

So, I spent some times on Google, because I didn't want to be an annoyance anymore :P

I'll use Fraps.

Thank you very much for having helping me. :o

You weren't being an annoyance, my friend! :)

Tbh I find creating output files a little fiddly - sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't - so do let us know how you get on with FRAPS. I've never used it but would be willing to give it a try!

Fraps is as easy as you all mention about WinUae's method : one button to start/finish the record. Fraps create in a direction you choose the files, in *.avi
But the weight is important (for an example : around 20 to 40 mega-octet for each goal) but the video quality is good (no artefact on screen when you watch the files in fullscreen mode, or so few). :)

I'll put a video soon. :)
