I was only turned on to YouTube about 5 months ago. I have been using it pretty regularly since but I never posted one. Now I have posted two using FRAPS, VirtualDub (for compression of the FRAPS files) and Windows Movie Maker.

I'm not a computer newb but I would like to know how all these people are making cool videos with highlights on the screen ,text and logos on the screen and all that stuff. Am I just missing that functionality in Movie Maker 'cause I just have not played with it enough or are poeple using something better?

As a self plug this is the first video I made. Its on the long side and its pretty basic.:o

I use windows movie maker, and here are my videos. I don't know if they're very good.

In the task bar there's a button that says "add titles or credits" which is how you add text.

I usually make a lot of frames in Photoshop and transfer them to WMM. THat way, there's a lot more control over what the video looks like and how its presented.

I can't really offer you much advice as someone who's not that experienced either. I'd like to see what advice other people have to offer :)

Good luck with making future videos too :tmb:

The music is great.

Nice on the vid. I actually had seen that one before so nice to put a TRF member to it.:D

Any tips on how you got the music sound track overlayed on the game sound? I had trouble editing the sound. So far it is just sounding like I just need to spend more time with the program. Are you two guys using FRAPS for the recording of the game footage? If so what program are you using to compress the files? VirtualDub?

I usually always rely on internet downloads to put everything together. I don't have FRAPS and most of my TR games are for the playstation. As for sound, I'm not so sure. I haven't yet found a way to mix tracks successfully with dialogue. Perhaps Audacity is worth a try? hmm...

I used to use internet downloads, but for some reason they won't open in windows movie maker anymore. But I use fraps (which strangely enough won't record sound).

I use Windows Movie Maker, though my movies are rather 'rough' :o
