What do you use for creating videos for promo?

Post by musikmachine » Sun Apr 17, 2016 8:53 pm

I use FL Studio for zgame editor which is nice but i hate editing automation in it. I've looked around for something similar for Live, i recently bought Geosynth which i cool but i need Spout to export and i couldn't really follow the set-up from the tutorial video i watched.

Btw in case anyone isn't aware Quicktime support just got dropped on Windows and will be open to exploits but i guess i'll need to install codecs for any max for live video devices to work? I'm looking for something i can load, automate the parameters and export otherwise i may just as well use FL Studio.

Cheers!

The 64bit version of Live no longer requires Quicktime I was told.

Spout isn't really an export option, it just allows you to send your video into another application... I simply use screen capture software to capture the visuals...

This is a great option for screen recording and it's free.

Do you need to do anything to configure spout or does it just need to be installed? Which screen cap program do you use?

Anyway yeah that's what i'll use, geosynth is awesome and FL has always been a but unstable; crashed when i tried to export the video last night. :roll:

Looks really good, so i can simply capture the A/V and upload the rendered video to youtube?

Yes. It will probably take a bit of tweaking to get the best results from your system, but I have had good luck with it.

Open Broadcaster is good for broadcasting, but the best I've found for Windows user's screen recording is the equally free

Expression Encoder 4 (discontinued but still available)

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downloa ... x?id=27870

it has a screen/video capture thing, it can capture the audio too, and it comes with a kind of editor/encoder which spits out not entirely industry standard WMVs but they are very small in file size and perfect to upload to youtube.

Awesome is the sauce! That's what i wanted, something straightforward. :D

Seems to be a bit of a learning curve with OBS so i'll come back to that but if Encoder gets the job done i'm golden! :)

Looks like i could just capture the video with Encoder and then finish it off in the editor which is ideal.

Only the 64 bit version?

Apparently (according to Apple on their QuickTime download page) they've ended support on Windows because the codecs/files have been supported in Windows itself since 2009 so it's not really required...
