Creator: woekele
Description: Recording of a jump sequence in Urban Terror 4.0 by woekele. Jumps were not all done successfully in one try. I edited out the many mistakes ;)
Maps: ut4_freakjumps_beta by bierla
Music: Nova Nova - Tones (Cafe Del Mar)
Codec�s: video encoded on 3000kbps xvid single pass || sound encoded on 128CBR mp3
Resolution: 800x600
Length: 3:40
Size: 80,5MB

Procedure:
-Recorded a demo on a server.
-Set quality settings in video card control panel to high (Anti Aliasing, Anisotropic Filtering, etc.)
-Started ioUrbanTerror, turned off full screen, set to 800x600 resolution and set all settings to high and turned off some interface stuff, like lagometer and fps-indicator. Set cl_avimotionjpeg to 1 (set to 0 if you want it to produce uncompressed, which is huge but higher quality) and cl_aviframerate to 25. Bound video to F7 and stopvideo to F8. Set r_gamma to 1.8. Used a compile of ioUrbanTerror that does gamma correction, even when r_overbrightbits is 0 (will be publicly available starting at 4.1).
-Played back the demo, and used F7 and F8 to record the video0000.avi, which is about 1.8GB).
-Loaded the video0000.avi in Adobe Premiere and did editing (cutting/music/effects/intro) and exported it as uncompressed (both audio and video) .avi with 25 frame rate and 800x600 resolution, which created a 7GB .avi file. Interleaved audio every second and used max precision in the key framing options. Could have used a compression directly from Premiere, but it didn't work properly for me.
-Loaded the 7GB .avi in virtual dub and compressed it to xvid and mp3. Did some experimenting with what bit rate gave the quality I wanted while maintaining a reasonable file size.


More tips/guides can be posted in this topic.

I think most tips and questions about movie making itself can be found on www.own-age.com, as well a good place to get inspirations (not stealing).

Config for movie capturing in ioUrbanTerror/ioQ3: here
(if you really must capture it in Q3A for whatever reason, contact me and i'll adjust the script accordingly for Q3A recording).

Copy it in your q3ut4 directory and when you started UrT type in console:
/exec nexumovie.cfg

(Make sure you backed up your own config "q3config.cfg" first!!!!!!)

ALT = change between first person and 3rd person
CTRL = change between drawing hud elements or non at all
F9 = Turns hud items on/off such as teamscore, teamoverlay, teamoverlayscore
F10 = Turns timer on/off
F11 = Start capturing an avi
F12 = Stop capturing the avi

F1 = slowest (0.1 normal speed)
F2 = very slow (0.25 normal speed)
F3 = half of normal speed
F4 = normal speed
F5 = double speed
F6 = 5x speed
F7 = 20x speed
F8 = 100x normal speed

[up/left/down/right]ARROWS = camera preset for angles in 3rd person view
NUMPAD5 = camera preset with fixed distance and angle from behind the character
NUMPAD UP = camera closer to the character
NUMPAD LEFT = turn camera left of the character
NUMPAD DOWN = camera further away from the character
NUMPAD RIGHT = turn camera right of the character
NUMPAD[1,3,7,9] = camera preset positions

See the config for the rest of the bindings like FOV change.

Note: At the end of the config there is where the resolution is set for. See the list of res* variables. Its default set at resHD720p settings (1280x720). But it's best if you turn it down. To let say DV resolution (res720_480). Just adjust the last line accordingly.

For capturing scenes for a movie its best not to use fullscreen mode so you can tell the engine to run at a resolution of some video standard (DV NTSC, PAL, HD) which your monitor might not be capable of doing.

EDIT#1 = Updated the link
