    The POV thread - Gaming videos

    EDIT: I was unaware of the older thread. Check out that one too!

    Let's try this out. Me and others have been posting videos in the screenshot thread every now and then, but in the interest of keeping that thread pure, I thought I'd create a dedicated one for moving pictures. Maybe no one will care, maybe it will be pretty fun.

    I'll start out with a swoop through Gunslinger's arcade mode. Might be unfun to watch since I'm pretty crazy with the mouselook, but other than that I think the game looks pretty swell in action.



    To clarify: This is a thread for our own videos, primarily of ordinary gameplay footage. No need to post TB:s latest or whatever since everyone knows where to find that if they want it. It's a complement to the screenshot thread, is how I view it.

    Related question: Is .avi a bad format for uploading to youtube? I record in 1080p with shadowplay and get really good results (just a bit washed out colors), but on the tube it looks much crappier. I guess yt just compresses everything a lot, or is there a way to get better quality?

    Here's a short clip from State of Decay. You just have to love vidyagames.

    So what's the view on your own montages or video edits with music?

    Completely fine by me. As long as it's your own video and has footage from games it's fit for this thread.

    Mine records in MP4 I think. It seems to like it best. But yea YT has crazy compression either way. Your video looks sharp though, I think that's the best you can get basically.

    Yeah I wasn't clear on that; shadowplay gives me .mp4, and the program I use to trim the videos saves as .avi by default, so I just went with that since I don't know what's optimal anyway.

    Sethos: Nice! I'm hopeful about that game. Compared to Star Citizen it seems to have much more reasonable ambitions.

    I was expecting porn, and then I read the "Gaming Videos" part...
    And now for something completely different
    Hurray for thread specialization!
    Steam(shots), Imgur, Bak'laag, why do you forsake me?

    If you look at the development roadmap for both games, they are remarkably similar. Planet landings, space stations, walking around and all that. In Elite, they are even talking about being able to land on a planet and go hunting! So ambition wise, they are pretty much the same.

    However, despite my $250 investment in Star Citizen, I don't have an incredible amount of faith in the product. Everything seem so chaotic, not sure where they are, not sure what to expect really and their dogfighting module was incredibly pointless. It didn't really show anything, didn't instil any confidence, the flight physics were terrible and overall I'm not sure what it was meant to show ...

    Now that you've mentioned shadowplay, any idea if this is also working with ATI cards? The system requirements table (unsurprisingly) only lists Nvidia cards. I am asking since I've been looking for a capable (even better if also free) recording software for a while now.

    On topic: Great videos all around!

    Great videos all round. I would like it if you could put the specs or at least say if you have a high end machine etc, while in the screenshot thread, everyone can get the top end for a shot if they go down to single figure FPS, but like that Elite footage was stunning (nice work on the editing too) and I was wondering if I could run the game like that with that smoothness.

    Although rated poor for only killing six Exalt units, I feel this is just about as efficient a mission as is possible.
