Re: Tera Online Closed Beta

I liked Vegas, but I was having a problem with getting a separate Audio file to play with previously recorded video. I could add the audio file fine in the Windows Movie Maker, so for the project I was doing I needed speed vs. professionalism.

I'll eventually tackle it again once I get free time.

Adding a separate audio track in vegas is almost painfully easy for anyone who has ever even peeked at a NLE.

What do I know though? I did edit a two camera wedding without having external timecode or the luxury of a clapboard... Audio syncing manually! Then overrode the on-camera audio with a recording from the soundboard.

Basically, I recorded the audio outside of Vegas, then drag and dropped the audio into the program. Preview didn't play the sound, so I figured I would render it and see what happens. Rendered it, no sound.

I swapped over to Movie Maker, drag and dropped the audio same way as Vegas, previewed, heard everything fine, made the movie and away I went. I never went back to Vegas to try and toy with it, since I got the finished product I needed.

Track could have been muted. Master volume could have been too low. Any number of things... There's a bazillion keyboard shortcuts that one could hit accidentally.

The only thing wrong with Vegas, really, is that rendering is a giant disaster unless you know a lot about video editting. They've done it a bit better in 10, but you still need to be confident of your choice, ESPECIALLY if you want audio with the video.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was one of those things. Like I said, I was in a short time crunch for it (neighbor kids school project that he waited until the day before it was due to complete, did some googling found Sony Vegas trial and away I went).

I'm guessing they've got some useful how to videos somewhere for it? I'd like to dive more into it, so I can redo some old home movies so I look cooler than I actually was. Audio will be a key part in that!

I have a recording interface with a pretty decent mic as I use to do recording for fun but I'm too lazy to set it up just for this. I'll see how my headphone mic works. If it sucks I just won't do any voice overs.

Voiceovers are a critical piece of any gameplay video.

Most headsets have decent enough microphones. Setup audacity (free!) and record through that rather than relying on FRAPS to do it.

There's tons of tuts out there for Vegas. I had to use one recently for the multi-camera stuff... That was by far the most complex I've ever had to edit and it was a BLAST

Thanks for the info! I'll try to do into this in a few weeks when I've got time between SWTOR and wife

Link? Did they send you an email? You log into your account and download. Man I can't stop playing. Movement was akward for about 5-10 minutes but once I got the hang of it AAHH!! Can't stop. The gameplay itself is excellent. Traditional guesting style very common to Aion. The game is not Korean Grindy at all. It's about 9/10 on meeting expectations to me.

Here's just a short clip of some Warrior Combat. Not the great and I kept missing on my charge attack blah. I was level 21 and the two mobs were level 22. I thought I was going to faceroll them but it actually took some thinking. As you can see the AI is pretty decent and combat is strategic not such hack and slash.

That's pretty awesome. I just started playing a Warrior--feels like the combination of a Rogue, a little DA2 action, and The Witcher 2's dodging/evasion system (actually had my double-tapping my WASD keys in some fights trying to combat roll out of an axe swing).
