Here are a few options on how to make your videos.
For those of you who do not know how to make a video with RCT3's
in game video maker, Vodhin made a great tutorial that can be
- Just click on "Making Movies"
However, this tool can take up a lot of time, as it renders only
one frame per second at a 30 FPS framerate, meaning it takes 30
seconds to record one second of video. A 3 minute video will take
5400 seconds, or 1 hour 30 minutes to record. There is another
solution though, FRAPS.
There is a free trial for FRAPS, however it does cost money to
buy the full version. I would recommend this program the most.
You can get it here:
Finally, a free video capture program is below, however it will
not record sound unless you buy the Pro version:
(Note: I have not tried this in-game for any game, only desktop
tests, and cannot guarantee lag-free recording or high quality)
The tutorial shows the Pro version of the program, however, you
can still get a good idea of how the program works. I'd recommend
using the Windows Media Video 9 Compressor/Codec for your movies
for maximum compression while everyone who uses a Windows computer
can view them. XviD and DivX are both very good too, but people
will have to download and install the codec if they have not done
Good luck in your movie making, and I hope to see as many of
your videos as possible.
