Making Videos

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 found here:

Vodhin's tutorials - 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)

AutoScreen Recorder 2.0
A Tutorial

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 so.

Good luck in your movie making, and I hope to see as many of your videos as possible.
