Hi everyone,

Last night I finished one of the videos I was working on. You can watch it in full HD 1080p or 720p resolution. I hope you all like it.

A very cool concept!

What do you use for high definition screen capture? Does FRAPS do that well? I used FRAPS for screen capture a few years ago and file sizes were horrendous. They could have improved since then, I suppose.

Yes I used Fraps. Depending on your graphics settings in game is what Fraps will record video. The higher the in-game resolution the better the output but that also means it takes up incredible amount of disk space. Fraps is still the same so yes you'll need lots of hard disk space for it.

I think after rendering the 7 minute file came out to be 72 gigabytes which is not bad since after converting to MP4 it came out to be about 400 MB.

Recording all the footage with Fraps is what took the most disk space I think somewhere around 300-420 gigabytes.

Nicely done and well thought out. The music blended ok and while some parts seemed a bit dark or not as close as you might expect it too it came out nice. My only thought might be the occasional pan from the rear view of your bridge to a front view every now and then showing a little more of your Captain. Heck maybe you could get someone to beam on your bridge and act out the roles of number one and other positions to add some flair.

Either way I hope to see more in the future.

Thank you for your comments CajunAndorian.

As my first try at making a STO video I didn't know how it would turn out lol. If time permits I will definitely try to gather as much flair as I can for the next video
