  1. Hi there

    • Collect Footage from Every Race this season
    • Make sure the footage (in your view) passes the medium quality threshold (45%)

    this role is essential if the WT Highlights Producer (me) to produce the highlights in a quick but smooth manner
    you will receive full (if not most) support from me in aiding you to do the job in a reasonable manner
    if you are interested in this position email me at r.j.s.3@hotmail.com or pm here
    All Applicants will be rewarded with a possiblity (not saying you will do) of driving with Nemesis Racing (may need to ask James Peutherer first), plus promotion benefits through video views

  5. Ron, do you know how HUGE is raw footage recorded from rFactor? If you want quality then you will have to record it by yourself. Otherwise files would have to be compressed so much for being able to be shared that when you edit them, the quality would be even worse than you get now. Sharing raw footage from games is just not viable (around 30GB per 15 minutes of gameplay, and just @720, a lot more at 1080p, and even more at 1440p).

    If you expect a good job, then you need a good machine, as video editing from games is not meant for poor PC's.

    Anyway, although you think you can do it, it is not viable to share this files at today bandwidths.
     
  6. ok carlos i will take your advice the Video and Sound Quality Threshold is not longer essential to make the job easier but i cannot record it on rfactor as i have troubles with the mod and i cant find a approiate Encoding Compressor for the recording on rfactor only e.g. divx or mpeg

    I would love to have someone with a better computer to record the various clips I use, cause then it can be recorded in 1080p and look a hell of a lot better. But I have to just live with the quality I can, which is 720p. This computer isn't bad, its actually pretty good I think XD. What I'm saying is we have to deal with what we have :S.

    Carlos is right though, when using fraps to record my game footage, which I have been doing for over a year, 15 minutes is generally about 30 GB for my channel. And some of the stuff for rFactor I will record in its slow motion at about 120 fps so it can be really really slow motion, the file sizes are rediculous.
     
  8. Sony Vegas 10 adds a motion blur by default, and resampling is enabled for each clip. Sometimes I record shots with lots of cars on the screen together in slow motion, and then speed the footage back up again to achieve a higher frame rate. Having 2 hard drives helps too - one to run rFactor on, the other to record with FRAPS. I only use the default plugins for lighting (Glow, Brightness & Contrast). I record in 1080p, but with FRAPS set to half-size (blurs things a bit which looks better).

    This is quote from Simon Adebisi. Especially recording with half-size will help to increase the resolution/fps without experiencing stutters.

  12. However, we keep the option open to switch to rFactor 2 during the season if it is deemed ready by then. The calendar will be arranged to allow a long enough summer break to do so.

    this was said on the FSR 2013 Simulation Choice in the FSR News and Announcements Section

    Either way I don't think it's wise switching the sim in the middle of the season, as most of the people are used to rFactor. It would simply feel weird learning the new mod.
