'Cosmic Serenity' - An Orbiter Film

Hi all! I hit a stopping point on the rFactor film I'm working on, so I decided to make a short Orbiter film with the extra time. Something a little different... Thanks for watching! :)

watching! :)

The year was 2062, the location Mars...the memory will be with him forever.

Great Videos!
What video capturing software did you use to make this?

I have a question about the movies. How do you do something like make a playback work in Moviemaker or other
programs like it?

New film released with DGIV featured! Thanks for watching all. Dan, I forgot about this before posting a new thread
in the Orbiter forum. You can just delete that one if you like, sorry for that.

I don't quite follow you here..? I use FRAPS to record in the sim and it saves recordings as avi. You can then open the
avi in a video editing program. ;)

Very nice as always :applause: :applause:
After the 2001's Kubrick's touch, here is again the Tex's touch ;)
It's a real pleasure to watch your work.

You should postulate for Aresa World addons and/or O c t o b e r S k y mod. I dream for the day you'd video-
advertize them :love:

What do you think about if DigTech Co. made a portuguese subtitled version of the film "Final Flight" (my favourite tex-
-films' film), Tex?
Give me what the space do you want to preserve on the frames and the script, I'll make the fine replication of the
Harley's words.
Please post the answer: Yes or No.

Some people don't understand English, and I only know this language and Portuguese. I think another people would like to see
this awesome film.
I've already made a "sketch" of a subtitled film, but I will release  the finished work only after the script (send it to
DigGil@hotmail.com) and the authorization from the author, of course.

Hi Dig Gil,

I dont have any problem with you adding Portuguese subtitles, as long as the film itself remains the same including
all credits remaining intact etc. You are welcome to add a credit to yourself for making the Portuguese subtitles.

Hi mate. Sorry I havent seen this till now... but I'm not sure I follow you. You want me to show you how to make a
movie with DG4 and fraps, yet you haven't downloaded them? Even I couldn't do that. ;)

Making movies like I do takes some time and patience and skill which I've developed over the past 2 years. The best
recommendation I have is to get a copy of fraps, a second hard drive for recording, and a good video editing suite like
Sony Vegas. With those tools you'll have everything you need to make movies like mine.

Of course, if I made a video I wouldn't like someone to take frames from it. Thanks.

All I have is two thumbdrives (or pendrives), my father's PC that has a 39GB space, 11.3GB left...

Do I really need an extra hard drive? :trucdeouf:

I recommend a second hard drive for two reasons...

1. You will get better frame rates while recording if you are not recording to the same HDD which is running Orbiter.
2. The file size of video clips recorded with fraps can be rather big, usually between 700MB-1GB for every minute of
footage recorded.

So with your current PC, you would only be able to record around 8-10min of video with the free space you have left.

So then you updated your computer to fit some surcomstanses?

CamStudio runs better in my computer than FRAPS.

I have edited the ABFO (Advanced Buildings For Orbiter) video, with the titles and stuff. It was 21.9 MB big. It is in an .avi format.

Secret: Save as avi and edit with windows movie maker!
