AlleyKat Presents:

EVE ONLINE VIDEO MAKING TUTORIALS
SHORT FILMS TO HELP YOU MAKE YOUR FILM


Ok,

I decided to put together some tutorials in video format to cover the most common questions about making an EVE-ONLINE film.

These tutorials are going to grow as I add more to the list, and plan to cover the basics of getting your EVE-ONLINE film off to a good start and more.

All of the tutorials are in MKV format, should you need codecs for this, the links are below. I did consider using Flash video format, Windows Media etc, but MKV gave the best compression when using screen capture recordings.

All of them were recorded straight from my desktop and are narrated by me - apologies for that!

These are not small, blurry tutorials, they are full screen and specifically designed for EVE-ONLINE videos.

Should anyone else wish to create their own tutorials, please post the link here and I'll update this main page. Also if anyone has something specific they would like to see covered, then post the topic here and it will be considered.

Credit where credit is due, many thanks to Chribba for supporting this project by allowing the tutorials to be located on the www.eve-files.com LINK website. Also thanks goes to Dark Shikari for helping me with the compression of the screen capture.

I'd like to thank any other contributors in advance of them creating a tutorial.

AK.


You'll need the CCCP (codec pack) or VLC (standalone player) in order to play these video tutorials. Also note you need a fast computer to play it back without stuttering. If your computer is too slow to play the videos at full speed, download this codec pack and install *only* the included CoreAVC. If you have the CCCP or FFDshow already installed, disable H.264 decoding in its video codec settings to activate CoreAVC. Note that VLC does not support CoreAVC.

^^ Sticky ^^

Nice work. I look forward to an in-depth Vegas tutorial...as I more or less get frustrated and just move the project over to Windows Movie Maker instead.

One thing to note, regarding the Windows Media Encoder 9:

(He sort of says this, but it isn't exactly clear as to the folder he is referencing)

When you create the profile in the WM Profile Editor, you have to save it under the "(Disk Drive):\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\Profiles" directory. Saving it on any other profile directory will not work.

WMM is funny like that. I run dual core w/ 2 GB RAM...and I have to make sure to save every 1-2 minutes. It seems to not like when you preview...pause, and then change things/add effects or transitions. Multi-tasking basically fails. But I agree, it would be nice if WMM was a little more stable.

It is currently not working using the premium graphics, which is why the tutorial was filmed in classic mode.

I'm sure CCP will fix this soon.

Thanks for the feedback,

I have planned to do another 2 or 3 Vegas tutorials, but would not want to go too advanced - otherwise the tutorials become too much about Vegas and not about EVE film making.

I'm sure you can appreciate it would be boring as hell to watch a tutorial about every single button and tool that Vegas has to offer. These tutorials need to be as practical as possible. These early tutorials will seem technical, but you will see them ease into more focused and EVE-related topics as I go forward.

I'm wide open to feedback on which topics to cover for future tutorials, so feel free give me some ideas - and I'll see how best to cover the topics and still keep it EVE-related.

hey mate

thanks very much for this guides there. I just got the Adobe Creative Suit 3 Master Collection (student Edition, thats why i could afford it haha ) I need it for webdesign and print design things. BUT because of your guide here, you motivated me to start frapsing again and also use Adobe Premiere to do a eve-movie, wich maby goes public if ill get enough content ;)

So keep it up - its realy a help and a kickstarter for everyone who maby thought about making a vid once ;)

cheers
