You want HIGH FPS, and LOW client-side lag, FAST loads and computers that run like a scalded cat. (I know you do because I do too! Twisted Evil )

Since you won't have a resource-hungry vid-capture tool running anymore, YOU CAN!

Similar to Half-Life 2's built-in demo-record feature (which records to a small file), Eve-Online should have it's very own...

BATTLE-RECORDER


It keeps the file size small by recording only position data over time, not video & audio. When you replay the file later on, it re-renders the whole scene, allowing you to record it then, without any the lag, without any the slow-down, without any choke, so you can concentrate on your video after, not during, a fight.

In playback, you can set the camera position over a time-line so that replayed your über camerawork will be shown, allowing you to share some superb vids.

The idea is this tool comes in two 'flavours', the Battle-Recorder, and it's partner, the Battle-Player.

BATTLE-RECORDER
* Records positional, directional information etc. in realtime to your HD for later edit and playback, not just raw video and audio like current video capture.

* Allows you to edit the saved battle information and add camera tracks, pans and zooms for dynamic and stylish angles over a timeline in realtime.

* Uses ONLY A FRACTION of the resources typical vid-capture tools require, allowing CLIENT LAG-FREE PVP, fleet or otherwise, as well as detailed recording, at RIDICULOUS RESOLUTIONS!

* With such power over the timeframe, it allows you FINE-TUNED CONTROL on where the camera is, doing what, at any time.

* Snapshots, allowing those perfect moments to be captured!

* The perfect tool for anyone who doesn't want to capture at 1920 x 1200 Shocked, because that's nuts. Well, NOW YOU CAN easily record in 1920 x 1200 Shocked, edit it IN REALTIME, then capture your work of art with your favourite vid-capture tool, convert it and post it up to EVE-files for all to see![/list]

BATTLE-PLAYER
* Plays-back the previously (edited) battle, full-screen/windowed, ready to record with your favourite vid-capture tool!

* It might even be possible to implement an AVI or frames export, eliminating the need for a seperate capture tool, so you can get right into editing the video with your fav program.

* FREE ADVERTISING from epic community videos?

* A tool allowing users to analyze fights in great detail to fight smarter, or as an intel tool, to highlight strong/weak-points in both yours and your enemies fleets! This can be done in your own client or in the conference room to your whole corp in Incarna.

* STREAM the Alliance Tournament DIRECTLY to your client? So you could WATCH IT HAPPEN LIVE at home and be your own cameraman and listen to the commentary via EVE voice!

* Ghost-out other ships, like passers-by, so people know at-a-glance they're not involved in the fight and pay them no heed.

* The greatest benefit will be to the new players. You no longer have to explain something in detail, you can just link them a tiny file to download and watch in the Battle-Player!

This post is informative and relevant to my interests.

No really, I would love to have access to a feature such as this.

Mainly because my computer is a single core, so recording large fleet engagements results in me getting 5 fps. (not that large fleet battles dont lag enough anyways) lol

This would certainly make it easier to create videos from within EVE, particularly staged content on Singularity (or a quiet system on TQ) to be used as part of a bigger project could be arranged once with many players then do the tracks, pan, zoom in the recorder at a later date.

I think it would encourage more players to create videos in the future.

That's the plan ^^

I'm hoping that the amount of users who're just gagging to show off spectacular fights will encourage and support the idea.

I know there are some fights out there that were amazing to be part of, and imagine if similar events could be intricately filmed and shot with depth and style, quite literally dragging the viewer into the middle of the action, without having to do it on-the-fly.

I'd buy that for a dollar!

(BTW, Dev's I'm sick of making up things to respond with to avoid the dreaded bumpage.

Pls sticky this? Twisted Evil)

Very useful idea, as you mention it's been suggested a lot, and it would be a worthy addition to the EVE API & tools arsenal.

This I believe would be an excellent tool to have, keeping in mind that we have new reporters flying with our faction warfare pilots.

Wrong subforum for "support" ? Wink

But yeah, totally /signed, since I had basically the same idea too (as I'm sure many others did before me).

Think you've missed the biggest motivation for CCP to implement this, huge amounts of free coverage/advertising from all those amazing HD kick ar*e video clips floating around if only they would make this possible.

The biggest problem I see with this is that being able to have the camera do exactly what you want would result in some very good transitions and great action shots... action shots that would immediatly bring to light just how lame the ship disappearing in ball of flame and reappearing as a generic static wreck truely looks... :-)

For great vids to be truely immersive, some small things need to be fixed... Launchers need to be added, wrecks need to be fractures of the base ship, and capsule ejection ports would be t3h b0m8....

Of course I'm being overly critical, an inflight recorded is something that should have been here since the beginning. Imagine the training that could be done for noob corp members.. "Everyone load up noobguys flight log... Now, see here where he get blown up at the gate while he has no actions for 15 minutes because he was on the phone? Don't do that..."

/signage

the ship tracking could work something along the likes of how GPS tracks work, basically just recording the coordinates, velocity etc of each ship along with whatever weapons were in effect and who got hit by what weapon etc.

This info then gets written into a log file which in itself shouldn't be editable, in order to prevent any "faked" incidents, so some sort of Public Key or PGP signing could be used by the client to do this.

You would then be free to load this file into the battle-recorder and setup your camera tracks etc before exporting it as either a movie or as a playable non-video format file which would be smaller than a video file and which can be opened by the battle-player.
