    Hello and Welcome to General Ingame Media V11 - March Edition


    [release]
    [h2]RULES[/h2]

    Try to keep the images/videos/gifs/cave drawings you show interesting.

    PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD POST THE NAME OF THE GAME YOU ARE SHOWING I dont care how obvious the game is, post the name of it. There is someone out there that will be interested and would like to know the name.

    Be respectful of others, just because you have a super fast internet doesn't mean other do. Do not posting retardedly large .GIFs then say "Get over it", No fuck off. This thread is for everyone.

    DO NOT QUOTE LARGE GIFS.

    DO NOT post Spoilers for recently released games MEDIA TAGS DO NOT WORK SO YOU CANNOT HIDE THEM.

    We are allowed to post LEAKED game image AS LONG AS you DO NOT say where/how you got it. That is classed as WAREZ and you will get banned.

    If your image is larger then 1920x1090 then wrap it in [t][/t] tags.
    The way I see it it's both a courtesy/common sense issue. On average between audio and video any given youtube video of reasonable quality will be about 30 mb to stream the entire thing. If you're posting a 20+ MB gif of something that encompasses like 5 seconds of footage, you may as well just post a youtube video. While clearly there's no set rule, try to keep gifs under 10mb, prefarrably 5mb because 5 mb is comparable to any large .jpg or .png file.

    Spos' you could always make exceptions for really awesome/hilarious gifs that are worth the 20+ mb, but if its just some "look at these god rays in this 30mb gif" then don't fucking post it, you're just being bothersome to people with shitty ISPs (ie: canadians)

    Protips:

    - You can crop .gif files in vdub. If nothing interesting is happening in 80% of the gif, you may as well just crop it down to the focal point of the image. The other 80% is just wasted pixels.
    - You can change the framerate of the gif to something smaller. Sure 60 fps is nice and smooth but you're effectively multiplying your filesize by 3x for little gain.
    - Open .gifs in GIMP/PS as they have more efficient options for saving them that will cut down the filesize by a good 30%.

    For example here's an "optimized" verison of one of those gifs. There's a 4 MB difference between them for some pretty minor changes. You'd be cutting off about 10-12 mb from that post all together. (not directing this specifically at you dsi1, just a general example)

    [release] [h2]New WebM rule; no WebM. It is shit and autoplays all videos at once.[/h2]
    Hey, if you're being annoyed with the fucking WebM videos like I am.

    Go to about:config, search for webm, and toggle it to false.

    Watevamans .GIF Tutorial
    [SUB]Spam him with PMs and Hearts to show how helpful you found the tut.[/SUB]


    How to make quick .gifs: GIS Edition


    Whatchu need:

    -An input video in .avi format (FRAPS is what I use for game capture)
    -VirtualDub


    Whatchu do:

    I'm going to go ahead and assume you already have your video file in .avi format. If not, Google something called SUPER and get it into an .avi container.

    With both VDub and your .avi video file at the ready, open up the VDub application (Veedub64 in my case) and you'll be greeted with a nice window that looks like this:



    Can't do shit with this, so now what you want to do is take your video file and drag it into the VDub window, so now you'll have something like this:



    If you're like me and you are recording fullscreen, you'll want to see both your input and output file so you can review how the .gif is going to come out. To resize the video you're seeing, right click the frame and select something managable like 50%:



    As you can see in the shot above, there are now actually two frames on the screen. The one on the left (that you just resized to see the right one) is the video based on the input file. The one on the right is what you'll be seeing when you export your .gif. Keep this in mind as you work around.

    Now that you have the program set up alright, it's time to get down to the .gif making. There are three main buttons that will help you when creating a .gif in VDub:

    Home
    End
    Delete

    Home is used to start a selection, End is used to stop the selection, and Delete will delete the selection. If you're deleting from the beginning of your .avi file, you don't need to start the selection with Home, simply create the endpoint by pressing End. In order to get finer control over which frames you're deleting, use the left and right arrow keys to go frame by frame. This can also be used to delete any duplicated frames, but be warned, as this can cause unwanted speed artifacts when you compile the .gif.

    When you have narrowed down the area you wish to make a .gif of, it's time to make it reasonable enough to fit on the web. To do this, we're gonna have to resize and/or crop the frame. At the top of VDub, select Video>Filters. Then, select Add and scroll down to the Resize filter.



    Because I'm using such a large native resolution, I usually choose a relative size of 25%. You can use any size that you choose, but remember that .gifs can get very large very fast and you don't want people having to load a 20MB .gif of your dancing elf in WoW.

    You should notice now that the right frame has decreased in size:



    This is good, as now you have a full feature preview of what your .gif will look like. If it's not looking good, you can go back to Video>Filters, select the Resize filter and then the "Cropping..." option to make it fit snug.

    Once you're done with all this, go to File>Export>Animated GIF. Make sure you have selected "Infinite loop" or else the .gif will stop short.



    Then, find the location you want to save it and hit Save. There you go, now you should have a .gif that you can upload to your site of choice and share with the world (aka this thread).

    If you have any questions, just ask.

    You can also make .gifs in some versions of Photoshop (I have CS4 and can), but there are tutorials all over the place for that, so I won't make one of those.

    Ahhhhhh, that new thread smell. Sad to say I don't have too many new screenshots that I'm proud of, so here's some obnoxiously high resolution Mass Effect 2 to celebrate the finale's imminent release.

    Upload, maybe filesmelt.

    Compressing gifs you make in vdub can be done with gimp, just open it up and save it (in animation format, dur) and gimp saves it to a different color depth that is only ever so slightly worse, and takes a few megs off the file.

    Doesn't mean it has the graphics of crysis or that the game is demanding, The game looks good no doubt but there are alot of games that have alot better graphics.
    I'd say most people test their hardware with benchmarking tools like heaven or what it was called and Battlefield 3.

    Crysis doesn't really do anything with my computer, i can run the game maxed out with no problems, whereas with Serious Sam 3, custom settings Maxed out and my computer can handle it, but i'm worried in case it overheats, with Crysis i'm not. (Bad computer history, old computer couldn't run Half Life 1)
