I had a little fun with the Guild Wars 2 beta this weekend, and it gave me the perfect opportunity to play around with video recording. I’ve used FRAPS a few times before, and it’s always incredibly easy, but when it came time to upload to Youtube I could never find the right settings so it wouldn’t look like garbage.
Finally I took the time to figure it out! Turns out Sony Vegas was a little easier to work with than Adobe Premiere, and after a few hours of experimentation I think I’ve got something that looks pretty crisp at 1080p.
I’ll probably do more of this in the future, and it might be fun to try livestreaming too. We’ll see!
