For all those people who constantly make threads/posts and keep coming to crank, myself and matt, about how do to the things listed in the title, here is a quick thread to point you all in right direction in how to do such things within the tutorials provided by tek-9 cinema members: Vacuum, Agour and Sotka! The links are in the Images.
- Moviemaking for Dummies - By Vacuum
This tutorial contains the following topics:
- Setting up COD4 for using the avidemo function
- Learn how to record ingame footage with highest quality by using the avidemo function
- Understand how avidemo works, what it does, and why you should not believe everything wikipedia tells you
- Bringing your footage into a Video editing Software (f.e Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere)
- CoD4 Skinning Tutorial - By Sotka
As skinning is getting more and more popular for movie making purposes, here is a step-by-step guide for people who want to make their movies come out cooler.
- Call of Duty 4 Custom Skies Tutorial - By Agour
Everyone has seen 'custom skies' in CoD4 movies, well this guide will tell you how to make real in-game skies (no more green-screening!). This will eliminate the badly tracked skies you see all too often in movies, and give your skies a real authentic look. Its quite a long process the first time round, but once you've done it a few times the whole process should only take about 5 minutes.
- How To: Rip Models - By Agour
This tutorial will teach you how to rip models from inside of CoD4, including charectors and guns.
