Original tutorial written by Murdoc @ qwdrama.com

First of all you need ezQuake to pull this off >> nQuake

Xvid codec >> Windows

Settings:
demo_capture_codec "xvid"
demo_capture_dir "movies"
demo_capture_fps "25"
demo_capture_mp3 "0"
bind z "demo_capture start 30 name.avi"
bind x "demo_capture stop"

Now you can start playing the demo and demo_jump to the right time. Press the button “z” and it will record for 30 seconds. If you want it to stop sooner just press “x”.

The avi is located in \nQuake\Movies\.

if you get tabbed out to windows, its because of the xvid settings. We can fix this by following these 2 steps:

* Go to “start”, click “run” copy + paste this line below
C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe xvidvfw.dll,Configure
* Then click “other options” and unclick the “display encoding status” (located at the bottom)

I'll just add that software like VirtualDub is good for further processing. It's not fancy editing software but it's free and I use it for things such as trimming out undesired frames and splitting videos into pieces for posting to YouTube.

Xvid and virtualdub should be avoided if possible
x264 in mkv good stuff however

I am not using fraps though.

hfyu totally didn't work for me.

xvid seems to be the way to go, but can't find the best settings yet.

I lose to much quality with the default settings.

I am converting the avi over to mp4 format.

demo_capture_fps "25"

Such low fps doesn't do QW justice IMO. 30 is absolute minimum, preferably 50/60. Even if most of your source is going to be ~30 fps MVDs, the interpolation is better than nothing.

Is there a way to record a full demo, not just a certain segment of time?
