Every every every time you log into lineage 2 you should have fraps running. Have fun alt-tabbing to get fraps going whilst getting PKed. Fraps only eats about 2 megs of your ram so just run it all the time.
Set gamma to 5. Audio to 5. Ingame resolution to 800x600.
LEARN TO PLAY L2 AT 800X600 RESOLUTION. Everything seems too big at first but you get used to it fast, and 800x600 makes absolutely beautiful movies. If you try recording at any larger resolution you won't be able to read damage or chat or even be able to tell what the
is going on. 800x600. Trust me. I'm finalElf.
Hit your video record hotkey to start recording. Test it in your loading screen. Set your audio levels to "5" and make sure sound is recorded. Lineage 2 videos without sound are like hookers with a penis. They look good at first but then you realize all they can do is ^_^.
If you run ventrilo or TS on the same computer as L2 you will be able to hear vent sounds whilst playing. This is a good thing. Don't be afraid to let someone hear your clanmates nerdy voices during pvp. It adds to the ambiance. Silent L2 videos are really really really really lame. If you are really pro you will have ventrilo running on a different computer so you can keep in game sounds cranked to 5 at all times.
Remember that while recording you cannot talk on vent. All people will hear is your ingame sounds. You must stop recording to talk on ventrilo.
Importing Footage Into Vegas
Record at least 2 diffent 5 second segments of video from the lineage 2 loading screen for a test. Remember that the FPS you get at the loading screen will be much higher than what you get in PVP.
Exit the game and load up vegas. Your fraps movies will be in c:\fraps. Put vegas in window mode and click and drag the two videos from their folder into the grey area in vegas (the timeline).
