    my tip/fix page?
    Different focus. The tips page is great for learning tricks, the Bugs page is better for making sure you don't lose your work / for finding solutions to problems (in theory). I started the the basic page but had to stop editing, so "fixes" don't link yet & it's missing a bunch: Bugs.


    alrighty then
    Heck yeah.

    I guy i know goes to a film college, and he's teachers says that the correct shutter speed is double the frame-rate. Tbh that also looks alot better.

    Edited:

    With traditional shutter angle of 180 film is exposed for 1/48 second at 24 frame/s.

    We need so more pages on the wiki, or is that all we know so far? D:

    (I'm trying to save this from dying, sue me)

    It's not all we know so far - we just need to compile the information and put it up on the wiki...

    Ok, here's the link dump from me reading through the previous thread. Stars represent how new/useful I found the info. I planned on getting this on the wiki (and still might do so!), but I'm filming something right now so I'll leave this here in the main time. Information is chronological and I skipped tutorials that are on the blog.

    *Lossless Codec

    Nature of Camera Entities

    Zooming in to Tracks
    Split/Camera Shortcut

    /*"Strave" Modifier
    *Quick-Set Focal Point
    Save OUTSIDE its directory
    /*Change Timescale & Noclip Speed for Camera Recording

    Don't Record World for Cameras
    A Problem
    And the Solution

    *Mess with the Talker Scripts!
    *Adding Film Grain

    (Outdated) Add Color Correction Entity

    (Unrelated) Render a Depth Buffer
    *Assigning Models to VCDs (via Faceposer)
    * Better Tutorial for VCDs
    *You Can Drag Clips from Clipbin
    /*Backup Your Clips Before Recording a New Actor

    /*Using Portal Content
    Run SFM as Admin!

    **Choose Specific Character Sound
    Freezing Time

    (Tyring to) Deal with Export Errors

    **Toggle-able Color Correction

    Faceposer Stuff Post #1818
    Faceposer Stuff Post #1820

    Building a Sentry

    Bots Stuff Post #1832
    Misc Stuff Post #1842

    Removing Track Groups
    *Reference Pose for Easier Animating

    Removing CP Hologram

    **Smooth Camera Animating

    F for Focal Point


    Edit: Now rendering for 2.6 hours! I couldn't get zoom working (animating FOV did nothing) but the DOF animation went great, along with custom models. I'll post it tomorrow, as well as hopefully get help with the FOV issue.

    I might write up a filming & editing guide, unless someone is already working on that.

    Right, don't know if this has been mentioned before, but whenever I export a movie, my media player says the .avi is broken, and it freezes the clip at numerous intervals, and the audio tends to loop and go out of sync.

    Does anybody have any ideas about this?

    3 hours of rendering later, I'm now on to compression

    I didn't realize enabling 8x DOF and increasing the aperture would make it take this long.

    Edit: Non-Youtube compressed for better DOF! Since that was kinda what I was experimenting with.
