    Well here we are at V8 and we are still going strong.

    [release]
    Rules:
    Try to keep the images/videos/gifs/cave drawings you show interesting.

    PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD POST THE NAME OF THE GAME YOU ARE SHOWING – I don’t care how obvious the game is, post the name of it. There is someone out there that will be interested and would like to know the name.

    DO NOT POST BMP OR PNG IMAGES – They are massive in size and kill our 56k connections.

    DO NOT QUOTE LARGE GIFS.

    Do not post Spoilers for recently released games – MEDIA TAGS DO NOT WORK SO YOU CANNOT HIDE THEM.

    We are allowed to post LEAKED game image AS LONG AS you DO NOT say where/how you got it. That is classed as WAREZ and you will get banned.
    [/release]

    GIF TUTORIAL - Credits to WATEVAMAN.
    How to make quick .gifs: GIS Edition


    Whatchu need:

    -An input video in .avi format (FRAPS is what I use for game capture)
    -VirtualDub


    Whatchu do:

    I'm going to go ahead and assume you already have your video file in .avi format. If not, Google something called SUPER and get it into an .avi container.

    With both VDub and your .avi video file at the ready, open up the VDub application (Veedub64 in my case) and you'll be greeted with a nice window that looks like this:



    Can't do shit with this, so now what you want to do is take your video file and drag it into the VDub window, so now you'll have something like this:



    If you're like me and you are recording fullscreen, you'll want to see both your input and output file so you can review how the .gif is going to come out. To resize the video you're seeing, right click the frame and select something managable like 50%:



    As you can see in the shot above, there are now actually two frames on the screen. The one on the left (that you just resized to see the right one) is the video based on the input file. The one on the right is what you'll be seeing when you export your .gif. Keep this in mind as you work around.

    Now that you have the program set up alright, it's time to get down to the .gif making. There are three main buttons that will help you when creating a .gif in VDub:

    Home
    End
    Delete

    Home is used to start a selection, End is used to stop the selection, and Delete will delete the selection. If you're deleting from the beginning of your .avi file, you don't need to start the selection with Home, simply create the endpoint by pressing End. In order to get finer control over which frames you're deleting, use the left and right arrow keys to go frame by frame. This can also be used to delete any duplicated frames, but be warned, as this can cause unwanted speed artifacts when you compile the .gif.

    When you have narrowed down the area you wish to make a .gif of, it's time to make it reasonable enough to fit on the web. To do this, we're gonna have to resize and/or crop the frame. At the top of VDub, select Video>Filters. Then, select Add and scroll down to the Resize filter.



    Because I'm using such a large native resolution, I usually choose a relative size of 25%. You can use any size that you choose, but remember that .gifs can get very large very fast and you don't want people having to load a 20MB .gif of your dancing elf in WoW.

    You should notice now that the right frame has decreased in size:



    This is good, as now you have a full feature preview of what your .gif will look like. If it's not looking good, you can go back to Video>Filters, select the Resize filter and then the "Cropping..." option to make it fit snug.

    Once you're done with all this, go to File>Export>Animated GIF. Make sure you have selected "Infinite loop" or else the .gif will stop short.



    Then, find the location you want to save it and hit Save. There you go, now you should have a .gif that you can upload to your site of choice and share with the world (aka this thread).

    If you have any questions, just ask.

    You can also make .gifs in some versions of Photoshop (I have CS4 and can), but there are tutorials all over the place for that, so I won't make one of those.

    I couldn't get into it because of its lack of advanced video options. Couldn't turn off SSAO without reducing all of the other settings and that was what was causing me problems, annoyed me pretty badly

    Don't think so, but speaking of, I got that game today and I'm gonna play it tomorrow, it just finished downloading. I bought IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover but that game is way too complicated for me as a beginner, I tried the WoP demo and it was alot easier

    I've always been interested in it, is it sold on Steam? I can't find it in the Store.
    And ofcourse I had hoped to use the Summer Sales as excuse to buy it.
