F1 Videos

Post by shyguy1001 » Fri Aug 05, 2011 1:41 am

Since the new F1 season is coming up, I would like to ask who would help in the creation of videos for the races, similar to the SCARTS ones seen on the youtube channel SlidersTV. This doesn't mean I have given up on SCARTS ones, just these take a long time to create and I haven't much help.

Help would include:

Commentary
Checking when important events happen in races (crashes, pitstops, passes)
Creating of graphics for the broadcast.

If I can get enough names here, and msn addresses too, I plan to perhaps create a practice broadcast using a previous race asap. I know Jurgen and others have already told me their interest - would be great to have anybody on board so hopefully we could get the whole turbosliders community watching them.

Well, in which case, I need a fluent speaking englishman to be co-commentator, and perhaps someone who is good with graphics to create some nice looking graphics for videos :) But, I suppose we can begin work on the first test video.

We will use the first race of the 3rd league:

http://www.turbosliders.com/view_cup.php?id=127

Any ideas on what to include in the "broadcast" will be most appreciated! Here is what I plan:

Part 1:
Intro
Pole Lap with perhaps commentary
Grid Run Down
Start of race up to 15 minute mark in video

BREAK

Part 2:
Completion up to end of race
Podium (with national anthem perhaps)
Run down of championship points/team points etc.

Should make for a very nice 30 minute programme :)

Lanz and Dede please contact me on msn sometime.. anybody else who wishes to help it's shyguy1001@hotmail.co.uk

I will need either a run down of all the events happening on every lap, or perhaps a run down of each players race and what happened on each lap for them. Whichever is easier.

Graphics wise - well I need:

- Some way of timing pitstops
- Some way of showing the positions during the race
- A lapcounter possibly
- Perhaps a way of showing laptimes comparisons during the race
- A way of presenting the starting grid
- A way of presenting podium/finishing positions/championship standings

And anything else you see in your typical F1 broadcast that you think would be a good idea :) As you can see, it's a lot of work, and would be too much for me to do by myself and still get video's out weekly.. Of course, it is always possible for me to do the graphics, but I am sure better results would be achieved by someone who has more experience in graphics than me :)

Nice idea, Shy.

I'd suggest you to do this with the next Fun Race instead of an old race. People who are already competing could show to their friends and that could attract more people to play. Half of these people on this race are not even playing anymore. I think it would be nicer to show people are playing now video of themselves. Just my opinion. Any video will be very nice to watch.

I think Burn is from NY. Maybe he could do it. I can speak english but I don't really know how to be an narrator/commentador, especially with some words used only on F1.

Bye :D

Indeed, but I haven't seen Burn around for ages.. and besides I would like someone that plays F1 week in week out so knows about how it works.. the reason I want to test on a league race is because Fun Races don't include pitstops or anything :)

Fraps, it was about £20 for a licence, not sure how much it costs now but otherwise you can only record 30 second clips with a watermark :) And then to edit, I use Sony Vegas Movie Studio.

Dede - I have a job for you. In Season 4 videos (which I plan to take roughly 4-5 days to complete, so should always be up before the next race DEPENDENT ON COMMENTATORS), I will use the pole position lap from the race for this but - could you set a fast lap of the turtleton track please and send me the recording? No mistakes please, I plan to add a little "track guide" segment before the race :)

Ok, but I'm not home now. Maybe Tijny can wank a perfect lap before I go back home. Right? :lol:

Oh yeah, I still got it baby. It's really too bad about the sand hit in the bottom right part, I guess it didn't cost me much time but it just doesn't look right. Haha, 15 laps and I'm almost 0.150 faster than I was 1 year ago with 1859257827387 laps of wanking. :P

So here's the result of a lot of work, testing:

Part 1:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQJ-S5ov ... ideo_title

Part 2:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bj6oW32F ... ideo_title

Part 3:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etV_SK8z ... ideo_title

Enjoy :)

A few small notes:

- Sorry for the poor/quiet audio in places. It will be fixed for next week.
- Sorry for how late in how this came out. It will be fixed for next week.
- Sorry also for the pronounciation issues! We need that clarified! Tay-nee, dead-ay???? :P
- A few small errors at the end of the video due to sony vegas crashing, me loading the autosave and not noticing a few errors. At the end of the points standings being read out in part 3, there is a long silence. This was filled by audio that got deleted. Also, in the final race edit video, theres a short blackout. This was also a small part that got deleted. Let's hope for no issues next week :)

All suggestions are highly welcomed!

Thing's I want to implement in coming weeks:

Driver reactions
Better in race graphics

But I need help! The more help I can get, the better!! If you enjoy this video and want them at an even higher quality every week, offer your services, however small :)
