So basically as long as I record in 720p HD quality its all good? is this acceptable quality?


Haha I just watched the whole video...
-Very knowledgeable and great skill level with the game
-Fantastic intro albeit a bit lengthy
-Good video quality

Just my 2 cents, but you've got some good stuff going on.

Well, what you did there was having an opening with crazy loud sound in 720p resolution, the actual footage seems to be much lower and not even in the correct aspect ratio.
So either make the footage 720p or just change the intro and make it in the same resolution as the footage you're recording(or rendering). Other than that just make sure you keep the volume of intro - footage around the same level.

Quality-wise it does look okay.

The watermark is atrocious.
First of all, do as Aeterna suggests, and use the correct aspect ratio. It looks really bad having a watermark on a video that doesnt fit the screen stand out like that. White on black does NOT make it blend in.
Use a different font and make it look like it belongs there, not like you just slapped on some text.
The quality is not bad, but then again, if you render in HD, that's most of the battle. Size it correctly and do something about the brightness.

Thanks for the suggestions, Im new to this whole vegas thing (as you can probably tell). That level is dark generally, it is set to be a night level. I thought the watermark just had to be bold and stand out but I suppose its a bit to plain and ugly.
Do you have any suggestions for the intro or should I keep it as is?

The intro is way too long, first off. Over 20 seconds of the video are dedicated to an introduction. When I first was doing introductions they were around 8 to 10 seconds... and even I felt that was really pushing it. I've dropped that completely at this point. Check out Razzalyn's videos as they are a great example. No introduction video at all, just a GameAnyone.com logo that is attractive and allows the viewer to know what the video is for. Razzalyn would be a perfect example for you to strive for as she does not use commentary either.

Most games allow you to change the brightness level or gamma in some way. I've turned up the brightness in my Thief LPs quite high to ensure what I do is visible even though the game should be pitch black in many places. We want to see what you are doing, not watch shadowy shapes bounce around on the screen while we strain to figure out what is going on. Make sure to pay attention to the brightness of the game when you first record and do what you can to increase the brightness if necessary.

I remeber thief deadly shadows being pretty much pitch black on default brightness so I get your point.
Following Razzalyn I will delete the intro video, and ive made the watermark brighter and hopefully not incredible tacky. If someone could give me a watermark to use, as im not to good at video editing that would be helpful. I know you guys mentioned in another thread that different ones are better but I dont want mine looking like a piece of crap Wink

All you have to do is to insert a text to one of the corners so it is not annoying the viewer. A lot of playthoughs are having watermarks that maybe cover the health bar or somthing like that. Try to make it small and viewable. The most recommended is to make a text watermark. Do not use an image or something. just use a normal font like arial, and maybe make it a bit transparancy (But not too much). Also to maybe make it a bit cool, then search on the web for a font that also have been used in the game itself. So if you are doing the 007 playthrough, then try to search for a 007 font on the web.

A recommended website to find a font is http://www.dafont.com - This website are having thousands of different fonts that you can easily install.

Ironically, I saw this post just as I finished my Starcraft walkthrough, with big ol' ugly watermarks off to the side of the screen.  Oh well, I'm looking forward to proving my worth as an apprentice, and hope to join the ranks of the exalted.

Fifty watermarked or audiomarked videos. All other videos can be uploaded to GameAnyone.com, but will not count toward your total for becoming a director.
