record a flight

Novel Guest

Hi all,
hopefully somebody can help me. Is there a possibility to record a flight and export it to an avi file ? Or any other ideas how to record it ?

I have the Filghtsim 2004

Thanks

There is an option in one of the menus in FS2004: "Flight Video" or something like that. It records your flight and saves it in a file thrown into the "Flight Simulator Files" directory which also contains all saved flight plans. I think it can be used only by the FS.
I've tried it once, but the relpay wasn't the same exactly. It was more like the computer got crazy or maybe a bug, but you can try it in your own FS. I assume that you won't have this problem.
Converting to an AVI file is beyond my knowledge.

Try one of the demos to see if this is what you want, I've seen some and they are pretty cool.

fraps is pretty good

film it in a low res like 640 x 800 to get the most fps while filming

then use VirtualDub to compress it..

compress it twice...

get the divx codec or something, go to Video>Compression and find the divx codec

click configure and there is a few drop downs

1says "multipass 1st pass" compress it with that (by selecting the option then doing "save as avi", then change the compression to "multipass nth pass" and do it again

usually comes out looking quite nice after all that

If you use fraps you can also use Power Video Converter in order to convert (and of course compress)your AVI saved file to any format you like.
