GSoC project: Video Output Tool

Hi all! I haven't written in my blog for a long time, so you maybe forgot that I am responsible for implementing video recording in Hedgewars.

Screen capture software usually skips frames if your computer is not fast enough to record & encode video in real-time. But video recording in Hedgewars is not real-time; instead it first records game demo & camera positions and then starts video encoding in background using as much time as necessary. The result is that you can easily record high-resolution videos.

To record video you just need to press ‘R’ during a game. You will see a red blinking circle in top left of the screen indicating that you are recording video right now. After all interesting events have passed press ‘R’ again and recording will stop. Then actual video encoding will automatically starts in background.

Here is video showing how it all works:


And here is screenshot of the page with list of recorded videos and options for video recording (click to enlarge):

I love it!

Looks really good, it's nice to see how well this works already.

Cool, looking forward to this.

will it be possible to record a demo?

Currently you can't download it. If you are using Windows I can give you compiled version. Otherwise you can try to compile it by yourself (instructions for compiling are at dev-wiki http://code.google.com/p/hedgewars/w/list).
I think it will be included in next version of Hedgewars.

I tried to record a video episode using this. It looks like you need to press R again to make it work. I didn't do that after i finished the game. It just exits automatically I use windows 10

time to record the demo in fraps :/

You can record segments at any time by replaying demos. It'd be a good idea to enable timestamped demos to make this easier.
