Framerate issues in vdub

Hi, hope I’m not pissing anyone off by asking noob questions but I’ve googled and even read the n-year-old video guide with missing links and images bla bla and can’t get this to work properly.
It’s not the first time I recorded stuff and put it together with VirtualDub and so far I didn’t have any issues - framerate wise, atm not interested in quality and editing, I just want proper frames. I’d just record a demo, play it and record the movie then idk what magic tutorial on youtube I followed but worked like a charm! I’d open the first tga, change audio and video to full processing, select Audio from other file…, change video->framerate to 30 ( I think that’s what I did last time) and it would just WORK!
Now I twist and turn it, play with different framerates and nothing… I get a slow choppy vid with a choppy sound. If I remove the sound, it’s still a crappy vid. I tried host_framerate 30 in console and made no difference.
I then tried to decimate the frames, by 3 or by 5 (by 2 was still crap) and finally it was at normal/slightly higher speed and sound was good except, of course, it skips some frames so now the flow is gone like I’m lagging in game.

Seems like you got the basic settings close enough for a final product that’s not choppy and stuttering.

The question is are you rendering 1280 x 720 for HD?

If so then your PC is going to need a lot of power to play a raw HD video, if it doesn’t have that power it will freeze and stutter like you said.

Open sony vegas and try watching your raw HD video through the preview using low draft settings, if it’s smooth you know you need more power. You can still edit and render your clips but you will have to review everything through vegas previews.

Another test you can try is render the raw footage into any select codec (xvid, wmv, mp4) and see if it plays smoothly. Again if so your PC can’t process raw HD fast enough.

It’s most likely because it’s raw footage. It will come out smooth once you render it. If you’re using Sony Vegas, put the clip on the timeline, highlight it, and press Shift + B (or CTRL + B, can’t remember) which will prerender it and you will see it smoothly on the preview.

That’s all fine and dandy but I never used sony vegas, never rendered my previous vids and they worked fine before. I’m guessing now I’m doing something wrong in the record phase or vdub phase…?

EDIT: I noticed I can see the proper vid after I convert the avi to mpeg but… I don’t want to do this eeeverytime I want to check an avi output :neutral_face:

I don’t know man were you doing HD videos smoothly?

What you’re describing is textbook lack of performance, be it hardware or software something is not right.

EDIT: Don’t let VDUB steer you wrong, you can screw up the settings pretty bad and still get smooth results, I don’t think you caused this problem.

add me on steam, ill fix this in a blink of an eye.

steam : z4kx

No he won’t. Apparently yt sees that shit as HD…

Hey zeik, didn’t know u still play
Dog, don’t jinx it :neutral_face: btw ur sig is rly disturbing (me) lol

yeah i dont play lol, but i still edit :slight_smile:

Hey ghost, what do you know about editing?
you dont know shit.

Neither do you nor any of us kiddo, quit striving to be pro at anything you can.

@ade that looks like youtubes idea of HD to me.

You’re a pure fucking ignorant bitch, look at my video in my sig.
Im on a whole new level, no one in DM can do what i can do, only Dark Soul can because we work/edit together and im showing him some stuff.
I doubt you could do the same or even try to do it, dumbass.

Cool, I forgot Pixar and Universal were chomping at the bit to get you on the team. Clearly a professional. You couldn’t even make infprod

1.Infprod is dead.
2.Back in the days when it was active, i didnt know shit about editing.
3.Learn to fucking edit THEN come back to me, and you know that you enjoyed my video.

So you’re saying when infprod was active you didn’t know shit about editing? Interesting.

I didn’t watch your video, I hope it’s about a mediocre source player hopping from game to game cheating and making an ass of himself in each community still not realizing everyone thinks he is full of shit. Otherwise what experience could you possibly lend to it?

Yo, the thing is, you fucking cry about me cheating, then you bring up infprod? lmao.
You’re better than me in editing? prove it or shut the hell up, mister TSGK member.

Just stating the facts is all.

dont you dare talk to ghost dog like that idiot

Phantom Punch

damn man, i wish you guys could set up a LAN party so i can come and see how much shit you can talk in front of me, cause i know for a fact that you won’t fucking say shit to me.

But yeah dude if you still want to talk shit, go ahead tough guy, keep doing it. That monitor of yours gives you balls isnt it?.

Yeah I’m not at all a total asshole irl and wouldn’t beat the shit out of your pretentious angst filled ass. You don’t realize I use gaming to keep my rowdy ass off the street, all the people I see bragging about getting wasted and being tough fighting people makes me smirk.

The fact that you announce that you want to fight is all the proof I need that it’s foreign to you, people like you used to stop and watch people like me beat the breaks off of habitual line steppers, you are a nervous spectator, By all means come whoop my ass. Get mad at phantom I assure you he gives 1/4 of a fuck, he also thinks it’s stupid to let a pretender like you paste this site with your bullshit.

Lets summarize:

Zeik: I’m pretty pro gamer

Us: No you cheat and are terrible still

Zeik: Oh I pro hack coder none stop me

Us: You’re getting them from another person and we have proof

Zeik: Oh well than I pro troll I troll you and claim to be anonymous on an account with a username

Us: No you’re awful at trolling

Zeik: Oh then I pro editor better than u and him

Us: ?

What’s next?
