.DEM to .AVI Converter
« on: June 21, 2004 11:48 PM GMT »
Is there such a thing as a .DEM to .AVI converter? I need something to convert CS demos to avi format so I can compile them in Windows Movie Maker. Is there a way to convert them, or are CS movies done a totally different way?

Tried it earlier, didn't find it. Why would I post here first? I found out how anyway, and it's not with a converter.

You need to use the viewdemo command in the console to extract the .dem into bmps(this could take up a LOT of HD space).

Then use a program like videomach or adobe primier to convet the bmps into a streaming avi.

There is a program called "Fraps" which records any OpenGL/DirectX games directly into high quality AVI files.  It doesn't convert .dem to .avi, you have to watch the demo and record it.

http://www.fraps.com

The downloadable version records at half size and has a watermark, but you can buy the unlocked version, or apprehend it by other means.  I would suggest buying it, because it is a very versatile program.  I used to use it to record my CS matches back in the day when cheating was really bad, it worked really well..  it's a ton better now.

*edit* That BMP way is really a hassle, but much much easier to edit and add in things with photoshop and flash..  if you want to straight up record the demo, fraps is the way to go.  There is also a program which converts any BMPs to JPEG as soon as it enters your screenshot directory in your HL folder (to save HD space).  I forget what it's called, but it is useful beyond what words can describe.

Yeah, I was going to put together and edit a movie. I do have a full version of Fraps, and it does work well in most cases. I'm going to try the .bmp thing for now, though.

But I'm definately going to look around for the converter thing though.
