Reliable video tools
« on: January 23, 2020, 09:40:33 am »
Discuss good video tools here:

Free:

FFMPEG (Requires programming knowledge but very good), free, as it is specific to what you tell it to do; other editors can mess with frame rate, file type, label(s)?

FreeVideoJoiner: Its sole purpose is that; a free video joiner. It comes with FFMPEG, but the idea is you use FreeVideoJoiner and combine the video without knowledge of programming, and using a command prompt is not needed.

Avidemux (Needs a little knowledge about file formatting, but reliable)

Kapwing (possibly), simple GUI with good support. However, I'm using it right now. It may be resource heavy. Like card editors, it's WYSIWYG, and may be enough if you don't want specific encodings. You have to have  an account/Google Account to remove the watermark, but as far as I know it's free? I prefer it over Windows Movie Maker which can be slow and have bad encodings. Resolution was published for me as 1280 x 780, which is not perfect; and for older Pokémon games it tends to stretch anyway? However, that can be a problem if you have lots of text and it is small.

Paid/shareware:
Bandicam (unsure specifics recently. You may have to pay, or you may have to have a watermark on the video. Otherwise, it can be a good screen recorder and setting up recording audio from the computer has been lots simpler in personal experience, where Stereo Mix can sometimes not work with other tools)

Grey legality:
VisualBoyAdvance video (not all versions of VBA may have it so you may have to find a specific build), WAV recording, BGB audio recording and frame dumper, which can be combined into a video https://code.google.com/archive/p/vba-rerecording

Good, but outdated, buggy:

Debut (Dazzle DVC-100); paid, but for streaming old consoles, etc.

✿ Hi, I'm Evie. No longer active here other than to answer questions, messages. Sorry I've had to step down and have demoted myself (will explain later). I suggest contacting Photon-Phoenix/Yuzihax, and Abwayax.

Forgiveness. I feel that the more people pray to our greatest source/God/mathematical equality for world peace, the more and more it manifests into reality (until our next spiritual death).

Thank you Nyapon for this lovely artwork. :3

ffmpeg does not require programming knowledge, merely command line experience and attentiveness. Also you forgot WinFF (the classic ffmpeg wrapper for Windows) and Shotcut, which is Sony Vegas but free.

i'm also on keybase and bitchute but i don't have nifty buttons for those. Bitchute isn't ready yet, but will be eventually.

Thanks. Yeah, programming knowledge wasn't the right words. You can get experience by searching for scripts on the Internet, modifying them and following the instructions, yes.

I should point out that VBA is a crappy emulator, and recommend mGBA instead.

More topically, DaVinci Resolve, a video editor which has a free version and is available for all three major OSes.
The Hoennese Realm is under construction. Watch this space!



All sprites made by Naitekiakki, except:
Recolored Gardevoir made by me

Missing? NO!

OBS is a great piece of software to use for screen recording. You can record your entire desktop, a window, or even attach a capture card and record footage from a game console. You also have the option of live-streaming your adventures if you don't want to record them locally. Highly recommend--there's really a lot you can do with it.
