does anyone know how to make the kill feed a different color for kills by the person you're recording in a stv demo?

sorry if it's already been asked

sorry if it's already been asked

To my knowledge, there is no way to change the colors only for one player's actions in the actual game because its an STV.
You would need to mask out the color and edit them in/out yourself.

Here's a good tutorial on the topic:

The basic concept of the video starts at about 7 minutes.

that's a shame it's so complicated. I might just have to go in search of pov demos then. I really want to start making some videos, I think I've got all my settings working with premiere pro and lawena. Though the videos I'm testing with seem to be really laggy for me on YouTube, not sure if it's my internet or if i've set something wrong. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vntdlRk8V7M

you can do it with statusspec
https://github.com/fwdcp/StatusSpec
that's what beater used in his videos since season 20 of etf2l.

You can change the killfeed display as it would for a pov demo and you can also change nicknames through statusspec to keep the movie tight with consistent aliases. Pretty useful and have used it in the past for the i55 teaser etc...

so im on a really shitty 3 and a half year laptop

its a stock pavilion g6
here are the specs

would i be able to make videos using lawena and such and if so do i need to change settings in lawena? or what do i do in general because im tired of recording frags with fraps

thank you

lawena will always record the same number of frames because it uses the host_framerate command, the only thing that will change is how long it takes
so for example a super fast pc may be able to record some clip at a given frame rate in 5 minutes, whereas another older pc might take 15 minutes to record an identical looking video
shouldn't need to change any settings, just have to be more patient
the only real limiting factor is disk space (though this can be worked around with srcdemo, which only saves the files temporarily, thus reducing file sizes exponentially)

Works fine. I have an old laptop as well and did a test with random clips from some newbie mix. Quality is fine and I did basically exactly what's written in the thread here except I changed some settings to render in 60 fps in Sony Vegas
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQudWbEBwKM

But like bearodactyl said it does take longer to record. I have nothing to compare it to so not certain what the difference is, but you'll have time to get a drink while recording (depending on the length of the clip you want), come back and still have plenty of time left before you can stop recording

Also do yourself a favor and don't have your headphones on while recording. It'll keep looping the same bit of audio over and over while it's recording (but the audio WAV it gives you afterwards is fine)

I also have a pretty crap-tier computer and awful monitor.
Some helpful things that I've found while making videos.

Sourceres
Made by Lange, I think. It changes your tf2 resolution so that you can record at 1920 x 1080 etc.

Source recorder
Made by hl2mukkel. Better than lawena imo. It records videos much faster than lawena by converting directly to mp4. It has some kinks and problems but you can overcome them. I'm planning on making a tutorial for doing that.

You can find them by looking them up on tftv.

thank you letting me know this was a problem because when i tried using lawena a few months ago the audio kept looping and syncing the audio was not possible because of it. so im glad i know this now.

ill try this as well as everything else and see which works out the best but i will definitely try sourceres because im at 1366 x 768

You do realize that Vegas costs 600 dollars and you should not be encourageing piracy. Nice guide none the less though

So last time I recorded something with Lawene, the reload animation of (at least) the normal rocket launcher was kinda broken, It looked a bit like the reload from the original. Anyone knows how to fix that?
