Hi I'm back with another nerd essay. I'll be using some recently posted fragvids to get my point across. Hope you don't mind

This is basically a list of things most fragvids in this thread have in common. (ONLY applies to simple fragvids. I personally differentiate between simple fragvids and actual montages like many community videos which can have way more editing, for example PREM by CUBE).
In general the competitive community has always shown a preference for minimal editing for fragvids.
  • No minecraft youtuber intro needed. We can see who you are by your forum and youtube name. Most intros are simple fade-ins. You can risk it and get a bit fancier with a short smooth intro though. We're here to watch people get sick frags so our attention span is limited and the first couple of seconds usually decide whether or not we watch more than 30 seconds of the video. Also the TF2 community dislikes lime green for anything that isn't crosshairs. I believe it's a subconscious thing due to pubbers and tf2center mains with lime hats. I wouldn't recommend putting your name in that colour
  • No need to add some sort of shadow around the edge of your screen. Just obscures the view, can't read the killfeed at times. Aside from recording demos in maxquality settings TF2 doesn't need much to look good. Minor color correction should be enough if you still think you need to mess with colors. Controversial subject though because many people don't even want maxsettings and prefer the dx8 comanglia config look
    About the filters, I do like some 2008 nostalgia at times, just not for TF2 fragvids
  • 60 fps, but you did that so that's fine. Others still need to learn though.
  • Clip quality. Here we go again. Basically just set a standard for yourself on what a minimum "coolness" of a clip should be. I usually go through all my bookmarks and describe them in a short sentence in notepad, then I decide if each clip is worth putting in a video. Usually I drop around 30% of my bookmarks before i start recording, and I do the same process again after recording for some extra quality control.
    The reason I underlined "for yourself" is because your standard doesn't have to be the community's standard. You can set the bar lower, you can set the bar higher. I personally set it slightly lower because I know my gameplay can barely compete with many people on this forum, but I still make sure the clips are enjoyable in one way or another. Think about what your standard should be because you do actually have a couple of decent clips, but then there's a sniper vs medic 1v1
  • Music. Completely subjective ofcourse. You can use whatever music you want. Just know that an edgy overused song combined with dubstep will get you some downvotes regardless of how good your fragvid would've been. I believe this is the main source of your downvotes. No need to give a fuck about this though. shadowburn's videos were still liked and he was the edgiest of all edges when it came to music choices

Thank you for the feedback it is most appreciated I. There were some very interesting points made by Tob about minimal editing and cat and I will take this into consideration and Tobs point about the quality of the frags, music and if I post further frag videos on here I shall try to meet this criterion as well as the points about intros and the vignette corners of the screen. Again thanks for the input especially Tob as writing essays take time out of your day and you put a lot of thought into your response.

does anyone know what the ideal bitrate is for 720p on youtube to prevent it from heavily compressing the vid?

if you're uploading at 720p the bitrate cap is gonna be horrendously low regardless. try upscaling your video to get a higher youtube bitrate.
