Step 1-Set up and Intro
Okay, after I saw Laderlappens signature's , I thought of getting one for myself. But having my character blocked and not 1kk to give for the signature, I went to make my own. S-Porn told me to make a tutorial. So here it is.
What you need:
Step 1-Set up
- Adobe Photoshop CS4/CS3(is what i used and it really works well)
- A video editing software, I recommend Windows Movie Maker(Usually comes with Windows, But you can download at http://www.download.com/Windows-Movie-Make...-10165075.html) and VirtualDub(www.virtualdub.org).
- A video capturing software, I recommend Fraps(http://www.fraps.com).
- Some time
- Kalonline(for this sadly enough, i recommend a private server, unless you have what u want on int)
Im guessing you have already thought of by now what you want your signature to become. Maybe Halfswing, Spinslash,Storms,Focus Shot or maybe just your character Running in circles. So we are going to need to capture that. For that we will need Fraps. After downloading and installing, you should open your fraps program and change your settings.
This should open up:
From Here go to Movies:
Okay, Here I think some settings should be changed around, Try to have the same settings as me, Because 15 fps is really enough, more than those many frames in a sig will make it really huge and possibly too big for a forum. I chose No cursor option checked because U dont want to have a cursor in your sig maybe. You can see the ill effects in my sig which has it with showing. You can also change the place where you want to save your videos too, Make it a hardrive with more free space, because these usually will take up many megabytes each. You can also change your video capturing button, though F9 is fine for me. I also chose Full-Size, though Half-Size works.
After doing this, and understanding this you minimize your Fraps program, it is still running remember. Now you want to capture your video. Okay I know this might be controversial, But i really recommend to use a private server now. Why? Because private servers have /set hideme and /set hideui available which helps you capture footage much better, not to mention /set time x(hour on 24 hour clock) which lets you change the time of day and night in the game for a brighter or darker video. Try to find a private server with a extremely high rate, and that has the int armors and weapons all in it to use. It might take a little leveling on them but meh. For my sig I used Unbreakable Kal(search it on google, a highrate with easy g50-g60 armors and weapons, This server sadly replaced half swing with spin slash and Lightning summons with the Lightning Arrow, but it might be good for others too. I have a EA vaga CJB there for sigs if anyone needs for there sig send me a message. I want to say that fullscreen should be used when taking the video. You can change back in the kal folder by opening system.ini in the folder and changing MODE_WINDOW=1 to MODE_WINDOW=0. You can also change your resolution to optimal in setting.ini and change
to your specifications. Now that you are ready to go letís move to the next step.
