Hey guys, I was thinking of making some Garry’s Mod videos, I have most of what I need like Garry’s Mod itself and and in-depth knowledge of operating it, as well as some addons that greatly help with cinematic stuff, but I still have a couple questions.
1.When it comes to getting the footage itself, the most common tool i’ve seen used is fraps. Do you have to buy it to use the capture feature or can you get what you need for a Machinima from the trial version?
2.I’ve seen certain videos without voice acting that use original quotes from characters like left 4 dead or Tf2, Do the people that make these get them from sounboards somehow? and even just normal sound effects, are these downloaded or are they recorded with an internal recorder of some sort on their computer?
3.When it comes to crediting people for things you use in your video, do you have to get permission from them bofore you use it or do you just have to include their name in the credits? and lastly I’ve seem in multiple videos people saying they use Sony Vegas pro which from what I’ve seen costs arount $500 so I haven’t a clue how they do. so I was wondering what a good video editing software would be that doestn’t cost an arm and a leg but still has good features like green screen and what not. So if you know or have any personal experiece with Machinimas, please let me know, Thanks!
