I’ve got a bit of a problem with the source recorder. I’ve recently recorded several demo files and I want to record them to avi. Traditionally all I’ve ever done was type “startmovie moviename avi” into the console, a window would pop up and ask me for the compression, I’d chose one and then I’d get an avi file.
The problem I’ve been having recently is when I type in “startmovie moviename avi” the video compression window doesn’t come up. All that appears in the console is this:
startmovie moviename avi Started recording movie, frames will record after console is cleared...
When in game the audio still skips as if it was recording but when I end it and check the output folder there’s nothing there. The long method which spits out frames and an audio file still works but I never use it as it eats up about 4 GB a minute of video for me and I just don’t have the harddrive space or the heart to reduce the quality.
Strange thing is, I’m getting this problem across all my source games I’ve tried gmod, and left 4 dead 1 & 2 and they’ve all behaved the same way.
Oh and of course I’ve been running the game in window mode (not full screen).
