Amiga recordings

Recommended Posts

The avi file is created and there is sound, but there is no picture.

I think I might know what the problem is. On a laptop I had TSCC codec installed and tried to record GBA videos using VBA emulator, but used to get an error message pop up. So I installed camtasia studio and was then able to record. Just tried to record an Amiga video using winUAE and was successful in recording. (on the laptop)

The problem I am having is that I am using my desktop PC now, with only the TSCC codec installed (not camtasia studio). So does camtasia need to be installed?

AFAIK to have to install Camtasia in order to encode TSCC. BUt to decode it you can just install a TSCC decoder.

Great stuff Blazer! :D

Can I ask a big favor?

Can you convert the # - A TSCC.avi's to avi (xvid or something simliar)?

May I ask why? #-A isn't complete, and I haven't investigated what the best process how to encode to xvid is yet.

Oh batch processing is by far the best. :D *ducks*

Okay I'm way sucky at batch scripts...but figured I'd give this a go for giggles...I'm sure there are issues that some pro batch scripter will point out. :)

Anyways using Avidemux with some of the info from here I've put together a batch script that creates an Xvid AVI and a standard MP4...I have yet to look into FLV which I know is also supported by Avidemux.

// AVI - Xvid

////////////////

avidemux2_cli.exe

--nogui

--load input.avi

--audio-codec MP3

--audio-resample 44100

--audio-bitrate 224

--video-codec Xvid4

--video-conf cq=4

--output-format AVI

--save output.avi

--quit

// MP4

////////////////

avidemux2_cli.exe

--nogui

--load input.avi

--audio-codec AAC

--audio-resample 44100

--audio-bitrate 224

--video-codec x264

--video-conf cq=26

--output-format MP4

--save output.mp4

--quit

// FLV

////////////////

avidemux2_cli.exe

--nogui

--load input.avi

--audio-codec MP3

--audio-resample 44100

--audio-bitrate 224

--video-codec FLV1

--video-conf cbr=1500

--output-format FLV

--save output.flv

--quit

## Batch Script ##

@echo off
set Old_Dir=C:\Video
set AVI_Dir=%old_dir%\AVI
set FLV_Dir=%old_dir%\FLV
set MP4_Dir=%old_dir%\MP4
set Run_App=C:\Program Files\Avidemux 2.5\avidemux2_cli.exe

if NOT exist "%AVI_Dir%" ( mkdir "%AVI_Dir%" )
if NOT exist "%FLV_Dir%" ( mkdir "%FLV_Dir%" )
if NOT exist "%MP4_Dir%" ( mkdir "%MP4_Dir%" )

for %%a in ("%old_dir%\*.avi") do (
echo Converting: %%a to FLV
"%Run_App%" --nogui --load "%%a" --audio-codec MP3 --audio-resample 44100 --audio-bitrate 224 --video-codec FLV1 --video-conf cbr=1500 --output-format FLV --save "%FLV_Dir%\%%~na.flv" --quit
echo Converting: %%a to AVI
"%Run_App%" --nogui --load "%%a" --audio-codec MP3 --audio-resample 44100 --audio-bitrate 224 --video-codec Xvid4 --video-conf cq=4 --output-format AVI --save "%AVI_Dir%\%%~na.avi" --quit
echo Converting: %%a to MP4
"%Run_App%" --nogui --load "%%a" --audio-codec AAC --audio-resample 44100 --audio-bitrate 224 --video-codec x264 --video-conf cq=26 --output-format MP4 --save "%MP4_Dir%\%%~na.mp4" --quit
:: echo Converting: %%a to AVI
:: "%Run_App%" --nogui --load "%MP4_Dir%\%%~na.mp4" --output-format AVI --save "%AVI_Dir%\%%~na.avi" --quit --force-alt-h264
:: echo Converting: %%a to AVI
:: "%Run_App%" --nogui --load "%FLV_Dir%\%%~na.flv" --output-format AVI --save "%AVI_Dir%\%%~na.avi" --quit
)

Update 1:

Added commented out Alt AVI creation...basically takes the MP4 streams and pulls them out of the MP4 container and stuffs them into an AVI container. Makes for a smaller better sounding AVI. :)

To use uncomment then comment out the original Xvid AVI creation....really only need one after all.

Update 2:

Added FLV conversion...let me know of any issues.

Update 3:

Fixed some of my noticeable scripting errors. :)

Update 4:

Added stuffing FLV streams into an AVI container...also commented out.

FLV is no probem as Adobe's Flash converter does batches. The thing is that I've had problems with two-pass encoding with xvid lately with crashes, but I haven't spent many minutes on this yet, since I'll do the xvids when all the vids are done.

Well I certainly can look into two pass Xvid...but I'm really hoping to nudge folks in the direction of MP4 encodes. :D

bLAZER are you planning on doing videos for the full killergorrila set? as i have started doing all the wheel and box art for these aswell and plan to do the full set, should have some examples up on the hyperspin site soon. Amiga seems to be overlooked a lot so i reckon if your doing the videos and i can get the artwork finished then i think it will look pretty dam special. Obviously its gunna take me a while as im a bit fussy and mostly re-drawing from scratch.

Hi there, yes I'm planning to do the whoel set. Takes a while though... That's excellenent that you're doing wheels and boxart. Let me know when you have something to show... and it's great that you're a perfectionist like myself :starwars: I could help out with some wheel arts if you could supply me with some boxart if you want to. I need a break from the video recording...

FYI - There is a thread on HS with respect to the Amiga CD32 console Boxart and wheels. I have done A-F already but feel free to contribute. If you're planning on doing the PC version of things then please start a new thread as I am not doing that project.

Cheers

I haven't planned any CD32-stuff so it's all good. PC version? You mean the Amiga I guess...? I guess most wheels (boxart logos) are the same for CD32 and Amiga though, so probably no need that we do those also.

The BA is labeled differently for the console vs the amiga comp. so i'll continue with the console ver and everyone is welcome to use them as they see fit. I'll keep the thread on the HS forum updated regularly.

I will have a look at some of the artwork and if any CD32 artwork matches that of the standard Amiga then i could incorporate it as you say and vice versa. each System version of the same game has different wheel and box art as u say so i may just end up redoing all the standard Amiga WHD Loader set though i have incorpared a few from Espontaneo WHDLoader set as he had done about 150 images and box art though alot of these i have touched up or redrawn unfortunately there is loads of games as you know so it will take a while as only getting about 100 images a week done.

bLAZER if you can get on hyperspin ftp (which is a nighmare at the mo) there is some amiga box art with over a 1000 box art so i am using those for my scource at the mo if not i can try zip them up and get them to ya. should get some examples up over weekend. Im currently headind towards the 400 mark so making reasonable progress including the ones from Espontaneo .

I don't have access to Hypespin FTP. And like you said, I read that it's a nightmare to get on anyways, would be good if you could put them up elsewhere when you have the time.

Those 600 are on the ftp here. Started in December... so it will take several more months do them all... I'm having a break right now doing other stuff though.

I understand that, it's alot to just keep doing every day without ever taking a break, real life will only be put off for so long before it starts screamin at you to get off of the computer :P
