Shooting your video: the quick and easy way!

Written by Djoszee.

Did you ever have the feeling your track needed a video? Don’t worry, here is the easiest way to do it!

  • 1.Drive a replay (if you want cool camera’s, use the mediatracker on your outro. Or, see 4b)
  • 2. save the replay
  • 3. go to editor>replay
  • 4a.select the replay you want, click ok
  • 4b. In case you want to add camera’s to your replay, which doesn’t have an outro.

A screen pops up, select ‘edit replay’. Now delete the entire camera block, create a new one and place your own camera’s.
Save your replay, use a different name so you’ll keep the original in case you need it.

  • 5. a screen pops up, select ‘shoot video’
  • 6. it will ask you to make the game window smaller, press alt+enter
  • 7. now you can shoot the video.
  • 8.select resolution 640*480 and 25 fps and press ok
  • 9. a new window pops up, select ‘full frames’
  • 10.the game will record the video and save it to your trackmania drive (like c\program files\tmn\video001.avi)

Now you will need windows movie maker, I hope you have windows XP. Maybe one of your friend can help you, but the avi is probably big (so you need to burn it on a dvd). If you have XP but didn’t install moviemaker, just use google and download it. You can also use a different video editor program, but you’ll have to figure that out yourself…

Now onto Windows moviemaker:

a) open a new project
b) import your video
c) add music if you want.
d) I recommend ‘fade in’ for the first movie clip and the start of the music
e) I recommend ‘fade out’ for the last movie clip and the end of the music.
f) now save the movie to your harddrive:
– Click ‘save to my computer’
– Click ‘High quality video (small)’ (this works best with youtube!)
– Press OK

Now you will have to register on youtube and upload the video.

Here’s an example that was posted on the blog earlier

Good luck!
