Hello peoples. I'd like to make an offer to the community! I recently posted a .gif I made of my Darth on the forums & people seemed to really like it. So! If anyone would like a .gif of their char....I'd be happy to help make one for you =]

I play on the Begereny Colony, Eldergame on both factions.

• Tenaden - Republic, 55, Guardian, Tank.
• Qϋor-οq'Lepton - Empire, 55, Juggernaut, Tank.
• Borilius - Republic. 55, Commando, Healer.

& a bunch more chars that are all over the place in levels, but those are my mains.

Example of a .gif! This one I made is of Lepton.


So get in touch with me in-game if you'd like to have some .gifs made C: if I'm not online just add me to your FL.

Any chance you could give the details on how to do it here?
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge. There is no fear, there is power. I am the heart of the force. I am the revealing fire of light. I am the mystery of darkness, in balance with chaos and harmony...immortal in the force.

Well it takes many steps, & making .gifs at a viewable resolution without destroying its quality can be tricky. The way I do it is capture the action I'm looking for in-game with a program like FRAPs, then I use Photoshop to convert the frames of the video into hundreds of layers. From there you can edit the layers & save it into a .gif, adjusting for resolution, quality, length, speed of the .gif, etc.

Hmmm, the underlined seems complicated. I'm not on your server, but if I send you my FRAPS (only like 20 seconds worth) is that enough for you to make a .gif? I don't think I'll be able to pull it off.

Yeah for sure, if you want to upload your video clips to Mediafire or something, I could dload them, & then I'll just need you to explain what you'd like your .gif to show.

A few pointers:
• Set FRAPs to record at full quality.
• Alt + Z in-game to toggle the HUD, so none of the aspects get in way of the video.
• If you're going to be in combat, turn off all of the Flytext & Nameplates during the recording.
————————————————————————
You'll notice that in the .gifs I made, there are no HUD aspects or Flytext or Nameplates. You don't ~have to do this, but it looks more like a clip from a cinematic or a movie this way. Your choice!

"Where did my rifle go? Ah, there it is. Pew-pew!"
