The simplest process...

Fly Mission

Save Track

Play Track in a 640X480 Window at 1/2 Speed

Select "No-Cockpit, No-Gunsight" Option/View
Capture using Fraps set at 15FPS

Open Fraps *.AVI file in VirtualDub

Use VD filters to greyscale(or De-Saturate the colors); crop; blur(or smooth)

Render/Save the output as a DivX compressed *.AVI file/movie, at 30FPS for full speed clip; 8 or 15FPS for Slow-Motion clip.

[This will be a final AVI guncam movie, or you can run it through Windows Movie Maker for additional "aging" effects, then render/Save as a *.wmv movie.]

For animated Gif format, open the AVI file in an animation program, such as PaintShopPro JASC Animation application.

Add scratches or camera shake,etc

Render/Save the output in *.Gif format.

Fraps, VirtualDub are available in freeware versons.

For more details and an alternative more complex procedure, visit my Website(see my Sigblock below) and on the Homepage follow the "GunCam Tutorial" link in the Navigation menu on the Left hand side.

It's always a pleasure being able to watch the action afterwards.

A minor gripe is that whatever track files you make are rendered unplayable with each patch that comes out (tracks made in version 3.03 are not playable under version 3.04, for example).

But it's so easy to make them that I don't mind losing the unplayable tracks and I do not feel the urge to show them here (everybody can make them it's that much of a doddle to do).

Best method of recording beyond track files is to hook up your pc (equipped with video card having the necessary out and/or inputs) to a vcr (or even better a DVD recorder). The problem with guncam software is that it has to share computing power with the game (playing the track files).

The way I get around the problem of shared resources when capturing video is I record everything in slow motion and then speed up the final cut in video software. That way and lost frames usually arnt noticed and you can keep the final cut slow and smooth.

The only downside is recording can take a long time and captured files/frames can be friggen huge.

My first serious guncam footage. Here's a kill from GreaterGreen the other night. Victim was CHMQ_Popo, the tool of choice, the pneumatic hammer (Mk108) of a Bf109G6 Late.

I'm working on getting the size of file down as per advice above, sorry for the size http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Usually you can cull(delete)every other frame, then reduce your framerate by half...that will usually cut your file size by maybe half while not effecting the "look" of your final animated gif guncam movie

A very good first Guncam Clip!

I try to avoid showing frames in which the Large black "popcorn" debris(unique to FB/PF) shows; that doesn't look like real WWII guncam debris/footage. Simply deleting the specific frames with those large black chunks improves the final movie, and it will be totally unnoticeable that you have cut the frame(s)..

Here is a compilation of GC footage(European theater) which I like...3.5Mb (http://pauke.ee.ethz.ch:8732/oberstguncam/Frameset/../fbguncamclips/Wallachstein2.WMV)

Not that I'm aware of, but I'm sure there's some open source out there somewhere. Have a look here (http://www.imagespro.com/programs/gifanim/)
