    You too can be a video master...

    When it comes to World of Warcraft movies, few know how to perform the art. Surely you have seen both types of World of Warcraft movies, the good and the bad – you know, the good being those ones that are so well put together and funny that you watch them over and over and over... and those that you do not even make it through the first 30 seconds of. Well, if you want to learn how to make those World of Warcraft movies that people will actually watch, listen up.

    The main thing is to make sure that you have a system that can run both the massive monster that is World of Warcraft and the video recording software that you need to record the video – at the same time. This in itself is a massive feat, as both require a ton of memory and both will drag down any computer. So, you have to make sure that your computer will handle the strain of both programs and that it will not cause any problems in either one. You will also need a lot of extra space on your hard drive for the video that you take. This means that on top of the video recording software and World of Warcraft, you have to have the free space for the video files.

    Now, if you do not have video recording software yet, then you need to grab some. There are actually several places on the web that you can get video software that works well with games, such as on fraps.com or on planetgamecam.com. Both of these sites will have video recording software that you can download that is designed for game video recording. When you have the software, you need to check the instructions on how to use it, and what the developer recommends that you to do get the optimal performance out of it. Make sure that you follow the instructions for recording a video while you are in game.

    Once you have your video recorded, then edit it with the software that you downloaded and set it to any music that your software will allow. There are some better editing and video software out there that is made just for that type of editing, so you may have to search to find some that will help better. Then, once you have your completed video – you can upload it to the web, wherever you choose, and amaze everyone you know with your World of Warcraft video!
