Parqs Recording Tutorial [Come Here if you need help!]
« on: December 05, 2013, 06:53:22 am »
First things First

So basically, a few of you have been asking "how do you record your personal PS3 gameplay + voice" etc… and it's not that simple so I decided to help you out.  :)

-Recording
To record, you will need to buy an "accessory" (as some might call it) for your PS3. This accessory is called a GameCapture otherwise known as an HDPVR.

My top 2 favorite GameCaptures are (Will list the links below) the ElgatoGameCaptureHD (I own) which is very simple and easy to set up and it has a program as shown below. The other is the hauppauge HDPVR, I have never owned it so I can't say much about this one, sorry.


Here are a few ways to obtain them.
¬Your Nearest electronic store may have them in stock.
¬You can order them online from the links I will list below.
¬You can also obtain them cheaper from EBay. (Wont list a link for quality assurance.)

The next thing you will need is some software that can record your voice (From your mic) and the PS3 sound. I personally use an application both for the PC and Mac called Audacity (Example Below). Audacity is a free application that allows you to record the audio from many different devices at once and then export them out as a normal .mp3 for instance file that you may also edit with in the future.


ALSO NOTE: (You have to be willing to spend $100 or More)

Here Comes the Links!

-ElgatoGameCaptureHD

-Hauppauge HDPVR

Audacity

If there is anything I missed out, please inform me and I will try and add it.

THANKS  ;D

Cool guide man, this may come quite handy for those that want to start recording themselves. I personally recommend Elgato too, though I only borrowed a mates recorder for a period.

What about video-editing?

I'm not the best at editing mate, but I was also thinking about that. We probably need several editors for this to continue.

Hey guys I'm new to the site, but I'm 'fairly' experienced at video editing with a smallish youtube channel, if anyone has any questions about basics/getting started I'd be happy to help :)

Glad to have you! You might give an idea of what software you use or recommend people use. I have a very basic (re: not very good) understanding of vegas and after effects but not well enough to produce anything of quality.

I use Sony Vegas Pro 11, haven't delved into after effects yet (tho I probably should!)

My editing ethos would be along the lines of 'less is more', so personally I would say that software comes down to what people feel most comfortable using. That may sound obvious, but what I'm trying to get at, is that software may offer a million bells and whistles, but most effective editing is that which the viewer doesn't even realise has taken place, there can be a tendency to want loads of fancy cuts/transitions, but there's a reason why the most used form in mainstream media is simple cuts.

It works :)

My advice to anyone starting is start simple, and tweak little fancy bits in when you're used to delivering a narrative.

damn that sounded pretentious lol
