video proof for submitting speedruns questions
« on: March 01, 2015, 06:25:17 PM »
Alright, so I'm speedrunning mm3d, right? So I have a question; usually, you need video proff to submit a speedrun. I don't have a capture card to record with. I have a phone. I have tried proping up the phone on my desk over the side of the desk, and several things, however, it is uncomfortable, and distracting to me, and that means I do worse. How should I show video proof... While it is effective, and comfortable, and feels like a normal speedup?

Only Ben is the answer, for he is eternal, as is the water he drowned in.

I have run into the same problem, and although I have gotten used to having my phone in an uncomfortable position, I have thought of a solution to your problem. The next best thing to video is a picture, right? So let's say that every, let's say 5 minutes, during the run, you take a picture of what is going on at that moment in your run. Then, you could compile all of the pictures into a slideshow of sorts, which you in turn upload as a video. BOOM. "Video proof" Get!

???? Sorry but anyone could take pictures, say that their run is 20 minutes and it could actually be 10 hours. Videos are not required for submitting a run. However, a slideshow of photos is in no way proof of a time.

Really if you want video proof, you either gotta get a capture board, or make yourself some kind of rig that lets you record off-screen and play at the same time.

The guys over in OoT3D have a thread talking about their setups, check it out if you want ideas/inspiration:
