If you’ve been reading over the past week or so, you know that I’ve been playing around with FRAPS and video capture. Actually, it’s been more than that really. Over the past week I think it’s safe to say that I’ve become mildly obsessed with it. Truth be told, I’m pretty much having a blast – running around recording things, playing around with the features in the video editor, picking out music that is YouTube friendly. It’s fun learning how to do something new, and with each clip I take and edit, I learn new tricks.
Anyhow, I’m going to be taking video of a lot of our encounters moving forward. I’m having a ridiculous amount of fun with it (who knew?!) and we thought it would be cool to post the videos for everyone to see through a link on the front page of the guild website, both for our members and for potential recruits.
Of course, since I’m the one FRAPSing the videos, they will all be from a Resto Druid perspective. Which sort of brings me to the point of this post – are these videos something that you’d be interesting in having posted here regularly as I create them? I think they might be useful and/or interesting for people, while we aren’t on the bleeding edge of progression, we are fairly well progressed so most of the videos should be somewhat timely with many people’s progression - but I don’t want to flood everyone’s feeds with Resto Druid videos if you guys aren’t particularly interested in seeing them.
Which brings me to my next set of questions!
- Are videos something you would be interested in seeing here regularly?
- Would you be interested in “commentated” videos, where I walk through healing the encounter?
- Would you be interested in videos outside of raids, such as “setting up Power Auras”, etc?
- If you are interested in videos, what other kinds of things would you be interested in seeing?
I’d love to know your thoughts on this and hear your feedback! While we discuss, I hope you enjoy the Normal Mode Nefarian 25 Video that I took on Sunday Night – note that it is best viewed in either the 720 or 1080 settings on YouTube. (I will probably be doing some capture of heroics this week – I needed a “test” run of how my capture set up would work in a high graphics raid setting before I tried it on heroics!).
