I have a demo file created with
record ... and I wish to convert it to a movie.
I can render as numerous TGA files. I have downloaded and installed latest version of QuickTime Player and rebooted the machine.
In Team Fortress 2 in Windowed mode, I then use the following steps:
startmovie e1 h264(reports that frames will be captured after clearing the console)
playdemo demo(plays the demo)
endmovie(closes the movie)
Nothing named along
e1 is now present in the steam folder next to the demo.
From https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Demo_Video_Creation I understand there should be a codec window somewhere, which I do not see. The documentation for this feature seems to be rather weak and I might have been looking at outdated information.
Platform is Windows 7 x86. What should I try next?
