View Full Version : Improving Export Quality from TM
04-18-2009, 07:29 PM
been a little while since I last posted, but since my schooling's been kind of winding down, I'm looking to maybe get back into producing some movies. One of my main deterrents right now is that whenever I export a movie on the highest quality I get a very strange honey-combed look that is far from HQ. I am running the Mac version of the game, but I'm wondering if anyone has any idea on how to change some sort of preference in game that will help this, or are there any alternatives to using the game's exporter. Thanks again.

The delightful Teutonic maid Sisch posted a link to a little prog somewhere on the forums not so long back that enables you to export TM footage at 1280x720 (if I remember correctly); can't put me finger on the exact post it was in, but it was one of the tech help ones done this year (I know it doesn't narrow it down much, unfortunately, but at least it's a starting point!). And I don't know if it'll work on a Mac, but it's gotta be worth a shot if you're having export woes...
Or there's DL's method of capping the footage inside the program using Fraps, if you prefer to try that (also mentioned somewhere).
EDIT: Found it; it's in this thread ere (http://www.tmoaradio.com/vb/showthread.php?p=28175&highlight=export#post28175)....

Thanks for the response, Killian. I located the post where Sisch posted a really nifty little program that boosts the expor quality to that of your monitor. Unfortunately, it's Window's executable file that won't run on my comp. I'm gonna try pursuing some other avenues, but thanks for the speedy response.

So after messing around with my game settings, I think the problem is solved. My screen size option was set to full at 1440 x 900 which was producing an awful honeycomb effect for any quality I chose. Turning the option down a notch to 1152 x 720 solves the honeycomb problem leaving a watchable resolution. Thanks for the speedy response, and it looks like I don't have an excuse now to get working again.

Glad to hear you got it fixed, mate :)
I've been using DL's method as Killain mentioned before and result is here..
1400x820 with 60fps
try it :)

The first thing I tried was using a screen-cap rogram, but I couldn't find one for free, and FRAPS isn't a cross platform application. Thanks again for the response though, AC.
