The first part was pretty lengthy.

Thank you for your replies.

I have not done much editing to the first 3 videos, besides adding the intro, as they had already been released. But starting with episode 4 I am cutting things out, speeding repetitive parts up, and, as a result, shortening the length. You can see my latest episode here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPYkSjimA9o

For editing I will be using Lightworks, as I can do a lot with this program, if I can just get it to work with the videos I cast so far! I also have Shotcut and Hitfilm Express on standby. Frame Rates are going up with any new episodes I do, as I have a better capture program. The problem is there are 18 episodes already done, pretty much wrapping up season 1, but we will see after editing.

not too bad but i do recommend getting adobe after effects for editing. aswell as tweak the obs studio a bit to give you the best overall stuff. maybe at more ram to your game :) there is a alpha version of optifine for 1.13 that i do recommend you use :) anywhoo its not too bad would be alot better with smoother fps :)

Another update...

Lightworks has a MAJOR flaw! It can not work with a variable frame rate. So the only way to use Lightworks is to:
1. Capture your gameplay footage.
2. Convert it to a constant frame rate.
3. Import it into Lightworks for editing.
4. Export it, which will transcode it AGAIN.

Lightworks SHOULD work with FRAPS or any capture software that uses a constant frame rate. But FBX, the program I used to capture the last 16 episodes, fails.

Shotcut has no isse with variable frame rate, in my experience so far.

Turns out that while FRAPS is the best recorder to give you top framerates in Minecraft, importing into Lightworks can be problematic. I have a larger file, and all Lightworks does is grind and delay - it never loads properly. So I guess Lightworks is crap, unless you can find a recorder as good as FRAPS that is 100% compatible with Lightworks (meaning no variable bit rate.)

I have begun the editing process, and have completed two episodes from what I have cast so far. I have scrapped one episode. I have opted for a fast forward style with an effect to separate it from the main video through any repetitive or tedious parts. These segments are also silent. This is the best I can do with what I have now.

Later videos will be done differently, will have greater render distance and be running at a very steady 20fps. I will use cut/transitions and fast forward. Using BDoubleO's work as an example to follow. I mean he has a million subscribers and hundreds of thousands of views so he has to be doing something right! I will learn from his process, but will not copy him or his style. I have to be myself after all!

One final note... I may have been a little harsh with Lightworks, so I may re-install and try it again. Shotcut is doing what I need, but it crashes A LOT. Very frustrating. I guess that's the price you pay for something without a price tag...

Still would like feedback on my intro. Good? Bad? Ugly?

Thanks!

As TomConn said.
- Your fps is awful, you want at least 60 while recording
- Play fullscreen when recording
- Turn the master volume down a lot, the sounds of leaves breaking and blocks breaking is far too loud
- You need to edit out A LOT, watching someone play in real time is incredibly boring. If you've ever watched some bigger youtubers, for example the hermitcraft guys. They'll edit days worth of footage into 30 mins. So they actually get lots done in one episode. In that one episode you've linked here you literally built a bit of wall for a house in 32 minutes.

Sorry for the harsh criticism.

Well if I had anything other than than a quad core i3 with integrated HD 3000 video, I would record at least at a stable 30fps. Doin' the best I can with what I have.

I am now recording full screen. I figured this may be a problem.

I caught the audio issues as well. Started using a compressor on the audio of my older videos, the new ones have the in-game audio adjusted.

Your last point troubles me... On the one hand I wanted to do real-time, you are there with me doing these things. On the other hand I see your point... If I was doing a video tutorial on how to build something I would have to pause, do some repetitive task, then resume. Or fast-forward.

Gonna have to sit with this one for a bit. I have a lot of material already recorded, I could edit it and cut it down, but it will change the intention and spirit of the series. You know, the viewer comes in and I say, "Remember that castle I said I was gonna build? Well here it is!"

I thought part of the draw would be putting the viewer in the trenches with me, through every death, build, discovery, etc. But maybe the viewers don't want that?

OK, gonna think on this. No need to be sorry for the harsh criticism. I asked for opinions, and you gave yours. Much appreciated!

2 things:

1: Try to install optifine because right now the FPS in your videos are... Bad let's just say that.
2: Try to isolate the minecraft so that it's the only thing visible. Right now in your video we can see that you have Blender, Unity, you use a Windows 7 system and it was 11:55AM when you started recording.

That's all otherwise fine videos you make :)

Hey thanks for your reply! Optifine, as far as I know (I will double check) is not ready for 1.13 yet. Also I am now recording in full screen.
