Quality Recording/Rendering settings for youtube (specifically video game movies)
 
Download and install Lagarith Losless Codec, Fraps non-trial, Virtual Dub, Sony Vegas 11 Pro, Adobe After Effects CS5, and the motion-blur plug-in for after effects (ReelSmart Motion Blur - should be 4.0.4)  It will take a while to get all of that set up properly.
 
Record in fraps (not trial version) 1920x1080 at 30 fps (youtube caps fps at 30) - but you can record at something ridiculous like 240fps, and slow down the clips in vegas (process takes way longer, just do it how i do it!)
 
Open Virtual Dub, cut clips as close as you can and Click Video>Compression>Lagarith... then save your clips in the same folder (on a non-ssd drive)
 
Open Sony Vegas and import all of your clips. Make a preset crop setting to 1920x1072 (and the project settings) and apply that to all clips. Right click each clip and disable resample. Do your colors, audio, etc. Render as an uncompressed .avi  (check to see that lagarith is still the codec - it shouldn't change though)
 
Now open Adobe AE and import your video. Make sure 10 minutes or less as you have to have special access to record over 10 minutes, and also make sure it's a little bit less than 2 gigs. Anyway, apply RSMB (this will require testing to see what works and doesn't), but the general settings at 0.70 x 60ish are good. The blur can fuck up with huds/text/TONS of motion on the screen though, so each individual clip may vary. That's where the headaches start.
 
Render your video render as .f4v( flash) and you won't lose quality uploading to youtube. Depending on the length of the video, you can adjust the mbps (quality) accordingly. For a 9:59 video I used 27 mbps and it worked out fine. For 5 minutes or so try 40 mbps, but 30 is a perfectly fine average with great quality.
 
You will run into problems so just hit me up with whatever part you're stuck on...good luck!
 
ALSO: The blur is VERY sensitive to too many huds, so there is a plugin for sony vegas where you can add blur to each individual clip, as opposed to adding the same amount of blur for the entire video in after effects. It definitely takes some time to mess around with.

When in Sony Vegas use the Video FX of Color Corrector, Color Corrector Secondary, Soft Contrast, Sharpen.. mess with the settings or just use a preset that works.
 

I'll edit if I can think of anything else.

you can also just skip the sony vegas/AE parts and just use Movie Maker with a Youtube Preset.

Usually if i'm recording with Ultra High at 1080p i will get 30fps (what i set it to). soo its getting used to but I sometimes record at low at 60fps which is what i like. and file sizes are huge.. its around 4gigs for 1:30mins of film. Realize this is before you change the file format, etc. a finished video will be around 1-2gigs or should be.

That will bring your drive to a halt after 3 games if you leave it constant. A whole map, assuming 25 minutes at 1080p at about 4gigs every 1:30min is about 65-70 gigs. I've heard that Bandicam is better than FRAPS for recording but I haven't tried it so idk and don't think file sizes would differ since it's the same thing. The codec might vary the overall result by a little, but in general you need like a nice 1TB HDD for recordings and stuff, especially if you want to archive them and not delete them. I would just wait for the Demo feature to be released OR, do what I do and stream.

IF you want to skip the After Effects process entirely, install the RMSB plugin for Vegas and apply it to your clips, then render as .mp4 (file size/mbps will vary depending on the length/size, etc.). Saves some time and still looks good.

Gosh, it would only cost you ~$1,200 to make that video legitimately to be put on youtube (with SICK DUBSTEP WUBWUBWUBWUBUB BRO DID YOU HEAR THAT DROP BRO BROOOOOO) and forgotten in a week. The wonders of adobe and sony!

Well i have 50GB free on the drive but would be annoying having to keep dropping every few maps to move the clips to my NAS which would probably take ages.
