From april 4th to early June, my cousin and I edited, assembled, and finalized the video.
Battlefield 2 has a "recorder" feature, where one can play (act) a normal game, and then you can view a replay of it, which has a few different options. One option that does not exist is rewinding, so if you miss the part that you wanted to record with a third-party recorder (FRAPS), you had to reload the entire replay and "catch up" to the part that you missed. Using the free version of FRAPS, we recorded over the replay.
Each clip was carefully cropped and replaced with the slide-show version, and Windows XP's Movie Maker was used originally. Because Movie Maker is a very low quality editor, it constantly crashed - so we constantly saved - and it limited the amount of seperate clips before rendering. So, we split the movie into three parts, rendered each seperately, and finally moved to Adobe Premier Elements 3.0.
In adobe, we imported all three parts and adjusted image settings, ect.
