I'm making another music video after a long break, and this time it's BF:BC2. I was thinking of a different kind of a song, and I got this idea of using Radiohead's music. Currently I'm thinking of using "Street Spirit". 
Could turn out pretty cool if done properly (unfortunately my framerates haven't been helping)
 So should I use that or do you have a better suggestion? (other artists are also alright, but would prefer Radiohead for this one)
 
PS: I've just started the campaign, so it'll be a while before the video is out.
 
 

EDIT: Ok I kinda tried it out with Street Spirit and am pretty much bent on doing it with that only. Also, am doing two special ones on the songs suggested by Abyssful and eroticfishcake (The Thrashmen - Surfinbird and Shalamar - A night to remember :P)
 
Anyways, thanks to everyone for their suggestions, I'll be playing MoH after this, so those songs I didn't use for this can be used for that too. 
I'll let you know when the vids are done!

Bodies by Drowning Pool. I don't think anyone has ever used that song before for a montage music video.

Wait a minute. 
So you won't be using this one, like so many others?! :O 
that's sad, because I like that track and it's the song that plays when my alarm goes off at morning

@armaan8014:  
Hey man I have a project to start rewriting music for youtube montage videos like this. 
  
   
Problem is in this state I can't separate the game sounds(FX) from the music track it is synced to. When you have finished the project can I ask for a version without the music already synced to it.
 
I started a blog a while back on the subject.

The best song.
 
And if this thread was about MW2 highlight videos, it would have been trolled to death already. Just sayin'.

 @ZeForgotten:
I thought you were gonna link me to a Linkin Park video. 
@Abyssfull:
You know, if you really want to see that song being used, I might just make an extra one just for you! Wadya say?

Oh another thing, it's clips from the single player campaign that i'll be using, not multiplayer. So it's lesser gameplay and more cutscenes basically.

@X19:  What exactly do you need me to do? Separate the complete audio or only the music?

@armaan8014: Sorry I wasn't clear. 
 
I don't want added music or game music all I want are the game FX(gun shots,explosions etc). 
 
Are you editing just SP campaign or some MP footage as well. I ask this because the multiplayer is like a blank canvas to write music on because it doesn't really relate to anything. If you are taking lots of kill edits then I just have to write something that hits all those points. The SP music on the other hand has to be more focused on conveying what's actually going on in the video footage. 
 
I don't mind either way just let me know what kind of thing you are going to edit. Basically is it going to be like a trailer for the SP, a multiplayer kill video or both.

@armaan8014: No way, Linkin Parks music is waaaay to slow and boring for videos filled with action and shooting of the same 3 character designs over and over again.

@eroticfishcake: I will!! I'll make TWO vids now. One just for you!
@X19:
I'm actually making a video for the SP campaign, mostly cutscenes and stuff. I can record a few minutes of MP if you want, tell me what FX you specifically want. (or should I just play normally?)

@Abyssfull: @eroticfishcake:  Ok so one weird video for you and one for you. This is what happens when you ask GB for advice :P
But seriously, I'll do it. Along with one with street spirit.

@armaan8014:   

  • So will your project be less of you playing the game and more of editing the existing cutscenes in to something new?  
  • When you're recording the game do you play with the music and game FX on or just the game FX? 
  • In your own project are you muting the sound from the game completely and just having the soundtrack playing? 
 
I don't mind doing a video for the SP campaign as long as I get the game FX in there too.  
  
 Would be great to have a MP video as well but only if you have the time. Just play normally as I just want some practice hitting sync points. Only specifics are keep it under a minute and get some sniper shots in with the reload animation. I only say the sniper thing because they are a one shot which makes them easy to sync musical hits to. 
 
Thanks for helping me out I appreciate it.

  • yeah
  • I play the game normally and record, just set Fraps to not record sound
  • Yeah, it'll just be the song.
No problem! Since I've been playing a lot of BF:BC2 suddenly (MP as well) I can record a one minute scene for you. And is only the FX important or should I actually make kills in the video too?
#42 Posted by X19 (2306 posts) -
@armaan8014: Yeh definitely get some kills in. Got to keep it exciting for the punters lol

Obnoxious 'heavy metal' music.. right. you could say that about anything, couldnt you ? "Whats wrong with adding an obnoxious mellow indie shit song from Radiohead or The Black Keys (or whatever they're called) ? Whats wrong with adding boring ass post-grunge rock like Nickelback or Queens of the Stone Age? Whats wrong with adding another pointless rap tune WITH A SICK BEAT ?"  yeah..

Yes, yes it was.  
I haven't actually seen it in any type of video like that ever. 
Only thing I heard it used for is LiveOnThree...

@drag:  if u cant see the point, you're blind :P it's a pretty simple point. 
  And i can take a joke. i can take a joke so much it's ridiculous.. doesnt mean i cant discuss the idea/point of view behind the joke.  it's something the big boys do, you know, 'think', you dont have to do it. just take the joke without thinking about it's content :)
