Making movie, need help

    I'm making another ingame movie, this one will be marketing my site and using games such as Colin McRae Rally 5 and ToCA 2 (providing I can get the framerates up on ToCA). I know that your prolly thinking that there's no possible connection between rally racing and an online community support forum, but you'd be mistaken.

    Anyway, I need help getting media such as the following:

    - Emergency room sound files of virtually any extension.
    - The sound of a heartbeat monitor.
    - The sound of a heartbeat.
    - Video clips of doctors and nurses in the O.R.
    - video clip or still image of someone in traction.

    Any and all help will be much appreciated and anything used in the movie will see your name on the credits if desired.

    My last movie (now a few years old) was a teaser trailer for a gaming community called Wolf Gaming. It was one of my first and had lots of errors but wasn't too bad for my first official try. It also reviewed pretty well at Virtual War Cinemas which encouraged me to continue making game movies. If interested you can dl the teaser here: http://www.lifesupporters.com/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownload&cid=1

    this is a cool product, dont know if this is exactly what your looking for...



    record any movies directly in game, which you can use to get sounds, vids, screenshots etc.

    I do use fraps 2.0 currently and will likely purchase 2.5. You can now record at 60 FPS, I wonder if it will record 5.1 too.

    The thing to remember is that it's recording as you play so it takes one powerful system to run the program. I have a 2.8 P4 533 FSB with 1GB RDRAM and a 9600 PRO 128 MB Radeon and still can only manage 3 FPS @ 1280 x 960. I have to record at 800 x 600 with all settings on low and still max out at 28 FPS.

    I also use Virtual Dub http://www.virtualdub.org/ which is an excellent program for editing, adding effects and converting/compressing video files. Then I put it all together in Windows Movie Maker, time it, add music, add more effects, and then publish.

    Later in the year I'll be replacing the mobo in my other case with another 2.8 P4 or higher processor with dual DDR and record movies via hardware. That will give me maximum resolution and sound without compromising framerates.

    Sorry for the double post but has anyone ever watched ER or some other hospital related TV series? The reason I ask is because I've never seen an episode but I'm willing to bet they have what I'm looking for.

    dont really watch er, i watch law and order every time to time. you should be able to automatically update fraps btw, dont you get free downloads for newer versions if you have purchased it before?

    Um, I never really purchased it if you take my meaning. I did finally crack down and buy it a week or so ago because it's a steal at 29 bux and is forever upgradeable as you said.

    I'm putting together media and have some pretty good footage so far. The limitation I have now is Hard Disk space so I may have to get another Hard Drive.

    I'll be creating a full length and a teaser trailer that I'll post links to here once complete, that is if your interested.
