    Hello. So I've learned to use the demo smoothing tool to record coolio demo video flythroughs of maps. But for frag videos I've seen some people use them and do crazy flips and spirals with it. Is there some advanced tutorial on the subject? Or are they not using a demo smoother at all..?

    For an example of this, they appear for a moment right here in this video.

    Thanks

    Ok, Anyone who needs to know how to do it in the future while browsing the search function or something: Here's how:
    Requirements
    Either: 3DsMax, After Effects, Blender, or Cinema 4D
    Crafty
    A genuine version of steam

    Import and Export Plugins available here
    http://hhg-clan.de/hlae/download.php

    You basically import the map into a high quality 3d program like 4d cinema, and using crafty you use a plugin to detect camera movements on the xyz, and then import those onto the cinema 4d file, and then render the scene for the new camera angles.

    Haven't tried it out yet, but wanted to bump the thread before it became too old.
    Goodluck!
