Looking for a QuickTime to AVI converter? A vistor sent this link which might do the trick!

How it was made: Like the last video, this video was shot with my Sony TRV-900 miniDV camera, but I used AVerMedia's AVerKey300 Gold PC/Mac to TV video convertor and output that via S-video to the camcorder. It was assembled using DigitalOrigin's editDV software on my B&W G3/350 PC. See the System Configuration link in the left pane for links to start up your own editing shop. :-) I used MediaCleaner EZ 3.1 to render the 3 different quality movies. The native DV movie was 96.7MB, each second of miniDV footage is approx. 3.7MB worth of space.

About the downloadable movie: This QuickTime 3 movie is ~1.6MB, running at 7.5fps. This movie was shot while playing the q3test1 online. As with the other demos, demo 3 offers another glance (34:02 seconds to be exact) of Q3TEST played on a B&W G3/350. I'm hoping, along with the rest of you that idSoftware will release the Linux and Windows versions soon, so we can all start 'fraggin one another! ;-p I'm glad I've been able to provide these screenshots and movies for everyone, the feedback has been nothing but positive and the turnout has been amazing. Thanks to all, and I hope you enjoy this demo!

Disclaimer: These movies were put together ONLY for the pure joy of sharing the "feel" of the game with gamers of other platforms who yet don't have a playable TEST version from idSofware yet. Quake 3 is awesome, and they certainly raised the bar ONCE AGAIN for gaming as we know it. I have no affiliation with idSoftware at all, and am only a gaming enthusiast which has been a Quake 2 modder since Q2 was released over a year ago, who came up with a crazy idea to show those users a bit more than a static "screenshot". The credits that take up the first few seconds of the QuickTime movie are only there to tell you what it is (Demo3 of Q3 on a G3) and the author, me, who assembled the footage. Without idSoftware's great TEST version for the Mac I wouldn't of been able to put this together. Kudos to all. Enjoy!
