^That's the YouTube video referred to in the title.
This is how I did it:
- First, I made a game (super-important)
- Then, I made the music. This was done in FamiTracker.
- This music was then added to the game, but here's the rub: that was not essential.
- Then I used LiceCap to record a GIF of my playing the game.
- I then used Audacity as I watched the GIF to cut the music tracks together - the ones I had previously made in FamiTracker - so that they sync up with the music that was in the game. For example, the death music being placed where I got onto the lava.
- I now have a WAV file made in Audacity and a GIF made with Licecap and I put them in the FFMPEG bin folder. I used FFMPEG to put these two medias together in a WebM.
- The thing that I typed into the FFMPEg console was: "ffmpeg -i music.wav -i image.gif together.webm'. Which isn't so complicated. However, if I were to do it again it is likely that I would add a "-c copy" before my output.
- I was surprised to find that one could upload a WebM for YouTube, but you can and that is what I did.
