Video methodology: how do I make my videos?

How do I make my videos?

Providing my audience with the highest quality content is of the utmost importance to me. In this blog post, I will explain the steps and reasoning behind my audio production process for the channel’s videos, and how I strive to go above and beyond when producing my videos.

Categorizing My Videos

Firstly, it’s important to note that all of my videos on the Draggie channel fall under one of five categories: 10 HoursSoundtracksStreamsShorts, and Videos. Despite the different types of content, all of these videos share the fact that I make all my content in the best possible quality with no compromise.

By following the steps outlined in this blog post, I am able to ensure that the audio in my videos is of the highest possible quality. This allows my audience to fully immerse themselves in the gaming experience and enjoy the audio to the fullest extent.

Anyway, for more specific detail on categories, check below:

10 Hours

Step 1: Lossless WAVs

The first step in my audio production process is to use Adobe Audition to convert the source file into WAV format. WAV is a lossless audio format, which means that no data is lost during the conversion process. This is important because it ensures that the audio remains of the highest quality and is identical to the original source file. Additionally, I use a 48,000Hz sample rate and 64 bit floating point to ensure the highest level of detail and precision in the audio.

Uncompressed Audio Codec

Once the audio is in WAV format, I then bring it into Premiere Pro and make it 10 hours. I then export it at the source file’s bitrate using an uncompressed audio codec. This is important because an uncompressed audio codec preserves all of the audio information present in the source file, without any loss of quality.

Step 2: Apple ProRes 422 HQ Codec

The video being a black screen and in the Apple ProRes 422 HQ codec is important for a few reasons. Firstly, the black screen with no visual distractions allows the viewer to fully focus on the audio. Secondly, the ProRes codec is a high-quality codec that is used by professional video editors and is known for its high-quality image and colour reproduction. This ensures that the audio is complemented by the highest quality video possible, whenever there is video attached. This codec also ensures that the audio contained within it is uncompressed.

Extra: Extracting Game Audio Directly from Application Files

In addition to these steps, I also write my own scripts to extract game audio directly from the application files. This allows me to capture the audio in its purest form, without any compression or loss of quality. For example, I use my own Python scripts to extract Brawl Stars’ soundtracks as soon as they are released.

Furthermore, I use tools like FModel to extract Fortnite’s assets directly, rather than downloading others’ versions which may be compressed. This ensures that the audio is captured at the highest possible quality. Additionally, I also use these tools to extract audio from other games such as extracting sound effects and music tracks.


Soundtracks are different than regular 10 hours videos as they are non-looped and have a video at the same time too.
