Suggesting you need 200-400 gigs is ridiculous, though. I've filmed plenty of things, some as long as 30 mins, and my hard drive is only 80 gigs (and I didn't compress as I went).
Based off of the title of the thread,
making a full game kotor video
I got the impression that he is intending on filming the entire game. I would say its at minimum a 25 hour game. Tell me how on earth you would fit 25 hours of video on a 80gig hard drive?
