My question is how do you shorten the demo in order to successfully upload it and not bore admins to death.
Yes - it's a good idea to keep demos short. But don't worry too much about it.
It is a good idea (and especially for longer demos) to always write down at what moment you think the cheat happens within the demo. As there is no clock running , you can use the red score instead and say something in the description of the demo like: "There is a clear wallhack at red score 4567"
Does this really help our poor admins (and other demo viewers), you may wonder.
Well yes, as they can use the "/timescale x" command to speed up the demo till they reach the indicated score.
So /timescale 8 will speed the demo up by a factor 8.
And now we are on it: /timescale 0.5 plays it at half speed, which may help to see a specific cheat a bit more clearly.
Don't overdo it: at speed 0.3 everything starts to look like cheating.

There is also no such thing as invisibility hack. A player disappears when he is out of range of the camera if you follow him through air. Zoom out enough and all players will disappear when they get out of range.
It sounds like you were 'flying around' when recording the events. This is fine, but has it's limitations (as said by Mazfer).
For a convincing cheat demo always follow a single user. And in first person, not seen at the back (what you get after pressing CTRL), as the wallhack effect is not clear in that way. (Sorry if this is all superfluous information to you).
Anyway - I am still interested in seeing your demo/recording !
Update- I've just tried to play the demo and It won't play after all that- maybe because I was flying, I have another demo recorded later of him being an abusive sexist twat but that's not really a ban offense- i'll get him next time.
