Scene Director 3.3

Scene director 3.3 release by elsewhat

Scene Director is a mod for GTA V specifically aimed at recording Machinima.
In many ways its an extension to Director Mode and Rockstar Editor.

It has already been used by some of the most profiled GTA V Machinima videos.

Synchronized animations are the major new feature of version 3.3.
460 synchronized animations have been added and more will come in future releases.
This will really improve the realism for GTA V Machinima videos.

Action types which are currently recorded are:
- On foot movement
- In vehicle movement (cars, helis, boats, planes++)
- Entering vehicle (including as a passenger with ALT+F)
- Exit vehicle
- Play synchronized animation (ALT+NUM1-9)
- Play animation sequence (ALT+NUM1-9)
- Play scenario from other mod (such as scenario menu)
- Gun fire recording!
- Cover
- Jumping
- Climb
- Rocket vehicle (voltic2)

    Good job.

    Only Actor 1 and Actor 2 use synchronized animations, but I need other actors (5 and 6) to use them, how do I do it?

    Another doubt. How do I make a solo animation never stop?

    Sorry for my bad english. Im from Spain.

    @nguyengiang160692 I had to downgrade to make it work until Elsewhat fixes the pb in 3.3. I'm now using scene director 3.2. Here's the link https://github.com/elsewhat/gtav-mod-scene-director/tree/master/mod_releases/3.2

    Can you add a setting that allows us to control the frequency of recording key frames? I think there already might be this setting in the options, but it does not work. More key frames = smoother paths.

    Absolutely an essential mod - couldn't make my video series without it.
    But how do I change the controls, for end scene/animations?
    Default is Alt+R
    Which I don't understand, since R is melee attack ... I'm always knocking out close actors and pedestrians - it's real irritating having to reset the entire scene, Especially when there's blood.
    Please change this.
