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)

    I love this mod but am having a bunch of issues:
    Can you use lip movement during animation?
    Is there a way to loop animation?
    My recordings don't always execute commands and are frequently buggy.

    @player32 yes this is possible,
    1.Set up all of the drivers to be actors and you yourself as an actor.
    2.Record scene setup active and just drive the path you need to be driven with each actor,
    3. Once all recordings are done and you have driven all the paths you would like select scene mode set up and it will play every actors recording simultaneously making it appear as if they are following you. This will take practice and a lot of trial and error. Also when you want more characters in a vehicle just possess near by actor and press Alt F to enter near by vehicle as a passenger.

    @obscenitybush You can not record lip movement for a scene setup. However if you download a mod called menyoo you can make a character speak whilst scene director is playing a scene you have setup. I think the F to speak key is broken or something right now in scene director if it isn't broke try that. look at the bottom it should say it down there somewhere

    @Saberninja710 Download menyoo for lip animation during scenes and the Difference between recording active setup and just normal setup:

    Active Setup: Whilst recording your setup any other recordings for other actors will playback while you record.
    Normal Setup: All actors will remain still and you will record while nothing else is going.

    Do anyone know how or if it's possible to run without Scripthook?

    Will we have to wait for Blade to update Scripthook to use?

    @Zumie_Fiasco Got it, thanks! Can't do anything right now because steam auto updated (I forgot to turn it off like an idiot). If you have a pre-gunrunner version please let me know! I was in the middle of making machinima and now I'm screwed.

    @obscenitybush I was one of the ones who updated without knowing what was going on. There's instructions in the tutorial section of the forums that'll help you revert to the previous version. Along with the Bypass Launcher, you'll be back in no time

    @obscenitybush Can you use lip movement during animation? No
    Is there a way to loop animation? For now, add the same animation multiple times (feature coming in the Edit scene menu, but not completed yet)
