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)

    Hi. This has been a great mod for me to use for making machinimas and assorted projects. However I have been having one main issue with this mod - which is how it loads Online player models' teef models - this is especially true when switching between actors in a scene. I'd like to know if you are aware of this issue and have figured out a way to get around this. Thanks
