Can AGS be used to make videos?
« on: 01 Jul 2020, 08:00 »
I mean if it can export the game (as it runs in the engine) as a video file, such as mp4 or other which can be then uploaded to youtube :)

I think I would be very interested in using it in this way as well, if possible...

If it is an actual game, you can export as a walkthrough video, and if it is running without needing player input it can be used for a short animated film.

[EDIT] Kinda. I've created a few music videos over the past few years - but had to use external screengrabbing software.

No. But you could use any screen capture software and record how you play the game.

Oh yeah, my bad, should've specified that these are screengrabs - made with Bandicam - and not a video file generated by AGS itself. Still, fairly easy to do - if plagued the technical difficulties stemming from overloading the CPU and memory by the screengrabbing software (at least on older specs, like my computer at the time)
