Default VideoCaptureMFD
by ash 11-02-2011, 10:20 AM

An upgraded version of VideoCaptureMFD is available for beta testing from the following link:


It works with D3D9Client and can capture frames at full 1920x1080 resolution for playback on HD TV if you like.

A test scenario and the corresponding avi are here:


I've also made a longer film which demonstrates the use of VideoCaptureMFD to produce smooth playing hi-res scenes with several craft moving in a 'choreographed' sequence.
It is encoded in an MPEG-2 container format to allow playing via DLNA on most HD TV sets with that capability.
It is in three sections which can be joined to make a complete movie (just use 'copy' on Windows or 'cat' on linux since its an mpg):


a 1280x720 version is also available which might be more suitable for playback on less powerful computers:



N.B. This version of VideoCaptureMFD does not have any assembler overides active for orbiter 2010 versions. To use it you have to take orbiter out of real-time mode by setting "fixed time steps" in the extra/debugging menu. The fixed time interval must be equivalent to the frame rate of your scenario e.g.

render 25.0 1.0 1 would use a fixed time step of 0.04

render 100.0 4.0 4 would use a fixed time step of 0.01

Both would give a movie playing at 25 frames per second.
