If you dont want to limit yourself to just your characters viewing angle when taking screenshots and recording the movie there is a mod i wrote for UT3 which lets you view the game from any angle. The plan is to fully integrate that mod into RenX. This is not done yet but i added a testversion to this post that already supports about 80% of the features of the UT3 version.
You first need to record a match in the form of a demo file for this method to work. You can get more information about demos here: http://www.renegade-x.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=3394
Install and getting started instructions for RypelCam:
1.1 : Put the RenX_DemoEnhancements.u into the MyGames/UnrealTournament 3/Renegade/Published/CookedPC folder.
1.2 : Now open the UTGame.ini in MyGames/UnrealTournament 3/Renegade/Config and replace the line DecalManagerClassPath=UTGame.UTDecalManager with DecalManagerClassPath=RenX_DemoEnhancements.RCamDecalmanager
make sure you done this correct or else it wont work...
when you watch demo's after the above step you should see some green text on your screen..if you dont see that green text the above step aint done right..
if you see the green text rypelcam is working correctly...now push f10 to bring down console and type( togglemoviemode ) to remove the hud things and keep the xhair....you can also remove the entire hud if you push the ( h ) key..if you are in cam mode...you can go cam mode with right mousebutton or the ( k ) key.... (it is recommended for you to be in first person view of you character before you go into cam mode)
in cam mode push the pause-key on your keyboad or arrow-down key and notice how you can still fly arround and take screenshots
you can control the speed of the cam with keys 1-9 or with Numpad1/Numpad2 keys
you can also fast forward to where you want in the demo with
this command seekto 10 30 9 ______ 10 is min 30 is sec 9 is the speed you fast forward with...
you can slowdown/speedup the demo with leftarrow/rightarrow
(just watching your player when not in cam mode displays pretty unsmooth movements of your character. This is something we will be working on.)
This might also help to give you an idea about how to use its video recording features: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owA__jCP1Iw
Of course you dont need to use RypelCam to win but it can help to get more impressive shots.
GL to all participants.
