Re-render when game is paused

Recommended Posts

gxj826

Hi,

 

I am looking for ways to capture screenshots from multiple camera at once. I use scripthookdotnet and use Game.Pause(true) to pause the game, and then cycle through the script cameras to take screenshot. However, when Game is in a paused state, when I switch active rendering camera, the screen is not re-rendering, thus all screenshots give the same image which is the screen prior to game pause.

Game.Pause(true);foreach (var camera in cameras) {  // each camera has different configuration/angle  World.RenderingCamera = camera;  Function.Call(Hash.RENDER_SCRIPT_CAMS, true, false, 0, true, true);  Script.Wait(0);  // capture screenshot, doesn't work}Game.Pause(false);

If I unpause the game each time before switching the rendering camera, and have the game advance one frame, then screenshots work fine

Game.Pause(true);foreach (var camera in cameras) {  Game.Pause(false);  World.RenderingCamera = camera;  Function.Call(Hash.RENDER_SCRIPT_CAMS, true, false, 0, true, true);  Script.Wait(0); // game advances one tick  Game.Pause(true);   // capture screenshot, works as expected}Game.Pause(false);

But the problem is different cameras capture screenshot of different times of game with 1 tick between each capture. Is there a way to have the game re-render without advancing so I can do a "simultaneous" screenshot capture?

 

Thanks!

//render local scene


var lastPos = Vector3.Subtract(_mainCamera.Position, _previousPos);

Function.Call(Hash._SET_FOCUS_AREA, _mainCamera.Position.X, _mainCamera.Position.Y, _mainCamera.Position.Z, lastPos.X, lastPos.Y, lastPos.Z);//can use 0,0,0 for last 3 arguments also // don't know the difference though

_previousPos = _mainCamera.Position;


I use this code to re-render / set focus for different cameras.


I hope this helps

Hi @gxj826,

 

I am also trying something along the lines. Were you able to do it? Did you find any work around for it?

Hi,

 

Nevermind. I figured it out.

Hi,

 

Nevermind. I figured it out.

 

Then why not share the solution to help others? Especially when people have the same problem, like here. If a question goes unanswered, then it's very likely that people just aren't aware of a solution. So that means you very possibly have something new, that people can benefit from.

 

The whole point of a modding "community", is we learn and we share, so that more people can create.
