Suggested Features for Director Mode/Rockstar Editor

Recommended Posts


Next Rockstar Submission Date: 10/4/2018 (Subject to Change)

Last Submitted: 7/4/2018 @ 3:20 PM EST


Many people in the GTA V Community use Director Mode and the Rockstar Editor. But, many of us feel that Director Mode lacks many features that would inspire more people to create videos using it. In this thread, you will find a list of features that the community has suggested to be added onto the GTA V Director Mode. Feel free to reply to this thread with your own suggestions and I will add them to the list.


This thread contains suggestions from: GTAForums, YouTube, Se7enSins, Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, Rockstar Social Club, as well as many different clubs from Xbox.


This list is submitted to Rockstar periodically so that they may consider the suggestions that the community has offered.


This list used to be sent to Rockstar on a monthly basis, but due to the fact that people using Director Mode/Rockstar Editor has declined in the past months, this list is only sent to Rockstar Games once every 3-5 months now.







  • The ability to spawn and customize vehicles.
  •  Able to access all cars and vehicles AFTER the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2 Update (Freemode Events, Lowriders, Halloween Surprise, Executives and other Criminals, Festive Surprise 2015, Drop Zone, Be My Valentine, Lowriders: Custom Classics, Finance and Felony, Cunning Stunts, Stunt Race Creator, Bikers, Halloween 2016, Import/Export, Cunning Stunts: Special Vehicle Circuits, Gunrunning, Smugglers Run, Transform Races, The Doomsday Heist, and others that were left out.)
  • When the weather is set to "Xmas", make the ground be covered in snow.
  •  The ability to customize weapons (ex. Add Suppressor to Sniper Rifle)
  •  Ability to set a waypoint and choose to spawn at that location.
  •  Add the newest and up-to-date weapons (Flare Gun, Battle Axe, Flashlight, Pool Cue, Switchblade, Homing Launcher, Marksman Pistol, Double Barrel Shotgun, Mini SMG, Compact Grenade Launcher, Sweeper Shotgun, Compact Rifle, Pipe Wrench, Firework Launcher [?], and the Pipe Bomb.)
  •  Add Access to North Yankton
  •  Access to the "Dignity" Yacht and Aircraft Carrier
  • Access to Bolingbroke Penitentiary without using an aircraft or using a ramp to get in (Gate does not currently open)
  •  Enter Merryweather Docks without NPC's being hostile.
  •  Ability to access First Person using ALL Characters.
  •  Access to Martin Madrazo as a playable character.
  • Be able to insert a voice-over when creating a Rockstar Editor Video.
  • Option to stay in scene longer after death of character.
  • Ability to remove the "Director Mode" watermark along with other HUD features.
  • More Coming Soon!


If one of the above suggestions gets implemented into the game, it will have a line through it like this.


2 of the suggested features from this thread has been implemented into the game.



The following ideas are ones that Rockstar has denied access to. They did not provide any explanation other than the fact that they "are just not feasible".

  • The ability to customize characters with different clothes options rather than the preset outfits.
  • Ability to use Director Mode with other players to record scenes with real people.
  • The ability to spawn NPC's and command them to do certain things (ex. Be hostile or walk down the street)
  •  Ability to Open Doors of Delivery Vehicles/Back of CargoBob and Titan.
  • Ability to make character lay down.
  • Ability to sit/lean on cars, walls, benches, and etc.

This thread is a repost of THIS ONE which was locked by moderators due to unnecessary bumping. This thread will not be bumped like the last one.

Rockstar Games has replied to the most recent submission of this list that was sent out on 07/04/2018. While they gave no insight to any new features that we may see added to Director Mode or the Rockstar Editor, they did provide a list of ideas that would not be added to the game. These suggestions have been removed from the "Suggestions" section in the above post and have been moved to a new section labeled "Blacklist". Rockstar did not provide any explanation as to why these features cannot be added other than the fact that they "are just not feasible".
