This time, I'll present you RenderMoodifier, the ultimate tool for videomakers!
What is it?
This tool allows you to modify the mood settings during a render in function of the frames. You can set things that will be changed, like the sun position or size, the fog depth, the clouds color, ...
It means that you will be able to create real sunsets.
How does it work?
It's really simple: the software keeps an eye on the ManiaPlanet window and detects when you're rendering a video. Then, it analysis the window's title, when the frame number changes, the software quickly saves the new XML with values calculated in function of this same frame number. That's all!
- Before launching ManiaPlanet, start RenderMoodifier (RM). If it's the first time you launch it, go to the Others menu and choose Settings. Then configure your ManiaPlanet resources directory (the one which is in your documents by default). Valid.
- In the Environments & Moods menu, choose the environment you want to use in your render. If the Mood file already exists, it will be loaded. Otherwise it will be created with default values. The XML code is now displayed.
- To set things that will change, you have to add parameters. To do that, select values in the XML code (only numeric values for now) and press Add in the right hand panel. Enter a meaningful name like SUN_POS or DAY_TIME. Now, your parameter is listed in the list. You can change the start value and the end value with the numeric boxes laid down for that purpose.
- You can launch ManiaPlanet and click the Look for ManiaPlanet button. This will search the game instance.
- Before starting a video render, click the Detect Render button. That will lock the software until a render is detected or you turn off this button.
- You can now start your render! Once done, RM will automatically switch into render mode and calculate the XML values for each frame.
- Once the render is finished, RM will notice you the end and put the original XML code in the file.
An example! Quick!
