JA Machinima I Am Making
Hey guys,

I am relatively new to JA and a few friends and I are thinking of making a machinima for JA. This machinima may have minor skinning and modding involved, but only basic stuff, as the only background of modding I have is in the Halo community.

However, we would require help from more senior members of this community. There are certain things we need to do:

- Get a good Video recording software - Yes, no $$ to get a good one, must be freeware and able to record sounds.
- Learn how to move the ingame camera - We know how to use console, but not move the camera
- Learn how to get rid of the HUD - The stuff can get in the way during filming.

I would appreciate help in these areas, and would greatly appreaciate it if I could receive some.

More news on the machinima will be released soon enough, if I can get these stuff resolved.

Thanks to all.

cg_ThirdPersonVertoffset -16
-moves the camera down or up, you could move down with -1 or up with +1

cg_ThirdPersonAngle 180
-rotates camera around any degree you choose.

cg_ThirdPersonRange 100
-(how close or far the camera is)

cg_fov 100
-Changes the camera perspective distortion

-Changes how the camera follows you when in 3rd person mode. Useful when taking screenshots. Default value is: 0.3

there's also exec files that can be run to use the numerical keys as camera controls

cg_draw2d 0
will deactivate the HUD

Helpful tips for demo recording and whatnot:;71385
