I hope I’m asking in the right place… A bit of story first.
I recently discovered that a program I have actually has a decent video editor buried in it. I’d been watching Garry’s Mod animations, and this discovery made me want to at least try creating one of my own.
I did some research first, as I knew the game’s screenshot function creates jpgs, and I wanted at least some visual quality. I ended up finding out about the “devshots_screenshot” command, which produces a high quality TGA pic.
I set up a test scene, and started taking pictures. After about 28 pics, I tabbed out to get rid of some duplicates and bad frames.
Here’s where I found something wrong. Half the pics had ended up being JPG files instead of TGA files, despite the face I’d been only using the devshots_screenshot command.
Does anyone else have this issue? It’s a bit of a setback; I think I can bypass it, but having to alt tab out after every pic to check if I got a JPG or a TGA seems a bit much.
