I use the built in Source Recorder for all of my Source machinima. I love the tool, it is a fantastic and very useful feature. I also use SR because my computer cannot handle in-game Fraps recording and so forth…
(specs: AMD 64 single core 2.2 GHz
ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT w/256 mb dediram
1.25 GB. System RAM.)
I have only one problem with it:
I cannot use the GMod Camera STool with it.
When I record my demo viewing from a camera, it records fine.
But when I go to make the .avi, the camera resets to the player’s First Person camera.
This basically makes the most common method of ragdoll posing and animation (manipulation with the physgun while a camera is pointed at it) impossible for me. This drastically reduces the quality of my machinimas.
I was wondering if there is any way to fix this at all. I would truly appreciate it if anyone here could enlighten me on a solution.
