Setting up your scene

Recording a take
The following is an example of the file structure of the recorded takes in Assets.
Reviewing a previously recorded take
- Open an unlocked Timeline window.
- Select the Take Recorder game object.
- Select an available Take from the list in the Take Recorder Inspector.
- Make sure the Take Recorder is in Playback mode instead of Live. Disable Live mode by clicking the Playback button in the Take Recorder component.
- Press the Play button in the Timeline or scrub the playhead.
- Press the Live button on the Take Recorder when you're ready to record again.
Iterative recording consists in recording layered takes over several iterations. Each iteration is a duplicate of the take set as iteration base, where Animation Track overrides are added to the base tracks.
For example, when using the Virtual Camera, you may want to capture just the position and rotation of the camera, and do focus pulling in a separate take to tune the Depth of Field.
Set a Take as the Iteration Base
- Select a take from the
Takeslist in the Take Recorder component and click on the button with the record icon.
Clear the iteration base
- Click the
Clearbutton next to the
Multi-pass recording allows you to select a different parameter or data
Channel to record.
- Select the Virtual Camera Device component.
- Toggle off the
Channelsthat should not be captured in the next recording.
- Press the Record button and redo the active Channels.
