Team Fortress 2 Update Introduces Replay Editor

Postby ad_hominem on Fri May 06, 2011 11:04 am

It seems nowadays that there are so many small updates for Team Fortress 2 that it's barely worth telling people about them. However, I've made an exception on this occasion for a number of reasons - the main one being it doesn't revolve around buying a new game in order to get a different hat.

Put away those hand puppets. Stop sketching stick figures in that flipbook. Cancel the Team Fortress LARP session you were planning. Finally, there's a much easier way to show people that totally badass move you did in TF2 last night: introducing the Replay System.

Never again will you have to resort to grunts and potentially lewd hand gestures. Replay-enabled servers record every round of the action, allowing you to make movies of your awesome performance (and the embarrassing performances of others) in the Replay Editor, using different camera angles, sexy motion blur and antialiasing.


On top of the new replay editor, Valve are hosting an awards ceremony in two weeks time for the best efforts from the community in twenty categories, including 'Best Mid-air Murder', 'Best Cinematography' and 'Most Extreme Stunt'.



There's also a new comic for people to peruse (with possible frames from Meet The Medic in the last page), and more information on the update available on the official site.

No. Hence the word 'Editor'.

This will be an awesome feature, but not quite the Movie Maker I would have rather had.

Edit:
Not to say the video taking part is lackluster, just not the feature filled tool we only had a glimpse of.

I actually think limitation is good for creativity. If we had an engine that could do everything, we would be in trouble. It gives us focus. ~~ Randy Lundeen
