CODED LIVE MOVIE MAKER HUD ADVANCED

Read troubleshooting remarks at bottom.
After you made a Coded Live Movie with the HUD, you can see it immediately in Second Life. If you want a machinima, you have to record the movie with Fraps or Bandicam. A link to how to do that will follow here. But now back to the HUD.
 
Features:

The first options (EXIT, MOVIE, GETVIEW) are the same as in the free basic version. The new options make it more comfortable to work with the HUD.
 
- >> EXIT <<<  stops the script and brings back your standard camera view.
- MOVIE Runs the movie
- GETVIEW Gets the actual view (your screen) as coordinates and rotation in chat, copy and write it into the EDLC notecard then

- VIEW 1-11, VIEW 12-22, VIEW 23-33 You can watch single views
- WEBHELP    This page
- WORKMOVIE Runs the movie with remarks needed for working
- TRYMOVIE See below
- PREVIOUS   Back one view
- NEXTVIEW Forward one view
- INFO NC      Gives you a notecard for info

With VIEW 1-11, VIEW 12-22, VIEW 23-33 you can see up to 33 views (As single views not as a movie. The movie can have more views. View 34 you can have with NEXTVIEW etc. ). Reminder: A VIEW looks like this: 

<14.06014, 84.28810, 19.42281>, <0.58384, -0.34089, 0.63631, 0.37153> 6 

You can get it by chosing something you want to show (your actual screen) and clicking GETVIEW. See: CODED MOVIE MAKING.

If you have chosen a single view you can see the next or previous view by clicking the corresponding buttons NEXTVIEW or PREVIOUS.

WEBHELP:       This page.

You should work with WORKMOVIE first, because you get some information in local chat concerning what notecardline you are watching etc. MOVIE shows you the movie only without further informations. WORKMOVIE and MOVIE are reading from the same EDLC notecard.

By clicking TRYMOVIE you'll see the menu below.
The idea is, that you can try a sequence of shots before you insert them into the MOVIE notecard (EDLC) or afterwards if you want to change something.
Put some views into the EDLC_TRY notecard and you'll see them as single views by clicking TryView 1 to 10 or the sequence by clicking RUNTRYMOVIE. NEXTVIEW or PREVIOUS will not work for this at the moment.

TROUBLESHOOTING:
Two quotes from LSL Wiki : Camera:
"It seems like the camera does not always release properly when unsitting an avatar (I would add: Or detaching a HUD, Ataro A.) even though permissions are lost." "The camera can often not behave as one would desire."
( http://lslwiki.net/lslwiki/wakka.php?wakka=camera )


"Camera not released properly" means: You are stuck in a camera view and you can't get rid of it. Due to lag or a bug in the script etc., this happens sometimes, but not very often. 
What can you do then? 
Maybe you forgot to leave without clicking >> EXIT << ? Wait until you can click the HUD again and leave with >> EXIT <<.
 If not, camera emergency shortcuts may help:
SHIFT-ESC, maybe twice - and/or CTRL-9
Or: Move your avatar some steps forward  

or Teleport to another sim (and come back, works most of the time)
or Relog. 

Quickest: Rightclick the HUD, choose EDIT -> CONTENT and look for a button named "Reset Scripts". Click it. All should be ok then.

INSILICO SOUTH (Working Title). A Coded Live Movie

Mars looks very different now after rebuilding (although interesting), don't know if my story is possible there.
(Heard yesterday (end of Febr. 2014) that Insilico South will be rebuilt. So I stop it and wait for the new one)
This movie is about a cup of coffee you drink on Mars. It's the old struggle between HOME and STRANGENESS. Mars is very strange. But if you sit at a table and have a cup of coffee, you feel at home. A small part of Mars has changed to HOME.

MOVIE HELP:

- Attach the HUD

- TP to Mars first (Insilico south)

- Sit down on this chair: (Pic not taken on mars, just a sample pic)

















- Load the musicstream if you like (drum and bass)

- Click MOVIE and push ESC

- Remove the UI  with CTL / ALT / F1. (by doing this you will see what UI = User Interface is)

- Remove the HUDs from the screen with Shift / ALT / H (and toggle back)

- MOVIE should run now

(not finished)

 More soon.

A part of the "movie set" is in the the black spheres. Some are still empty. They are phantom, so you can "walk" them and have a look.
In the background you can see the "Dragon Sky" windlight.
