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.
- >> 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.
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.

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