I searched a lot on the Internet and could not find a solution or tips to this problem I’m going to show.
I’m trying to create a scene where 1 object or landscape is being recorded by several cameras at the same time during the game/simulation and footage from each of camera’s perspective is being recorded and later saved to separate video file OR images per frame if possible.
All I could find was using Sequencer with multiple cameras, but it’s not what I was loooking for, because if I understand correctly Sequencer can use multiple cameras, but in the output it shows only 1 view at the time, generating a single output file.
My goal is to have footage from few cameras separately at the same time.
NOTE: Experiment cannot be done in the same way twice
It means that when we HIT play again the recorded character will be moving in a different way than in the previous simulation. It means I cannot just record from different cameras by 1 at the time until I get footage from all cameras, pretending it’s from the same scenario. That is why I’m asking if it’s possible to record separate output from several cameras at once.
Another solution I found was:
doing screenshots from each camera every frame, but it’s really not good solution if the experiment lasts longer than 10 seconds and I’m looking to have at least 1 minute of footage and doing screenshots is so taxing that FPS drop below the desired framerate of 10.
Another solution I found too was:
implementing cameras in a tile style like multi-cam streaming. I think it’s also not this what I’m looking for because the entire screen is divided in smaller parts which make resolution of each separate footage smaller in output video and well, output video is only 1 file in the end.
Maybe there is a hope in using FrameCapture plugin, but I am not sure if it’s going to work like that. Maybe anyone knows? It’s a paid plugin. I don’t mind spending money, but I would like to know if It’s going to work like I want it to. I couldn’t find enough of information on the Internet about this plugin. I asked the author of the plugin, but I’m afraid the answering may take a while
Is it even possible to do what I am trying to accomplish?
I would like to have someone with an experience to answer that question, because if I am just wasting my time maybe I should give up.
