Hi everyone,

I was just curious about making a game that utilizes live video footage.. there were some action games in the vein of "lethal enforcer" that i remember, but i can't find them.. so here is something else i found http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/506452

I heard about some AVI plugin, though it's not in C2 currently, but maybe it's a third party plugin? Just curious if this s even possible.. overlaying graphics on it would be cool too, like the old laser disk games like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5O-A2r1ACw


Thanks,
Caleb

Hi there!
I was also trying to see if it is possible to use C2 to create full motion video games?
Does anyone have any ideas?

The question isn't so much if C2 can do this... the real issue is to record the video footage and use some editing software to cut out the parts you want and convert them to animation sequence images (separate frames of the video saved as individual pictures).

C2 can easily make this type of game, but the pre-production of getting the footage and editing it is going to be the more challenging component.

@pervyboy You can easily make such a game. Just import your video files into C2 and show them where you want with the media plugin. As simple as it gets :)

Thanks for the suggestions. I am actually making a simulation game for my students, just to teach them about customer service. so nothing complicated.
