Many Minecraft players record video footage of themselves playing. There are hundreds of Minecraft-related YouTube channels, for example, and all of these players use various video recording programs to get the job done.
The Camera Studio Mod for Minecraft is one such mod. The Camera Studio Mod for Minecraft lets players easily record audio and video, which makes it easy to do mod commentary or YouTube videos or just record in-game sounds.
You can access these recording features simply by using the /rec command. /Rec starts and stops recording and the hotkey is configurable.
One of the coolest features in the Camera Studio Mod is the ability to record yourself playing from a third-person view while playing in first-person view. You can record multiple viewpoints at the same time without messing around with multiple Minecraft installations or accounts.
Like many video recording mods and tools, the Camera Studio Mod introduces some lag to the game – even if you’re normally able to run Minecraft smoothly, you may notice some lag while using the /rec function. The good news is that this lag is not noticeable on video recordings. However, if you have a lower-end PC, expect to experience noticeable amounts of in-game lag.
Here are some other valuable features with the Camera Studio Mod:
-Accurate control over day and night cycles
-The ability to easily create time lapses
-Players can set a path their player will automatically follow and control what the player sees/looks at along that path.
Perfecting these commands can be a bit tricky but it’s certainly do-able. You can view all of the mod’s commands in this forum thread.
If you like filming beautiful Minecraft time lapse videos, then the Camera Studio Mod is simply the best way to do that in Minecraft. If you want a basic video recorder, then this can do that too.
