[Prototype] Panorama Screenshot

Post by Eddi » 22 Jul 2010 01:42

On giant maps, the giant screenshot is often really huge and takes ages, but the normal screenshot does not cover a large area, so often one can't show everything that is wanted, or make a zoomed-out screenshot missing a lot of details (and looking fairly ugly due to lack of antialiasing in 8bpp)

This "Panorama Screenshot" patch provides a screenshot method inbetween those, by making a "giant screenshot", but not of the whole map, only of the visible area in the screen. so you can zoom out to make the visible area bigger, but have full zoomed-in detail in the resulting screenshot.

Currently, this replaces the giant screenshot, but ideally it should add another menu entry, a console command and a hotkey (i suggest Ctrl+P). So if anyone knows how to do these, i'd appreciate it.
Update: now with menu entry and hotkey.
2nd Update: console command.

Great! I would suggest to replace shortcut of giant screen shot and leave that one empty. If someone would want to use giant screen shots, he would use menu (yes, another entry) or set a shortcut himself (I don't know, if that's possible at the moment, but at least someone is working on those configurable shortcuts).

Thank you very much Eddi!
Never thought about this option, but now I am surprised and lucky, that you brought us this method!
This will be really helpful f.E. in Screenshot-Threads/Stories.
I hope this Patch will leave Prototype Phase and is gettin' stable soon.

Gratulations,
Tim

Looking good Eddi.
I hope it hits trunk soon.

For what it's worth,
I think you are correct for reusing "big" for the panorama screenshot and introducing "giant" for giant screenshots in the console.
