How to: make weapons float for Screenshots. A Tutorial

[b]This technique has been used in "Gargoyle"[/b] This is a tutorial on how to make weapons float in the air for screenshot purposes. Floating weapons for screenshots is one of the best techniques and brings many new possibilities to forge art. Until today I have kept this a secret but I will happily reveal it to you here and now. [quote][b][u]Step 1:[/b][/u] Make a platform for the weapons to be placed on, bridges work best. Make sure the bridges themselves are floating in the air. To do so hold the object in the air in the position you wish it to be then press start, save game then end game. Once you start up the game the object should be floating. [b]NOTE[/b] that this does not work with weapons as they will fall once the game starts. [b][u]Step 2:[/u][/b] Once you are done setting the platform in which you plan to place weapons on, place any weapons you wish in any form or design. [b][u]Step 3:[/b][/u] Once you are done drawing your design on the floating bridge/s save the game. [b]DO NOT[/b] delete the base yet. Save the game first. Once the game is saved you can go back and delete the bridges and the weapons are floating! If you start new round or touch/shoot the weapons they will fall. Stay away from the weapons. Even after you delete the platform do not save game. You may go back and take as many screenshots as you wish, but each time you will have to delete the bridges in the beginning of the game. That is how it works. Meaning this technique can only be done in Forge.[/quote] [i]If you wish to make the weapons appear to be floating vertical follow these steps.[/i] [quote] [b][u]Step 1:[/u][/b] Place the object in which you wish to use as the platform at a 45° angle. Make sure it is no more than that or the weapons will slide. [b][u]Step 2:[/u][/b] Place the weapons on the platform in any design you feel like. [b][u]Step 3:[/b][/u] Save the game, then delete the platform and your weapons are floating at a slight angle. To make the illusion that the weapons are vertical take the screenshot from a 50-60° angle. Make the spartan or elite stand close to the camera. This gives the illusion that the spartan/elite is in correct proportion to your weapon drawing. example: [url=http://i189.photobucket.com/albums/z24/predator5791/EXAMPLE.jpg]here[/url][/quote] Take these steps and you will end up with a screenshot that is unbelievable. Hope this tutorial helps you guys out. Be creative have fun. [quote][/quote] [i]Please do not message me regarding this thread. I will soon have a video on my youtube account giving a step-by-step tutorial for those who do not fully understand.[/i] [Edited on 12.05.2008 11:48 PM PST]

  • You could also save/quit every piece individually. Although that'd be a pain in the ass.
