movie [-record [name]] [-size [width] [height]] [-quality [0-1]] [-noui] [-noaudio] [-nocrop]

Movie Examples


Find below working examples of the movie command.


movie -record movie1

This command would start recording for a movie that would be saved in Documents\My Spore Creations\Movies as "movie1.avi" when you stop recording (type movie into the console again to stop recording). Note that this command would probably record a low quality movie - use the below command to record a better quality movie.

movie -record movie2 -size 1920 1080 -quality 1

This command would start recording a movie that would be saved at Documents\My Spore Creations\Movies\movie2.avi with the dimensions 1920x1080 (1080p, HD) with the highest possible quality (1).

movie -record movie2 -size 1920 1080 -quality 1 -noCrop

This console command would do the same as the second example, but not crop the capture size of the outputted video to your game's aspect ratio.

movie -record movie4 -noUI

This command would record a movie without the UI.
