Rockstar Games recently announced that the next update to GTA Online will be bringing the popular Rockstar Editor to the current generation consoles. However, it has since been confirmed that the 1.29 update will affect the editor beyond porting it to new platforms.
The not-for-long PC exclusive gameplay recording and video editing suite was developed specifically for GTA V. It allows players to capture their screen while playing, and then later edit the footage. They can do this by snipping it, re-arranging it, adjusting camera distance and angle, adding special effects, changing the weather and also the time of day. The application offers a plethora of other editing options besides these as well.
The 1.29 update will expand the features of the Editor on all platforms. The new features include an Ambient Audio and Sound Effects library that will allow you to further customize the audio of your video, and you’ll be able to add your own files to this library. The update will also bring Snapmatic and the Editor closer together by integrating the former into the latter, allowing you to transfer any still frame from the editor to the Snapmatic app.
The favored Director Mode will also be seeing an update, with a new minimap that will show preset POIs, and the mode will give players the ability to spawn air and aquatic vehicles which are available in GTA Online. You’ll also be able to copy your already painstakingly edited audio settings from marker to marker, making the editing process a lot easier and quicker. The fonts library at your disposal has also been tripled in size.
The Rockstar Editor has been an extremely popular tool ever since it launched alongside the PC version of GTA V back in the day, and numerous immensely creative videos have popped up in the community since.
Will the Xbox One and PS4 players among you be making use of the Editor when 1.29 launches?
