NotesEdit

  • In order to use features like Filters or DoF, the player must have Color Correction and Depth Of Field turned on in the game's options menu. As some players prefer to keep these options turned off, this forces the player to manually turn these options back on for each Captura session.
  • The player is only allowed to spawn a maximum of 3 enemies in a session. This can be worked around slightly by spawning in units who themselves spawn in more enemies, such as Drahk Masters or Boilers.
    • Similar to the Simulacrum allied units such as Specters or Xiphos turrets are considered towards the enemy total, and are also destroyed when using the "Kill Enemies" command.
  • Enemies cannot be spawned in Syndicate or Conclave scenes.
  • The lighting for the Color Key Scene is not even, and has many dark spots as well as lighting being pointed only one way in some cases. Turning up the brightness alleviates this issue, but only exacerbates the unnatural coloring of warframes in this mode (see bugs).
  • You cannot hide chat at all while in Captura, so while you can take manual screenshots without HUD in settings (PC), this is not possible when recording the screen through video and the chat will still appear.
  • The Lunaro Arena Scene only allows usage of your Lunaro Loadout.
  • When enemies hit the player with melee or bullets, they will still glow as if they were damaged, which can ruin captura scenes with the player partially glowing in the spot enemies hit them.
  • Zooming in / Aiming with a Synthesis Scanner scanner whilst switching into camera mode, will allow you to keep the orange tint seen on the HUD, without the scanner's overlay appearing. Going back into your warframe (or operator) and zooming out on the synthesis scanner will remove the orange tint.

BugsEdit

  • With the addition to it being joinable by other players, the ability to pause the game, even when joining captura solo, has been disabled.
  • You cannot do standing finishers on enemies in this mode in most cases, only finishers on knocked down enemies.
  • After it was made so the player has a working arsenal console to change equipment and loadouts the lighting and textures completely changed, and most characters will appear brighter and washed out in the Color Key Scene. A default Mag for example will have the metal rings on her feet appear like a matte plastic, rather than a shiny metal.
    • This is similar to the Simulacrum, where players will be coated in an oily texture, but while still remaining their "true" colors and textures as shown in actual missions.
MissionLookChangesMag
  • The pause menu camera is still linked to the player's Warframe/Operator. This can be seen when centering the camera on the character and moving only right or left, and you will notice that the Warframe will not stay centered, as the camera slightly angles itself towards the Warframe.
  • Selecting the Slow Motion option will slow down all movement, including pressing the escape button to show the HUD menu and going into the arsenal. This also will delay color changes you make to a weapon after leaving.

TipsEdit

  • The in-game Chat function is not hidden in any way when in Captura and as such, can get in the way when recording footage of this mode, and is especially intrusive in the Color Key scene. To counter this, the player can either enter the mode in "Friends Only", "Invite Only" or "Public" (although public will allow anyone in your clan/friends list to join you) which will give you the "Squad Chat". This can be used to hide messages from your clan, but will still show the chat icon in the bottom left for a short time when exiting a menu.
    • This is only a problem with recording Video of the game, or if the player wants to include the HUD in their screenshots.
  • The camera cannot be placed into most objects, enemies, or players, however there is a way to glitch the camera and force it to go into the listed objects and allow cinematic shots and/or PoV shots of weapons. A full tutorial on this can be found here.
