Fourteen days Developer Epic Games has added a replay feature for Fortnite battle royaleand the tool is a surprisingly powerful way to share your favorite moments from the game.

“In fact, we use the same system internally to film every weapon, outfit, and limited-time mode trailer that we release,” Epic said of the replay tools. “And we’re thrilled to finally be able to put these tools in your hands!”

The system will make it easy for people to save matches and study them for self-improvement or just see what happened during those frantic firefights, but there are some limitations. There is always a relatively small circle of view around your character, and you can only move the camera within that circle. You can’t zoom to the opposite side of the map to see what was going on there.

However, it’s pretty easy to start making great videos. Here’s how to get started.

So how do you enable the Fortnite replay feature?

You have nothing to do. It is enabled by default. Your last 10 games are automatically saved on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, and your last 100 games are saved on Mac and PC. These renditions are information about the server in this state and not visual information, so they don’t take up much space on your hard drive.

Go to the “Career” tab in the lobby and select the “Replay” option to view all the games you have saved on your system. Then select the one you want to view or edit. Your older games will be erased and replaced by newer games over time if you don’t rename the key replays and keep them to yourself.

Please note that your replays will only work in the current version of Fourteen days. Epic Games is working on a fix that will save your replays and play them in future versions of Fourteen daysBut now you should export your favorites to a standard video format via recording hardware or software if you want to keep them.

I want to show a shoot that looks great, what should I do?

I like your style! Come on because there are a lot of things we can ignore right now.

Go to the right side of the menu at the bottom of the screen where you will see a camera icon next to a bunch of options. This controls what the camera does on its own without you having to type anything.

Select “Drone Tracking” which will treat the camera as if it were on a flying drone, moving to keep the selected player in frame. While the game view shows things behind each character, in this mode you can move the camera so that the player faces you and shoots towards the camera instead of away from it. This gives you a more cinematic angle of view compared to the standard camera and doesn’t require you to monitor it to keep the action in frame.

Ok, now go back to the left where you will see a number followed by an “x” and flanked by a plus and a minus sign. This allows you to slow down or speed up the action. A simple rule of thumb is to slow things down when it shows action or shooting and speed things up when it shows construction.

It’s so easy! Change the camera to follow the drone, slow down the action and watch some firefights. It feels like John WickIt is not so ?

I want to show the build and make it look great. It is easy?

So easy.

Go back to camera modes and select “no drones” which places the camera on a flight point you control, which can move anywhere in viewable range around your character.

Zoom in with the camera to look down on the action and make sure you can see the entire area where the cool build moment is happening, then go back to the playback speed and speed it up instead of slowing it down.


Clever! A nice time lapse video that makes the build quite epic. Feel free to move the camera around as the action unfolds to make things even more professional.

But it still looks like a video game!

That seems good to me! Click the eyeball icon on the far left to turn off the HUD. That’s it, now you just see the action. Pretty impressive, right?

I want to be more imaginative anyway! Make me a cameraman!

Let’s do it you Roger Deakins you.

Click the camera icon to the left of the basic controls and take a deep breath. These terms might sound complicated and are based on photographic principles dealing with lenses and the real space between objects that only make sense in a video game, but whatever, the things you can do are interesting right off the bat. bat

Focal length refers to the length of a virtual camera’s lens. Increase this value to zoom in and decrease it for a wider field of view. You don’t move the camera. You change the way this virtual camera “sees” and interprets the image you want to capture.

So you can increase the focal length to get whatever is in the middle of the shot closer until it fills the frame. Then go to the opening settings and get this value Low. The lower this value, the more separation you will see between your subject and the background. At higher values ​​everything looks bright and sharp, but at lower values ​​only the subject is in focus. This is a great way to focus the viewer’s eye on the character you want to focus on instead of keeping the eye on the whole picture.

If you want to reverse this so the background is sharp and the foreground object is blurry, go to Focus Distance, turn it off and adjust the slider until everything you want the viewer to focus on is in focus.

It’s a simplification of how these things work in physical cameras, but if you’re focused on this playback system, or the photo modes of many games, you can think of it this way: Focus distance lets you choose which object in the frame is brighter while Aperture adjusts the difference in brightness between the focused object and everything else.

If this were the real world, you’d have a moment to take the perfect photo. But now that you have a record and understand how all the buttons work, you can keep doing whatever you want until you get it right.

That’s incredible! How can I edit this clip with other clips and post it on YouTube?

The short answer is you can’t. Well you can, but you need other programs to do this.

Epic Games said these tools will be improved in the future. For now, you can set up clips using the playback feature, but you still need to capture those clips and edit them into a longer video with something else.

It’s a bit beyond the scope of this guide, but OBS is free if you want to play around with exporting clips of your replays.

So there is no way to edit a longer video together?

Good …

It gets a little more complicated, but the PC version of Fourteen days allows you to save camera positions and properties by pressing ctrl plus a number on your number pad to lock it. Once you’re done, you can always tap the number to jump to that camera position.

Pressing Ctrl, Alt and a number saves the camera settings and playback time. So you can create a shot that shows you shooting at another player, record the start of the shot and frame it by pressing ctrl+alt and number one, then rotate the camera to capture the scene behind the character’s shoulder to show and press ctrl+alt and number two. Press play and then one and two on your number pad to switch between photos in real time.

You can save up to 10 of these cuts with all digits on your number pad.

Basically every time you want to show someone your scene you have to “do” the timing of the live cuts and there may be some flickering during loading time, but that’s a start!
