Universal Unreal Unlocker Adds Photo Realistic Mode to Most Unreal 4 Games
Games can make you a better photographer, according to Hideo Kojima, but your shots will only be as good as the tools you use. Just like a good real photographer needs a decent camera to take good photos (and maybe some good light sources and a few tripods), a good in-game photographer needs a game with a good photo mode. .
Most games come with some sort of in-game screenshot ability, and many go one step further to let you freeze the game and unlock the camera so you can find the perfect shot. . But if your game doesn’t have this feature, then PC Gamer suggests Universal Unreal Unlocker.
This mod was created by Frans Bouma, a software developer who made several camera mods for games in the past but wanted to do something a little more universal. So he created Universal Unreal Unlock, a camera mode that works with over 300 games running on Unreal Engine 4.
UUU lets you do a lot of things. You can of course move the camera around freely, but you can also activate the game console controls to start to really get to the heart of what is presented on the screen.
You can remove the HUD in the game for clearer shooting. You can use the frameskip feature to find the perfect moment in an action-packed sequence. You can program your camera to follow a path for a series of Matrix-style photos. Or you can change your game’s graphics settings to improve an image even beyond its “ultra” settings.
One of the most impressive features of UUU is “hot sampling”, which essentially instructs your game to create a super high resolution momentary frame so that you can get the maximum number of pixels for your photo.
UUU even lets you go beyond what’s already in the game by adding new sources of light to the real-time footage, which you can see in the latest shots from Bouma Kena: Bridge of Spirits.
Universal Unreal Unlocker is available here. Check out the PC Gamer coverage for even more great screenshots from the UUU Discord channel.
