How do I take pictures during first person game play


Im knew to blender but I’m creating a very simple first person game and I want to be able to take photographs during gameplay from the first person view and export them from blender as JPEG or PNG file, if anybody has any idea on how to do this then it would be greatly appreciated if you shared your knowledge.


In this case I guess bge.render.makeScreenshot will do the trick.

Indeed it is possible to get them back into the game as texture via videotexture :smiley:

Yes. It will take whatever the viewport is rendering and capture it to an image file. Just like a screenshot.
