Cine Tracer v0.31 | Storyboard and Stand Ins

Cine Tracer v0.31 just went live. We have a new dedicated YouTube channel that will host all Cine Tracer content moving forward.

YouTube v0.31 Patch Notes:

Patch Notes:

1. New Storyboard System
We save the in game storyboards in a new way and the old boards may still load, but moving forward the game uses the new system.
You can now "save" the storyboards by hitting the camera icon and it will save a PNG of the storyboard to your project folder.

2. New "Grass Mini Map"
We are going to be creating some small "mini maps" that have specific useful biomes or locations. These should hopefully load better on lower end hardware.

3. Stand Ins
Your old Stand Ins will still be in the game, but you won't be able to make new ones. Please use the new ones.
The new Stand Ins have better skin/eye shaders and you can give them a name and "Tint" their clothing color.

4. New Smoke Props
Look in Props to find them. The different types of smoke react to light differently. Smoke #2 requires it to be back lit.

5. New Screen Prop
These act like in game signs or power point slides. Use these to easily add a text call out in your scene.

Cine Tracer v0.30 | How to Open Old Saves

Cine Tracer v0.30 now distributes the .SAV files into the "Project Folder."

YouTube Walkthrough:

Previously they were saved in the following locations:


MacOS /Users/*username*/Library/Application Support/Epic/CineTracer/Saved/

*Library on MacOS is usually hidden to get to it, go to your desktop and go to to the "Go" menu on the top bar. Then HOLD OPTION and you'll be able to go to the Library folder.

1. To open old save files, navigate to the directory listed above.

2. MOVE the .SAV file into the "Project Folder" that you designated in the game.

3. OR make a new folder and name that folder the EXACT name as the .SAV file and move the .SAV file inside of it.

FINAL NOTE: this is a very technical process and after v0.30 you will never have to do this. The .SAV will always be in the project folder.
