Surreal Capture is a world first and only generic 360° gameplay video capture software for Unreal Engine 4 (UE4) powered games. It can capture cool surreal 360 degree video directly from UE4 game in realtime when user is playing game. Surreal Capture does not require any modification to UE4 games.
To capture 360° video, user first launches UE4 game. Once in game and ready to capture, user launches Surreal Capture software and waits for a few seconds for it to initialize. Now user presses F8 hotkey to start 360° video capturing. And later user presses F8 hotkey again to complete the capturing.
Surreal Capture currently should support all games that developed based on Unreal Engine 4.5 or later. If you are interested in capture 360° video from UE4 games, you can download and try Surreal Capture software from here.
Important tips: Because 360° capture puts additional heavy load on GPU and your game FPS would be affected significantly, so it may be good idea to configure UE4 games to run on Medium graphic settings.
Surreal Capture is a shareware with 15 days trial period. After 15 day trial period, user needs purchase a license to continue use it.
360° video capturing had been a long quest specially after VR booming. Many big tech companies like Facebook and Nvidia had tried this before. But their solutions would require to modify games source code and recompile games, which is not realistic and desirable.
It was extremely difficult to develop a generic software that can just plug into a game and capture 360° video from it, untile now.
Surreal Capture is world first and only software right now that can capture 360° video directly from UE4 games in real time without modifying and recompile games.
Surreal Capture deploys a proprietary Spatial Video Capture Engine, which can plug into UE4 games and capture 6 cubic images from it in realtime and compose 360° video.
Surreal Capture heavily relies on the video game capturing technologies developed in its parent software D3DGear Game Recording Software. Surreal Capture software actually includes all the D3DGear runtime binaries. Without D3DGear existing capture technology, Surreal Capture software would not be possible.
Here are a few 360° video samples captured by using Surreal Capture software:
