[Mod] Green Screens [greenscreens]

by JBR » Mon Jun 10, 2013 06:15

This mod adds these blocks to Minetest:

Please note there is no crafting recipe for these block because it's not really meant to be used for building.
This is great for taking photos of objects/buildings and then cutting them out later in a photo editor.

An example "stage":

Example of use:

Hope this comes in handy!

I usually just change the texture for some random block to green/blue, make a studio/stage with it, take a screenshot, open it in GIMP, use the color select tool, and press delete. Still a very interesting idea, I think I will use it. :D

Nope. It's just a more efficient way of coding it. (not having to register each separate color of node) Take the colored wood mod for example. There are WAY to many different colors to code each node. Also,(as Hybrid-Dog suggested)change the image size to 1x1 because it is a single flat color.

I think coloredwood could look better if every block gets a special texture.

If possible you could pngcrush the textures, too

pngcrush?

What the f**k is your problem?? A forum is not a live chat!

But I don't understand your question. Which pictures do you want to show where?

I'd like to help as well. What do you mean, screenshot, or upload a picture onto the forum, or what?

He thinks the pictures are placed onto the green blocks, not the item that you want to takes the picture of. Easy mistake to make.

What this mod does is make single color blocks that you can place in your world. You then build a house or statue or something that you want a picture of on them. Then you position yourself so that you can see what you built with the single color blocks around it and take a screenshot. You then are able to take that screenshot into an image editing program and select the single color and delete it. Or you could invert the selection afterwards and then copy and paste your beautiful object out of the minetest world and put it into a different picture. That is all that this mod is really for. It doesn't allow you to display images onto the colored blocks.

Listen, the green screens aren't supposed to have a picture show up on them. They are for image editing pictures only, so if you aren't going to edit the screenshots afterwards, then this mod is useless to you. And also, there is no "easier" way of doing that in an image editor.

Basically, here is what the mod does:
It adds nodes, which you can put other nodes on.
You can take a screenshot and edit out the special nodes this mod adds, because they are basically shadowless.
You can then have the picture of the nodes you placed with no background.
