For years I have been frustrated with most sceners in Line Rider (including techdawg, LRG, ghosty, and more) for not planning out the framing of their video before they make the scenery. So since I was making this track anyway I thought I'd make a quick tutorial on how to frame a track for scenery.



Forgot to mention that once you are totally done with all the scenery you can erase all the framing before you record it. The framing is just so while you are scening you know where to stop so you're not scening stuff that won't be seen in the final product, and also so you can see where the camera travels which can help tons with placement of scenery elements and monuments and such.

This way you don't have, like, awesome monuments mostly out of view in a video, or videos where you zoom out to see a monument and the other half of the screen is blank.  (You can plan a zoom change with the framing too, you just have to decide exactly what frame to start and stop zooming)

Looks helpful Rabid, my method is a lot more trial and error but effectively achieves the same purpose.

What I tend to do is just guess where the edge of the screen will be, draw the lines and then check in play mode if it's visible or not.

^ I do the framing in a 720p window which is the size 3.4.x opens at. If it gets recorded in 1080 you can just double the zoom level number. (used to do it in a 800x600 window which is what size 6.2 opened at)

Don't frame full screen because the aspect ratio isn't the same as widescreen video
