Uncharted 2's Cinema Mode Gets Green Screen, Bluetooth Support

Naughty Dog is finally offering details on Uncharted 2: Among Thieves' "Cinema Mode," a suite of machinima tools that lets PlayStation 3 owners replay, edit and tweak saved gameplay footage and share with friends. There's nothing half-tucked about it.

Justin Richmond, multiplayer designer on Uncharted 2, walks Machinima.com through the finer details of the game's Cinema Mode in the above clip. Notable are the addition of a green screen mode that will let video editors layer Nathan Drake and crew over whatever background you choose and the option to use a Bluetooth headset to record speech that will automatically lip synch on-screen characters.

There's a lot more to it than that, obviously, including cool camera control, lighting and environmental effects, video sharing, and even a gameplay mode specific to Uncharted 2's machinima features. There's a lot to see in the above five minute clip, something that budding machinima creators and Uncharted fans must watch.


    I... I... think I need a new pair of pants...
    At first I was thinking "well this is all liquid awesome, but I'm not sure this is the type of game it'd be best for. Maybe KZ or Warhawk would be better." But now... I might get a second copy just to hug at night...
