Capturing a Specific Frame/Trace File in the Application
You can inspect dynamic effects such as lighting, explosion, or particles, frame by frame.
To find a specific spot in your target application and capture a frame/trace for further detailed effect analysis:
- Launch the application.
When you are close to the location that you wish to inspect, use the keyboard shortcut to pause the application. By default, the keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+P.
Press the default Ctrl+Shift+N to advance one frame. Repeat until you find the frame you wish to capture.
Press the default Ctrl+Shift+C to capture the frame or Ctrl+Shift+T to capture the trace file.
When you capture the frame file from the paused state, the tile renders the next frame and then returns to the paused state.
