does the lua script have to be activated with a pressure plate.
You can put the call inside a function, and trigger it as usual; [timer/floor_trigger/button...etc].
Is there a way of taking video in game.
Fraps, or OpenBroadcast come first to mind.
Does anyone know a good video editing software.
Windows comes with a movie editor, there is also VirtualDub, and you might have one that came free with DVD authoring software.
Blender (of course)
A quick search on Google (or other engine) should return a host of options.
How is text and video put with this video.
Two options: Use the video editor to add text; or use the GUI functions in LoG2 to overlay text.
The second option is better, because the text can be dynamic... It can be used to address a character by name, or include other variables in the text captions.
** For audio: Place the soundtrack as an oog file in the folder with the video and use the same name [prefix] as the video.
