The Rockstar Editor, a gameplay capture and video editing software developed specifically for Grand Theft Auto V on the PC has been used in numerous fun and creative ways by the community. Much like the use of mods (also on the PC), the Rockstar Editor is one of the main reasons why we still see GTA V in the news pretty much every week even so long after the game’s release. The editor can be used both in GTA V’s single player mode, and in Grand Theft Auto Online, and features a special “Director Mode” allowing for choreography and staging, and allows users to make use of pedestrian character models and animals, as well as approaching the recorded segment from any angle in-engine.
The recreation of notable scenes from popular culture definitely isn’t a novel idea, as it has been done ever since the Rockstar Editor launched alongside the PC version of GTA V. Some time ago the adaptation of Breaking Bad in GTA V was making the rounds on the internet.
Most recently, the classic sitcom Full House got the Grand Theft Auto treatment. With the announcement of a follow up series, “Fuller House” (see what they did there? Really subtle, that…), word of the sitcom has been often spoken in recent news. The recreation is pretty damn accurate, though there is a tad more death and destruction involved, because of course there is. This is GTA we’re speaking about here. Someone gets hit by a cable car at one point. Check out the video here:
And for those of you unfamiliar with Full House, or just have forgotten what the opening was like, here’s a side by side comparison of the two. Pretty faithful, no?
Fuller House is set to hit Netflix sometime soon, with much of the old cast reprising their roles from the classic series.
