Being a PS3 Filmmaker Just Became a Whole Lot Easier

The introduction of the LOOT Active Camera opens the door to new realms of social video content experiences.

User-created content can now be recorded and uploaded to both YouTube and the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system’s XrossMediaBar directly from PlayStation Home with the new LOOT Active Camera.

Developed by LOOT, Sony DADC’s Digital Services development team, the LOOT Active Camera features YouTube functionality and is available in the LOOT store on PlayStation Home.

The introduction of the LOOT Active Camera opens the door to new realms of social video content experiences. In the past, people who wanted to capture video from video games and other virtual environments had to invest in separate PC capture and recording equipment. Now, this capability is seamlessly integrated into the PlayStation Home experience with the LOOT Active Camera allowing users to save and upload videos coupled with controls for recording and editing provided through the XMB Video Editor & Uploader, which means users can share with friends on YouTube and across social networks.

Virtual filmmaker can now create any story or movie from the virtual world and share it on social media via YouTube.  Sure, there is a learning curve, but once you master a view skills, which some filmmakers have already done, your creations are endless.

Seamless integration with YouTube makes it easier than ever for virtual videographers to share their productions across the globe. With more than 3 billion daily views, YouTube is a top-tier social network through which millions of people connect, inform and inspire each other every day. Now that the LOOT Active Camera is available web video has taken a jump in social media. I look forward to seeing all the creative videos generated from the computer entertainment system.
