  • Auto Highlight Reel

    I originally posted this on the playdota forums but the nice people sent me here.

    I had a cool idea the other day, what if there was an automated highlight reel playing when you logged in?

    The game could parse your multikills or epic survivals and splice them together to form a highlight of your own badass plays. How often do you have an epic moment that you forget about? Well the game could auto save the replay and update it as you do more awesome stuff. Perhaps even enter slow-mo or zoom in and follow your killing shot.

    The replay system seems so robust already that this might not be that hard to implement. You could also add an 'export to youtube' type of feature so you can wag your swag in the face of all the haters.

      Great idea. I actually searched "highlight reel" to see if anyone had this idea already.

      I was thinking you should be able to cut and paste clips out of the replays and put them into a highlight reel. But if the game does it automatically then perhaps that's a better idea.
