Camera Mode is a special mode introduced to the 电脑版 in 184.108.40.206 for taking screenshots of a player's world, providing additional controls to capture images of selected areas of the map or screen. Camera Mode is activated by pressing F1, which replaces the gameplay interface with a specialized image capture interface. While Camera Mode is active, mouse control is used to frame the picture, and the player can neither build nor use items, but selecting an item on the hotbar using the number keys or pressing Esc will cancel Camera Mode.
Unrevealed sections of the world will not be uncovered by Camera Mode, represented as black swaths similar to ordinarily unexplored areas on the minimap.
The most basic utility provided by Camera Mode, the Screenshot option simply takes a full-size picture of the screen. The interface is hidden in screenshots taken using this function. The produced image is the same size as the viewable window, meaning that the size of produced images will change if the game window is resized.
The primary function of Camera Mode is its ability to capture selected areas of the screen by using the frame functions. Using Pin Frame, left and right clicking will set the two opposing corners of the rectangular capture area highlighted in white. Set Frame instead allows the player to drag the edges to expand the frame. Reset Frame removes the frame entirely, and Take Snapshot produces a complete image of the region inside the frame. Frames can also be set from the large map, which can be accessed by pressing M or selecting the Open Map function.
Both snapshots and screenshots are saved to /user/My Documents/My Games/Terraria/Captures, which can be accessed using the Open Folder function.
Prior to taking a picture, several options can be selected to modify the camera's output.
