I need such thing for non-game application:

A city-like 3D scene, containing a few people. People walk, run, stand, ... May be cars also.

Around the scene some cameras are located. And I need them to live stream 2D views to my application. I do not want to capture screen, because I will use lots of such cameras simultaneously.

May be Unity has such feature or something else?

  • \$\begingroup\$ "stream 2D views to my application". What is your application? and what do you mean by streaming, is it over the network ? how should streaming work ? \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ I want to make something like CCTV cameras analysis. So I need them to "live-stream" the picture. City-like 3D scene I need for debugging, because I do not have enough cameras. I think that both applications will work on one machine. So I just need stream from one application to another. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Would using something like Twitch.tv work? Can you capture the video in one go and then process that video afterward (rather than "live" streaming) ? Rendering the scene from multiple cameras at the same time may not be feasible on your target hardware, especially if your scene is meant to be vaguely realistically detailed; you may need to generate a video for each camera one at a time and batch process after. \$\endgroup\$ Jan 22 '14 at 18:45
  • \$\begingroup\$ We need to know more about your other application. It's possible to either convert the game view into video or use it directly in your application, but we need more detail. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ I do not need very detailed scene, so I think that it is possible. My application will analyse CCTV videos and find something on them. \$\endgroup\$

You can place cameras in the scene to cicling these cams and capture the video with a other program like Fraps, and saves of scripting time
