How To Use Capture Mode

You can use capture mode in two ways. You can either pause your live mode so that all dinosaurs and people are frozen in place. Alternatively, you can continue live mode whilst accessing the capture screen to get action-packed footage.

This is how to use capture mode:

  • Open up your pause screen. This is the screen that shows you "resume, load, save..." and there should be an option for "capture mode". Click on this.

  • This will take you back into your park but the mission objectives, side menu, and any extras have been taken off of the screen. This means that you will have a clear view of your park to take photographs.
  • In capture mode you will have a few control prompts at the bottom of your screen. One of them will show you how to hide UI (this hides the little settings menu you get in capture mode). Hide this, then you can take a screenshot to take a photo.

How To Change Photo Settings in Capture Mode

If you're feeling creative, then you can change a few settings in capture mode to get a unique photograph of your park. When you open capture mode, you should notice a small menu appear in the bottom left of your screen. This will give you some options for settings that you can change and these are:

  • Frame - This will let you put a small logo from a few of the iconic Jurassic Park films in the corner of your photo.
  • Letterbox - This will let you put a variety of thick black bars at the top and bottom of your image. This can give your photograph a cinematic feel.
  • Filter - No cat ears here, but you can put colour filters over your images. You can have a variety of filters from black and white to night vision.
  • Guidelines - This is a grid that appears on the screen, it can help you to line up your photograph to get the perfect shot.

All you need to do is play around with these settings to find out which ones you want for your photograph.

What Is Capture Mode?

Capture mode is the photo mode for the game. It allows you to take as many or as few cinematic photos of your park as you want. You can use capture mode to get intense cinematic images of a T-Rex battling a Carnotaurus or you can use it to get a scenic photo of a sunrise. What you do with this mode is up to you.

All of your hard work can pay off in some incredible photos in Jurassic World Evolution 2. The more dinosaurs you have, the more dynamic your images can become. We have a guide that shows you how to incubate dinosaurs from a hatchery. We also have a guide on how to unlock the lagoon enclosure so that you can have marine reptiles in your park.
