Sims 3 Movie Making

Hi guys! I am working on my very first Sims 3 series! I'm super stoked, but I have no idea what I am doing. I tried getting poses, but my computer is weird and didn't download into my Sims 3 Launcher like everything else did. I got all my stuff from The Sims Resource. When I downloaded all my poses, they went through Internet Explorer and I had the options to Save and/or Open. I was using Google Chrome while I was downloading the stuff, but it kept opening Internet Explorer up for my poses. Are poses like mods? Because I've tried to get mods before and they did the same exact thing that the poses are doing. Also, you know when sims are talking with each other and it has that little talking and action bar at the top left corner of the screen? How do I hide that when I am recording? And how do I hide the nude block for when my sims are in the shower or skinny dipping?

    I can provide you with a link to help you get mods into your game if you want them in there. Pose packs would go into the Package folder which is inside of the Mods folder.

    First you need to go into your Sims 3 folder and create a new folder called Mods. Next thing to do is to enter into the Mods folder and create a new folder called Packages. The Package folder is where your mods and pose packs will go into. The next folder to make is the Overrides folder which is also inside of the Mods folder. Afterwards, you then need to download and install the Resource.cfg file that is listed in the NRaas link that I provided for you. That too will go inside of the Mods folder as this is what makes the mods work.

    The link for the Rosource.cfg file

    Now you will need another program installed into your PC to be able to extract files that either have .rar or .7zip. Now if you are using Windows10, there is an app that comes with it called RAR Opener that allows you to open those files with .rar or .7zip.

    Sorry that I can't help with the movie making process as I have never made any movies.

    Hope this helps you a little bit... :)

    Thanks! @lisasc360 Also how do I know for sure that I have the RAR Opener? I do have windows 10, but I don't know if I have that on here.

    You're welcome... :) That I can't tell you since I am still on Windows 7 even though I have been thinking about doing the free upgrade on my PC before the offers expires at the end of this month.

    If you film it wouldn't show any action quaues under normal settings so if you film, what you would see later on would be everything without the UI and mouse movements. You can turn them on or off in settings which might be 'show Unser interface' or 'hide user interface'

    I am away at the moment so I cannot check but if you also want to turn off the speach and toughs bubbles and the plumbobs you can type a cheat called 'hideheadlineeffects true'
