Grand Theft Auto 5's first PC director video is a stunning example of what's to come

Grand Theft Auto 5 hit Windows PC this morning and with it the ability to create absolutely stunning in-game videos using the title's robust video editor.

Rockstar Games commissioned YouTuber 8-Bit Bastard to create a video to show off the power of the editor. Running, Man is a short featuring Trevor in shorts. The video is also a fantastic example of just how powerful the new video editor and its director mode is.

And no wonder. The PC version supports resolutions up to 4K and beyond with the game running at 60 frames per second. There are also more than 25 different configurable settings for texture quality, shaders, tessellation, anti-aliasing and more, as well as support and extensive customization for mouse and keyboard controls. Additional options include a population density slider to control car and pedestrian traffic, as well as dual and triple monitor support, 3D compatibility, and plug-and-play controller support.

If this is the first official video editor creation, I can't wait to see what sort of masterpieces will be hitting YouTube in a few months.

In case you were wondering, the music is K.Y.S.A. by Phantogram.
