How do you glide around the cockpit ?

Recommended Posts

I would really like to know how you glide around the cockpit sooooo smoothly.

I would love to be able to move left and right like you do.

I find the Quality of the videos FIRST class.

Many thanks indeed.

Regards

Richard

Thanks Richard! Yes indeed it is Ezdok, easily one of the best things ever made for FSX. I wouldn't fly without it.

Gosh, I have Ezdok but really do not get such smoothness.

Could you give us your settings pleaseeeeee? That would be so good.

Sorry I am having trouble getting the ecs file to show up in the EZCA set up window.

May be that's because I am using a Proflight Yoke and you are not. Silly me I should have asked.

Would that be correct.

Richard, don't think the yoke makes any difference to the Ezdok settings. Open Ezdok from the menu inside FSX, go to load camera set and navigate to wherever you saved the ECS file on your drive. Let me know how you get on.

Cheers

Ben

We used track IR for the circuit flights at East Midlands, but didn't use it after that as we found when looking up at the overhead it would often lose the tracking point and the consequent camera wobble would look rubbish on film. You can use track IR and EZDOK together, also but we decided to just stick with EZDOK for all the subsequent films.

 

To glide around the cockpit, just press the number key assigned to each view. You'll need to deactivate some of the default commands to do this. I think the key strokes I put in remain in the ECS.

Sure, but it will take a little time. I know that Froogle made a nice little video about setting up EZDOK. If you google it, you'll find it on YouTube.

You can also switch off TrackIR for each individual camera view by deselecting the TIR button.

I normally use the pilot / copilot positions with TIR and close ups to things like the FMS without TIR.

This gives the stability to do precise things like button pushing while still enjoying the flexibility of looking around in the main views.

Hope this helps.

If its the feeling of smoothness you're looking for then it may be as simple as checking your EZDOK settings. I need to do this almost every time I load up as it always seems to return to its default state, but open your EZDOK window and select the general settings. On the right side of the settings window you should see options such as Walk, Cinema, 3D Game, and Float. Each one is available for Cockpit, Aircraft and World Cameras. 

 

I find that the software seems to default back to 3D Game for each mode when I load up, so I need to go in and change all 3 to "Cinema." With those setting I get nice smooth movements instead of the camera flying around too fast. Might be worth checking.

Hey,

 

 

These videos are just amazing, bought them few weeks ago, but finally managed to see few today.  Is there anyway can you make a tutorial for using OpusFSX's camera feature.  I am using Prepar3d v2.2 and I hear EzDock isn't really well supported on it (and development for that app has been stalled for a quite some time)...I can't invest in a product like EzDock where support and progress has halted.

 

Even a mini howto with OpusFSX Camera feature will help.

 

Thanks

Yes EZDOK is a great tool but as I understand it the author has faced some health issues which has precluded him from further development. The folks at Opus have kindly given us a copy of Opus FSX for evaluation but as Josh is here on Friday for the FO training sessions I don't want to start down a road with something new. Once we have a bit of time, we'll get Opus up and running and see if we can do some videos on it.
