ClipMode=Minimum?

Recommended Posts

Could someone please explain the purpose of the ClipMode=Minimum tweak that some recommend be added to the FSX Camera.cfg file, and is this tweak reccomended for use in DX10 with the Scenery Fixer?

Thanks,

Al

Describes it.

Clip mode minimum allows a camera to view objects very close to it, but the accuracy of sorting of distant objects is reduced, which could result in z fighting in the distance.

Dx10 and dx9 should behave the same.

Thanks for the link Steve, read the info, but still don't know what is likely best to use.

  - What ClipMode setting, if any, do you usually use?

  - And if there is no ClipMode entry in the Cameras.cfg, does that equate to ClipMode=Normal?

Thx,

Al

I use the default cameras.. It's not a value I would ever think about changing unless I had a camera that didn't allow me to see what it was supposed to show.
