Different external zoom levels in P3D 2.5 and 3.0

Recommended Posts

I am very happy to have my (many) Opus FSI cameras working in P3D 3.0, and with all my settings intact. However, the external camera is zoomed in slightly too close in P3D 3.0. Just a notch - external cameras that have 0.40 zoom in P3D 2.5 will be at 0.50 in 3.0. In my camera.cfg I have identical settings for the  "OpusFSI External Camera" in 2.5 and 3.0, with InitialZoom = 0.8 in both .cfg files. And strangely, if I edit the InitialZoom value down one notch to 0.7 in P3D 3.0 it causes external cameras to zoom out two notches, eg. from 0.5 to 0.3!

 

I'm hoping it is possible to have identical zoom levels in 2.5 and 3.0, otherwise I will need to edit a lot of cameras, but I can't figure out what's causing the difference...

This is not under my control. Don't change the Camera Definitions though as the software assumes a certain default zoom level. As I've said zoom control, and camera control in general, is very primitive within the sim. The actual rendering of course is the responsibility of the sim code. If it's changed drastically in v3 then it should be reported to LM as there's nothing I can do within the external FSISERVER addon. Perhaps LM are unaware of your findings or discovered differences.
