I have a feeling that I will be ditching EZ dok when this program is released.

Looks awesome.  I've never had a camera addon in my sim (I should because I like odd angled screenshots lol).  Actually I think my OPUS FSI has some camera control but I've never used it.

 

The only thing I find funny....  I still use 2d popups where possible for especially my radio controls - it's just the best and clearest display, and it usually allows me to see the rest of the instruments....  Anyway it's funny that users create custom views to mimic the 2d popups!  Sort of like we're going back to 2D in a 3D sort of way!

Indeed. In my case, the reason is pretty simple. As I use TIR and I am not capable of keeping my head in a turned fashion really still, I prefer switching view to a so called "2D like" 3D view, otherwise I either don't see the switches properly (too small) or I simply don't manage to click it :P

Yep will go that route probably too.

But hope to assign joystick buttons to camera views which can be done in EZDOK.

I've had it for about a month, and it's INCREDIBLE.  You'll love it.

How did you get it already? I heard that the Alpha preview will be available to be used for the general public. I wouldnt mind to use it too as EZDOK is just getting too finicky.

That's an impressive first impressions look at what's likely to be a must-buy for me. Key bindings, easy camera creation, an intuitive GUI to manage the cameras...perfect. I have to think that joystick button assignment will be included as well. Can't wait.

In addition to all we do, OVPA works with many differently developers, FSFX is one of them (and they are treasured friends!).

I wont be, as long as Chaseplane does not support TrackIR it's of little use to me.

It looks amazing and I was all about ditching EZCA for ChasePlane (when it comes out) until I realized it doesn't support TrackIR. Sadly it's simply of no use for me until it supports TrackIR.

Does anyone know if it works in VR with flyinsidefsx? Ezdok was reportedly not working well, so I haven't even tried to test it yet

Not supporting TrackIR is ridiculous. I would assume a large share of serious flight simmers using TrackIR and most probably will have no willingness to ditch it...

Did they say it won't support it? I use TIR and in that case, would not purchase it.

 

Edit: according to their site it is planned for version 1.0

I hope they really implement it for v1.0. But since they haven't looked at it yet there's no telling if that will really happen.

 

Well I prefer the positive route and find it hopeful that they will look at it, because it makes sense to have first the basics in place.

So we just have to wait and see, it would be a different story when they say upfront that there will not be support for TIR

 

Quote " Support for head tracking applications is planned for v1.0" the RTM version is scheduled for early 2017.

What will be released in November is still an alpha version (development stuff) and not even the beta version.

It would be an improvement of no particular significance if TIR was not supported. It would be foolish to present a new easy-to-use utility to the userbase whilst at the same time removing the use of another (rather crucial) one.

 

Due to the partly quote you made your missing the context ;-)

Agree - not sure how that happened. I saw their statement.

Can you assign each "custom view"  to a joystick/Keyboard button/key as you can do on Ezdok or Opus ?

Why on earth can you only store presets in the cloud? Back up, yes, i get, but what if i want to Sim with my computer offline?

Part of me thinks this is simply to help copyright protection, but part of me also fears it is to move over to a subscription payment model in the future. Until i read this feature, I was pleased Chaseplane is in the works. I think now i may reside to sticking with OpusFSI for my camera controls (EZDOK causes do many problems for me!)

Where has anyone said that the "only" storage was in the cloud?

If Chaseplane does not come with ground and in-air effects (RND, DHM, CR) to simulate shaking, turbulence or rolling effect during taxi it certainly will not replace EZDOK.

On their site

 

This is what it says on their site. 

 

"Every camera you create in ChasePlane is linked to your OldProp account and is saved In the Cloud. No need to export your presets anymore or to create new ones because you lost everything in a computer failure. As soon as you install ChasePlane and run it on your brand new computer, all your camera presets are loaded from the server and are ready to be used."

 

That does not translate to " It will only be stored in the cloud, "and you will not have any presets saved on your PC....... Like any other program that uses cloud storage, the backup of your presets would be stored in the cloud,so in case you lose them on your PC, you will have a backup file you can download. ....

If Chaseplane does not come with ground and in-air effects (RND, DHM, CR) to simulate shaking, turbulence or rolling effect during taxi it certainly will not replace EZDOK.

 

If you look carefully at the video I posted, it looks like there are menu items for this effects in the video.

Actually their latest update says:

Will camera presets be stored locally?
No, presets will be stored in the cloud and are downloaded when the application launches. Many applications are reliant on an Internet connection these days, it is the best way to ensure you never loose your presets. As long as you have access to the Internet when launching and closing the application, you are good to go.


The word "No" and needing to be online to be "good to go" is the key here.......
