    FSX camera transition problem

    The previous setting had been made in the aircraft's aircraft.cfg file. In the user's C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX\camera.cfg camera settings there are two standard cameras with Transition=Yes: Locked spot Spot It shows how transition should work. If you change in that file to Transition=False then no transition will be made, the two views are changed without transition. [CameraDefinition.004] Title = Locked Spot Guid = {BCA3FDD1-FB83-4BBA-8407-4922A7F0D00D} Description = This is the description of the spot view. Origin = Center SnapPbhAdjust = Swivel SnapPbhReturn = False PanPbhAdjust = Swivel PanPbhReturn = False Track = FlatChaseLocked ShowAxis = No AllowZoom = Yes InitialZoom = 1.0 SmoothZoomTime = 2.0 ShowWeather = Yes XyzAdjust = FALSE Transition = Yes ShowLensFlare=TRUE Category = Outside ClipMode = Spot PitchPanRate=30 HeadingPanRate=75 PanAcceleratorTime=0 xHotKeySelect=3

    FSX camera transition problem

    Yes, I also tried that. However I try to do it without EZdoc. If you check the document I created and referred to in my initial post, you see that many of the EZDoc features can be created without 3rd party product. Both approaches have their pros and cons. Now I am looking for a solution without EZdok. Based on the official documentation it should work. UPDATE: EZdok is unfortunatelly not maintained smoothly, that's why several users don't want to pay the rather high price for it.
  3. Hi, Earlier I posted here a document about how to create cameras without any 3rd party program in FSX. It works fine, and I nly have problems with the "transition" property of the cameras. Based on description of the property: "When switching between camera views a “smooth” transition is obtained by moving the camera in real time from its old location to the new one. Note that this behavior is only applied if the Transition settings for both cameras are set to yes. If either or both are set to No then the view switch is instantaneous." My experience is that if I set the property to "Yes" on both cameras, there will be no smooth transition, but an unexpected interim view is added for a fraction of seconds. It seems, it is always points to the central point of the aircraft (for me the fuel selector between the pilot seats) and the zoom factor seems to be the zoom level of the tartet view. I link two short videos about the transitions (the interim image is not always visible on the video due to the short time): Video with Transition=No Video with Transition=Yes Sample for the transition image My camera definitions look like the following: [CameraDefinition.20] Title = Pilot #1 Guid = {44682264-60A8-4C60-9EC4-3780025FA8AC} Description = This is the description of the virtual cockpit view. Origin = Virtual Cockpit MomentumEffect = Yes SnapPbhAdjust = Swivel SnapPbhReturn = False PanPbhAdjust = Swivel PanPbhReturn = False Track = None ShowAxis = YES AllowZoom = TRUE InitialZoom = 0.4 SmoothZoomTime = 5.0 ZoomPanScalar = 2.0 ShowWeather = Yes XyzAdjust = TRUE ShowLensFlare=FALSE Category = Custom PitchPanRate=30 HeadingPanRate=15 PanAcceleratorTime=0 Transition=Yes HotKeySelect=1 Does anyone has some similar experience? Could it be some interference with other settings? Environment: Windows 8.1 FSX UIAutomationCore.dll is replaced to avoid crashes on Win8 Gabor
  4. Hi, I put together a document about custom camera view configuration in FSX. I use only standard FSX functionality still I believe I could reach a quality that is comparable with payware solutions. Main advantages: Does not require payware components Does not influence FSX’s standard hotkey and joystick handling Does not introduce a new module that might not be fully stable Keeps the default Top-Down view that seems not to be available with EzDok Keeps the aircraft centric camera movement that seems not to be available with EzDok Disadvantages of the solution: No extra fancy effects Maximum 10 hotkey triggered camera views Less convenient, less automatic view creation Download the document from the link below. Please give your corrections, recommendations for improvements. G. Hrasko: Camera configuration in FSX (v09 draft) http://gabor.hrasko.com/fsx-camera-views-v09.pdf Disclaimer: EzDok is a brilliant product. If it works for you, don't change it to my solution. However if you experinence problems, incompatibilities (due to newer op systems or to other 3rd party products), you might give a try to my standard-based solution.
