DCS cameras, views and video recording

Hi all! If anyone at DCS World by Eagle Dynamics could help us, DCS movie makers, with this little issue:

 

Since the release of 2.7, when using the LCtrl+F11 camera tool, I can't set my speed (using the mouse wheel) while being in pause, anymore... Now, I have to catch up with my planes each time I want to look for an angle and record a shot... This is a bit annoying unfortunately, and makes us loose some time and potential...

 

Any advice is welcome. Do you think it's something that we could get back on future updates?

Huge thanks for all the incredible work you've done so far! I personally can't wait to fly the Mossie!! Cheers from France ++

I reported this in the bugs forum. No response from ED yet.

Hi, I  learn how to make movie for my pleasure. When in F2 view for exemple, i want to move my camera with the numpad (4, 6, ...) around the plane, but the speed of the displacement is too high. I tried to modify parameters in view.lua file in saved games, but nothing change. Have you an idea ?

I'm interested in this too. Wags, Jabbers, and all the other big-name content creators are somehow able to slowly and smoothly rotate around their aircraft in F2 view. I cannot find any way to do it with the same speed or smoothness, and of course the creators themselves will not give up their secrets.

Not sure if this will do what you want, but just this morning I discovered "Wingman Camera" LAlt-F4. A quick search didn't show anyone had posted about it yet.

 

I don't know how long it's been there, but after playing around with it for a short time, I am very enthusiastic about it.

This feature sounds awesome but unfortunately causes my DCS to crash

(hehe)

Re: Slow camera movements. I'm trying to see if it's possible to use a gamepad for camera controls. I lent my TrackIR to a friend years back (VR!) and am only now realising that I can't quite get videos the same way. Doing the best I can despite the limitations but still...

Anyone know what file and line restricts the F11 free cam zoom distance?

And does anyone know how to add control binding options to modules?
I'd like to see zoom on an axis instead of buttons.

It's possible, Look for "keyboard rate" (slow/normal/fast) in the search box. There's also a "mouse rate"

You can set a "zoom view" axis in the "axis command" drop down menu of each aircraft

I may have stumbled upon a new keybind. When in F4 view, after slewing the camera with mouse/num keys, pressing LAlt+F2 will disable mouse panning, making it more secure against accidental mouse bumps while recording.
