Plugin Description

This is a plugin that I have been working on for a while that allows various camera views to be set up.

Using the camera with our SDK is very straight forward.
The SDK part accounts for less that 5% of the work.
What takes the time and effort is camera management and the math that is required.

This plugin supports all the camera types and also the other aircraft can be viewed as well.
You can have 20 cameras and the state of these can be saved.
The plugin will also work in replay mode.

It uses a control widget that allows you to select the type of camera.
You can also position the camera in the, x, y,  z and zoom.
The attitude of the camera in the Pitch, Roll and Heading can also be controlled. (I am still working on this as it is not right)
All of these can be in steps of one or continuous slewing depending on the check box selection.
You can automatically cycle through the 20 cameras with whatever delay you have set.

It is still under development as I have quite a few things still ticking over in my head that I want to add.
Scroll down the page to seem some pics and movies.
The interface has changed since these movies were taken.

Mac Downloads.

On Safari and some browsers they may append .txt to the end of the file.
Just rename the file so that it is removed.
e.g. VirtualCamera.ini.txt to  VirtualCamera.ini
