View Full Version : patent pending - smart pan

ok, the patent is fake, dont sue me


I was thinking instead of panning the camera by X degrees in all directions, why not pan from the front windshield to:

if you press left - to the left windshield
if you press right- to the right widnshield
if you press down - a clear view of the instruments

my point is, to avoid having the player switch between little intervals, but instead to just snap view from one logical view point to another

of course there is track ir...but whatever...you nay sayers http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

What the hell are you talking about?

Sounds like NewView to me - available from Airwarfare. You can set buttons to go to pre-set views and scan the sky, quickly pan down to view instruments and back, check your mirror...bit of a pig to set up, and interferes with the mouse view, but it has potential...

Newview is nice, once you figure it out.
You can use it to do lots of different things.

My big problem with it was, if I hit a microstutter, it would snap the veiw frward, a real pain if I was tracking a target.
