NOW ON GITHUB!
I’m really excited to finally be getting to show you some tech me and my friend Matt have been working on. It is one of the things we are most proud of for sure. Check out the video to see a early version of it. Let me know below if you are interested! Here are some of the features it currently supports, along with some of the things we’ll be working on getting in.
Here is a video of a demo of our system:
Here is a video of a good dynamic camera system from a game i’m sure most of you have heard of: (and where we would like our camera system to be)
Currently Implemented Features: Camera Dynamics And Blending
- Yaw, Pitch, and Distance Ranges
Control how much the camera will rotate or how close/far the character/targets will get before moving.
- Horizontal and Vertical Offset Ranges
Frame the target in a specific part of the screen, focusing the player’s attention on anything you want by framing it in view!
- Fov Control for Zooming in/out
Zoom in and out using Fov
- Blending Control
Control how quickly or slowly or how much a Virtual Camera will blend.
- Blueprint Integration
Use our Blueprint API to hook up Virtual Cameras to scripted events, attacks, or special custom triggers.
- Blending Management
Our blending system seemlessly blends between Virtual Cameras, giving proper dynamic behavior.
- Camera on Rails
- Complete Dynamic Camera Template Project
- Group Zoning
- Various Custom Virtual Cameras (timed blend, distance based blend, triggered blend example)
- Tutorials going over different camera situations (walls, going through door, etc).
We also need to figure out exactly how we are going to release it (depending on interest?/dev grant?)
Thanks for checking it out!
