Camera widgets and setups

Post by PtaQ » 18 Feb 2018, 19:54

Guys, are there any useful widgets for controlling camera ingame for making nice cinematic shots in videos? What are you using for that? I know of COFC camera widget, but it lacks some features I would like to use.

What I'm esp. looking for is:
- smooth rotation (now you can only do it dragging the mouse which is unprecise).
- following the selected unit using an arbitrary angle of camera (currently cofc doest allow for camera follow)

A the moment it is very very basic - you can set keyframes and then the camera moves between them in linear interpolation. (make sure you turn off smoothcam if you have it on).
You can also use it record extremely accurate no-lag 60 fps but with no sound.
Things like tracking a unit could definitely be added.
