Request - absolute camera position in VR
« on: February 01, 2019, 08:15:38 AM »
Hi,

I recently got myself into GP Bikes VR.
The potential is huge however I would like to make a request.

Would it be possible to have a parameter allowing us to set the camera into an "absolute" position.
The head movements would be in control of the cameras at all times.

Example:
When I'm using a VR heaset (seated on a chair) and I brake in GPB, the camera is moving as my head would do in real life even though my head didn't move because I am comfortably sitting.

In this case, I would like the camera to follow my non-motion and stay "fixed".

It should be pretty much the same for turns.

I would like to use this parameter in a motion simulator.

Thank you.

There are 3 views you can use, one of them is fixed and does not move as you describe, did you find this? There is still rider movement along with the bike leaning and pitching but no rider movement due to that momentum or your leans inputs.

Also any pics of your motion rig would be good to see  :)

Hi,

I think I know what Gibbon means, when the bike leans into the corner the camera perspective stays horizontal instead of leaning with the bike. I would really like to try a perspective that is locked to the bike and leans with it so the in-game bike and handlebar doesn't move away to the side and stays centered. I tried some things in the files already with mode=1, tried different settings in-game and all perspectives but I couldn't get such a perspective. I would like to make a Mixed Reality video at some point but for this I need a static perspective where only the head motion I do changes the perspective relative to the bike. Also it's quite hard to recognize how far the bike is leaning already when you are looking ahead the road because the camera stays the same all the time and also the bike is moving out of the perspective.
