NEWS! - Plugin Released : ProCam XP by Aerosoft

The built in X-Plane (keypad) views system is quite powerful if you know how to use it, including some silly tricks to go through the wall boundaries with the internal view. But for video editors they require something far more powerful and a more flexible tool to use.

 

The default go to tool currently is X-Camera by StickAndRudder Studio's and that sells for US$15. And it is powerful, but also has a complicated user interface, but there is a free version in that you can't save the settings for the advanced features, in meaning you can't save your views, which is a big handicap unless you buy the Pro version.

There were however a few other camera/view tools available, DynamicCam, IZICam and lately ChaseView Deluxe.

 

But the overwhelming issue was always the complicated interface. So now Aerosoft in association with FSS-FlightSim Studio's have released a new Camera plugin in ProCam XP that has a more accessible interface.

 

You can create stunning tracking shots in and around your own aircraft or in the scenery of your choice, and also uses effects such as simulated breathing to create a realistic pilot view. For the developer, they can also create ready-made presets for custom scenery views and show customers the best spots in their product. In other words it is a global view system and not just restricted to Aircraft.

 

Features:
  • Presets for cockpit, exterior and world category
    • Optional 3D camera object in cockpit/exterior
    • Presets for XP default aircraft included
  • Different view types
    • Cockpit: static
    • Cockpit: human
    • Cockpit: cam
    • Exterior: static
    • Exterior: cam
    • World: fixed
    • World: free
    • World: follow aircraft
  • Manual camera control
    • Key combination / joystick / controller mapping are possible
  • Various effects
    • Head rotation based on control inputs
    • Simulated breathing (pilot view)
    • Gimbal control (horizon/tilt)
  • Invisible clickspots
    • Individual clickspot overlay setup
  • Cinema Mode for each aircraft size category
  • Presets can be included in add-on sceneries
  • Cinema presets can be included in add-on sceneries
 
Notable is that ProCam is Windows only at this point as the MacOS operating system is currently not supported, and If you are also using OpenGL, there may be an offset when placing the 3D camera object.
 
 
I really like the idea of putting your own GoPro camera on the aircraft, and anywhere you want to position it, clever!
 
This is the simplified interface...

If you are a ProVideo maker, it is probably worth checking out...

Just bought this and am mystified.  The manual seems to be written for mindreaders and what I've done so far is delete it and go back to the XP camera.  I've queried Aerosoft support but nothing yet so, if you have any insights such as "what, if anything, to do in XP keyboard settings" "the little four item menu (interior/exterior/world/cinema) how's that supposed to go?  Any insights would be appreciated.

Yes I'm doing a ProCam XP review now...  trying to work it out as well, as noted the manual is pathetic, and there is no video tutorial, but I'm working on it 🙂

Great Stephen... I did the same as olderndirt. 

Deleted it from my system, and have been waiting for at least 2 weeks for them to respond.

 

PS - The ProCam XP manual states:

 

Support
Support for this product is offered by Aerosoft. We prefer to have a support forum for the simple reason that it is fast and
efficient because customers help customers when we are not in the office:forum.aerosoft.com
And we advise the Scenery section in the XPlane subforum for any questions on this product. This should be your first stop for
any support. If you prefer support by email, please do accept that this could take a bit longer as it might be sent from person to
person if necessary, and that email support during the weekends is always slow:
helpdesk.aerosoft.com/portal/home
We feel strongly about support. Buying one of our products gives you the right to waste our time with questions you feel might
be silly. They are not.

 

They're wrong... It's my time that has been wasted. haha
