CamTool 2 1.16 x64

Animate camera / Custom replays

  1. kasperski95
    App designed to create cinematic shots and custom replays.
    Note
    • This app hacks into memory of Assetto Corsa to gain control over camera, thus with every AC update this app also need to be updated.
    • I created this app when I didn't have proper knowledge about programming. In replay mode you can notice FPS drop. If FPS drop is unacceptable, consider recording in slow motion and speeding up video later to improve quality of your cinematic shots.
      • If you are recording in slow motion, maximize your graphics settings.

    Documentation

    • General
      • Activate free camera (visible only if free camera is disabled)
        Gain control over kunos' free camera. Use arrows to move camera. Use arrow with shift to slow down the movement. Use right mouse button to look around.
        alt + left mouse button to look around smoothly
        alt + shift to zoom in
        alt + ctrl to zoom out
      • Buttons below camera icon
        • +
          Create camera (max 99)
        • -
          Remove last camera
        • <number>
          Camera. If the button is bolded, it means when the app is enabled this camera will be active. If background is red, all settings are applied to this camera. Cameras are sorted based on theirs activation value (Camera | Activation | Camera In). Cameras works only in location mode (read description of Pin and Timer buttons).
      • Buttons below keyframe (diamond) icon
        • +
          Add keyframe (max 99)
        • -
          Remove keyfrane
        • <number>
          Keyframe. Go to Pin and Timer buttons for more information. Can be set by clicking:
          [<<][<][this button][>][>>]
      • Pin and Timer buttons
        If pin button is enabled, interpolation between keyframes will be calculated based on active car location (location mode) on track. This mode is useful, if you want to create custom replay cameras. You can choose active car in Tracking menu or by using following shortcuts:
        ctrl + numpad 1 - previous car
        ctrl + numpad 2 - your car
        ctrl + numpad 3 - next car
        If timer button is enabled, interpolation between keyframes will be calculated based on replay time (time mode). This mode is useful, if you want to create cinematic shots of standing car. Before mode can be used, application must synchronize with a replay which should take one second (app must detect quality of replay).
      • On/Off button
        If enabled, app takes control over camera. If you press and hold alt you will smoothly regain control over camera.
      • [<<][<][frame button][>][>>]
        If background is red, represents a value of selected keyframe.
        If background is gray, represents location of active car or replay's frame based on active mode (read description of Pin and Timer buttons).
        Arrow buttons change active keyframe value or replay's time whether keyframe is assigned or not.
    • Camera
      • Activation | Camera In
        Works only in location mode.
        If active car position is greater than this value and less than value of next keyframe, this camera will be active. Check provided examples (Spa or Redbull Ring) how to deal with car crossing start / finish line situations.
      • Activation | Pit only
        Camera will be enabled, if car is closer to Pit spline than Track spline. Check Settings: Pit spline and Settings: Track spline for more.
      • Camera | Focus point
        Disabled when autofocus is enabled.
      • Camera | Autofocus
      • Camera | FOV
        alt + shift to zoom in
        alt + ctrl to zoom out
      • Shake | Camera
      • Shake | Tracking
        camera shaking while tracking a car. Faster camera rotates, camera shakes more.
    • Transform
      • Location | X, Y, Z
      • Location | Strength
        If camera is also controlled by spline, this value determines how to mix two animations together
      • Rotation | Pitch, Roll, Heading
      • Rotation | Strength
        If camera is also tracking a car a or is controlled by spline, this value determines how to mix transform settings with other.
    • Tracking
      • Tracking | Active car
        Cannot be animated.
      • Tracking | Mix
      • Tracking | Extra car
        Cannot be animated.
      • Offset | Tracking
        If value is negative, camera will be focusing on point in front of the tracking car.
        If value is positive, camera will be focusing on point behind of the tracking car.
      • Offset | Pitch, Heading
      • Strength | Pitch, Heading
        If camera is also controlled by spline, this value determines how to mix tracking animation with a spline.
    • Spline
      • Record
        Records camera's location and rotation (choose proper camera for recording)
      • Speed
      • Strength | Location XY, Location Z, ...
      • Offset | Pitch, Heading, Location Z
      • Offset | Location X
        Offset will be relative to the path.
      • Offset | Spline
    • Settings
      • Save/Load

    Issues

    • FPS drop in replays /* not sure why it works fine in "live" mode */
    • Audio popping when camera changes

      I will wait a week. I had fixed the app for the 1.16 version, but Kunos released 1.16.1 patch few hours later.

    And if you look at the second video: When the cars are filmed from the left or right, you see a decent Jojo - Effect. This is not acceptable which makes the app useless.
