Joycam 0.3.1

No permission to download
This is an app to allow you to control the free camera in Assetto Corsa like a drone. You can use it with any XInput controller, typically XBox 360 or newer.


Default controls are:
Left stick - move forward and yaw
Right stick - move sideways and pitch
Triggers - move up and down
Dpad - roll
You can adjust this in config.ini

Extract contents of 7z to the folder assettocorsa\apps\python\stereo_joycam. Typically the full path is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\assettocorsa\apps\python\stereo_joycam\ but depends on your Steam install.
In the 'General' tab in Assetto Corsa, enable the app.

Push Activate in the app to switch to free camera mode.
Or Enable the free camera in system/cfg/assetto_corsa.ini by setting ALLOW_FREE_CAMERA=1, and hit F7 in game to switch to the free camera.

To adjust settings, find 'stereo_joycam' on the app pane (far right) and click to open the app.

CONFIG.INI (in app folder):
Controls -
available options are
l_thumb_x, l_thumb_y - x and y of left thumb stick

Latest reviews

Default settings need to be adjusted slightly and an option to zoom in/out with the controller would be nice, but overall it’s a really good app for smooth camera movements!
How can I have the left stick not have up and down movement but to only control the lateral movements?

I would like the rightstick to have y, x and Z movement it would be it easier to control. (like a drone)

Sorry for the noob question.
interesting! However, when I try to assign a function to the Bumper button, it doesn't work. Unusable button? Bumper left and right buttons.
「move roll = bumpers」
It calls that 'rblb', it's in the readme but is there a better place to write that?
Works as advertised. I just spent longer than I'd care to admit just following some AI cars around LA Canyons, and it was magical. This is a mod I didn't know I needed and now can't be without.
had to swap the yaw and lateral movents to make it easier to fly around works perfect after this is what i changed
move_lateral = l_thumb_x
rotate_yaw = r_thumb_x
Is it possible to somehow use this app with a ps4 controller ?
Do something like this to make it work for xinput
Do I have to use it with JoyStick?
Because it shows only activate (the camera) and not the other stuff
Works great
i've seen the app and i like it, but i downloaded it and followed the instructions and the app doesn't work. when i open it on assetto corsa, the window with the "activate" button pops up but there's no configuration available, like in the photo of this post, and i can't move the camera even pressing the activate button or f7.
i hope you could help me.
easy and slick
not working with my wired xbox one controller. (tried it with having my wheel and shifter plugged in while trying to use the app and tried it without, no success)
does this work with a ps4 controller
Great tool for videomaking, thank you very much for creating this! :) My only gripe is the roll axis being linked to yawing with non-level pitch (so basically, if you're looking up or down, the camera will always tilt/roll while turning left or right, which cannot be easily countered during smooth panning shots)

If you're still looking for feature suggestions, I'd love a way to bind either FOV (zoom) or DOF Distance to different inputs.
The app already maps all inputs available via python, unfortunately FOV is not settable. Also why I can't really fix the roll/pitch thing - there's no way for the app to know what the current camera orientation is so I can't make it autolevel or anything.
Outstanding. Mapped it to be a bit more intuitive (in my opinion. Move with left stick, look with right). Best photo app I've come across, works a lot like Forza photomode which has become standard now :) No chance to dial out the roll when yawing and looking around though?
Its almost a year since the first update, really great app. But i would like to give you some suggestions

1. Enable zoom camera
2. Please fix this, when my camera i pointing downwards and i turn the yaw, the camera rolled, which is a bit annoying to me

Aside from that, thank you for your great app :)
Work for Me! Thanks!!!
Doesn't work too :/
Not working
Not easy to control, but awsome tool for videos. I will try to handle it haha.
Just AMAZING ! I love you for doing this mod, so worth it. Will be so easier with making montages. Thank you :)
Only just found this app as it was mention on the AC forum. Stereo, You are the best. This and odometer are a must have.
i have an issue, but for the 20 minutes it worked it was perfect, so i'm giving 5 stars.
very nice... idea !!!
Awesome idea. Is it possible to add a boost for the drone which you can activate with an extra button?
I didn't try it yet but im gonna comment anyway.
If i see the other comments it has to be a good mod. Plus this is something that i was waiting for since i first bought AC! THANKS

Some guys including me from ACRL (Assetto Corsa Racing League) are doing some Best-OF Videos after each race, I'm currently working with your mod, such a huge camera improvement!
I'll send you a link when im finished if I don't forget :D
Great job, awesome app. When i was using this app, i got small idea... Is it possible to record "drone" path to example .csv file and then use it as replay camera spline? ;)
Good question... I think it's possible but couldn't be very userfriendly, cause the app doesn't know the initial direction the camera's facing. So you'd have no way to line it up with the track.

If you just want generic ones like "5m up" that Kunos makes those are more doable, you could just disable the yaw/pitch/roll controls and log the changes in position. I'm not actually sure what the timestep between lines in the spline is though.
Awesomely Superb!!! Now if only you could add a Helicopter Camera Autopilot feature... lol
Thanks so much for making this app. This is going to open up so many opportunities for content creators, i'm sure that with this app Assetto Corsa will turn into a much bigger creative outlet!
Great stuff again from you Stereo! Cant wait to try it for a new video.
