    Hello,
    I did not need so many 1st person view, so I changed the Action cam to a Heli view. This is a modified Swingman from a higher altitude.

    Now I can see a large part of the track, but I don't see my car. My car is cropped to the front bumper or invisible at all.
    It happens so, because the Action Cam is a 1st person view. Heli view is 3rd person.
    If I replace the 3rd person Swingman with the Heli view, my car is visible. But I need Swingman.

    Should I change any parameter in the camera definition to see the whole car?
    or should I search for camera definitions in an another file? Where?
    A file that assigns 1st or 3rd person view to the camera names.

    LocalCam=ACTIONCAM
    {
    Fov=(72.500000, 62.000000)
    Clear=FALSE
    Color=(164, 218, 249)
    ClipPlanes=(1.000000, 2500.000000)
    LODMultiplier=(1.005508)
    Size=(1.000000, 1.000000)
    Center=(0.500000, 0.500000)
    MipmapLODBias=(0.000000)
    Flags1=(0)
    Flags2=(0)
    RadiusLimits=(0.000000, 0.000000)
    OrientationRate=(360.0000, 4.0000, 0.000000)
    PositionOffset=(0.000000, 25.000000, 50.00) // left - right, height, length
    OrientationOffset=(270.0, 0.0, 0.00) // rake, roll, yaw
    Radius=(0.000000)
    }

    Nice way to view a replay but I wouldn't want to drive in that view.

    This is for viewing new and modified tracks, to see if there are any lacking or misplaced objects and textures.
    One more view could be good for arcade driving if the whole car was visible.
    Race 07 automatically applies cropped car view when it reads ACTIONCAM.
    Only SWINGMAN displays the whole car, but there cannot be two SWINGMAN entries.
