Active Camera 2.0

Hi,

I just installed Active Camera but unfortunately I can't figure out how to walk around the virtual cabin. The plane I am flying does support a virtual cabin but I just can't see how you're meant to move around. I've pressed the numpad keys 8, 4, 6 and 2 with numlock on and off but they only change the view. I've also messed around with the options in Options->Active Camera but so far I can't use this program for anything at all!

Thanks in advance for any help, JTH!

Start a flight, press the ALT key, goto OPTOINS the ACTIVE CAMERA and check what I've got on the screen

You then should be able move around in the cabin.

Thanks Liano, I've ticked all the options you've said but I still can't move around using the keys it lists in the "keys" section. Can anyone help? Thanks.

You can do the right thing and pay for the key.

You can see your craft from any angle or distance you like by using the Alt,Shift and Scroll buttons.Its easy to use and helps to get excellent screenshots.Im very satisfied from it. 😉

Well I found out the commands for 'F1 view' and for anyone else who's interetsed here they are:

Virtual-cockpit:

Wheel forward moves you forward and wheel backward moves you back.
CTRL+forward moves right and CTRL+backward moves left.
SHIFT+forward moves up and SHIFT+backward moves down.
CTRL+SHIFT+forward zooms out and CTRL+SHIFT+backward zooms in.
While in Pan Mode (when mouse wheel is pressed and held down) inside the Virtual Cockpit:

Moving the mouse to the left rotates the view to the left.
Moving the mouse to the right rotates the view to the right.
Moving the mouse forward, away from the user, rotates the view up.
Moving the mouse backward, towards the user, rotates the view down.
Cockpit view:

CTRL+SHIFT+forward zooms the exterior view out and CTRL+SHIFT+backward zooms it in.
Tower view:

CTRL+SHIFT+forward zooms the view out and CTRL+SHIFT+backward zooms it in.
Spot view:

Wheel forward moves the view distance forward, and wheel backward moves the distance back.
CTRL+forward rotates the eyepoint right, and CTRL+backward rotates the eyepoint left.
SHIFT+forward moves the eyepoint down, and SHIFT+backward moves the eyepoint up.
CTRL+SHIFT+forward zooms out and CTRL+SHIFT+backward zooms in.
Note: View distance is different from view zoom.

While in Pan Mode (when mouse wheel is pressed and held down) in spot view:

Mouse left/right rotates the eyepoint right/left.
Mouse up/down moves the eyepoint up/down.
Top-down view:

CTRL+SHIFT+forward moves the view distance out and CTRL+SHIFT+backward moves it in.

Unfortuantly, it dosent do the job I thought it would do. It just makes your mouse cursor act as a POV hat, which I already have on my joystick. When you said 'you can see your craft from any angle or distance' I thought you could like go up to the tail and zoom in close but it still keeps the aircraft in the centre of the screen unlike active camera! Crying or Very sad I guess you get what you pay for. What I am trying to do is get a screenshot with my aircraft in the side of the shot but in the centre of the screen have my scenery as the main feature!

Ah well, thanks for the link anyways greekman![/quote]
