How to set up one tracked cam and I fixed cam in DE edition?

Studio Operators Composer 3D Scene Editing Unreal

 

Hello,

I have a scene setup with a tracked cam in DE edition and if I want to add a fixed cam, how can I align the size with the new cam? Seems I cannot adjust the STUDIO setup to match both, this way will mess up the scene. I tried to move the origin but I cannot scale the the size. 

Any way to setup in a logical way?

Thanks!

Hello,

We suggest using the MixedCam compound. It enables mixed usage of virtual and tracked cameras. In order to use it please add Mixed camera to your Unreal scene.

Thank you very much.

I would like to know if there is a way to set the FOV of the virtual cam? the virtual cam is a wide angle lens and I need a normal lens.

Thanks!

Hello,

you can use the tracked Cam Compount aswell. Just type in the position of your non Tracked Cam in the Basecamtransform and use Manual Lensdata.

Thank you for your reply F_Mueller!

I tried this way and would like to know if there is any way to align the size of the main subject. Now I am doing it just by eyeballing, and everyone is asking "are you sure this size is correct?" so I tried to align in studio mode and then mess up the scene.

Hello,

You can set FoV for the virtual camera. You can find the camera controls in this documentation: https://aximmetry.com/learn/tutorials/for-studio-operators/camera-mover-mouse-control/#aximmetry-mode
Use space+wheel / space+left mouse drag button to change FoV.

Thank you!

Just a bit more... ... Is there any method I can type in a FOV value? Just keep asking by someone.

Hi,

Unfortunately you can never be sure what the proper FOV is, because no lens gives you proper information about it. So we for example always "eye ball" it or measure it with lens calibration.

However if you want to set it manually you can do it in case of tracked camera. INPUTS control board/ INPUT 1 box/ Manual Lens and Manual Zoom properties.

This is in a tricky unit called Zoom Factor. You can use the FOV Calculator module to calculate this value from the information you have. Just insert one anywhere, type the parameters and read the value using the peek function. (Ctrl + mouse hover)

Best Regards
