To deal with the management of cameras in EEP in a single article is impossible because the subject is vast!

The possibilities offered are numerous and several processes, from the simplest to the most complex, can be put into practice to bring maximum realism to your future projects.

Basically, you should know that EEP manages three different types of cameras :

  1. Static cameras : they have the particularity of being fixed and motionless and always representing the same panorama (road junction, tunnel exit, etc.),
  2. Dynamic cameras : they are also fixed but unlike static cameras, they also follow the movement of any object, such as a vehicle, for example,
  3. Mobile cameras : these cameras are attached to a dedicated rail (visible in edit mode and invisible in operating mode), which allows them to move to follow an object or simply explore part of your network depending on the places you like.

As you can see, they each have their own particularity. You will choose one or the other according to your needs or your desires.

Four articles are needed to study and implement the different camera mechanisms in EEP:

  1. Camera selection :this article will introduce you to the different camera perspectives, tracking mode, cameras linked to rolling stock, full screen mode, etc.
  2. Camera editing : ( coming soon ) you will learn how to place new static or dynamic cameras, save them, rename them, delete them or even modify the classification of cameras.
  3. Camera contact points : ( coming soon ) Once your cameras are recorded, you can manipulate them like any other object via the dedicated camera contact points.
  4. Cameras and Lua : ( coming soon ) this article will show you how to control your cameras through a Lua script and the functions reserved for this purpose.
