Video Tips and Tricks Help

Post by decaff_42 » Sat Oct 29, 2011 8:12 pm

Hey everyone, I'm looking for some help in making YSF videos.

I would like to hide or disable is the HUD when in all of the view options (F1 thru F9).

I've seen some videos where the camera in the F1 view moves around like the pilot was looking around. There is no HUD and the camera moves smoothly from side to side and they can zoom in.

Some relevant info:
I'm on a MacBook Pro running OS 10.6
2.4 GHz Intel i5 core
4GB RAM
I don't use a joystick, only keyboard and mouse

I'd appreciate any and all help with this problem.

I don't really know, there should be somewhere though a list of the YS controls.

In the main menu.
Option (O) >>> Config (C) >>> Game Rule

Unmark the check box that says "Always show HUD"

Pretty sure you would need a joystick to do this. Set your flying controls to your joystick and set your X and Y Axis Point of View to your mouse in the Key Assignment Menu.

You also may want to check out this tutorial by Kuro. He shows you how to get all the amazing shots and also answers your question.

Thanks a million Doomsday!
This seems to work for everything but the F1 view, but it will get me by until i get myself a joystick.
Any ideas why this doesn't work in the F1 view?

There is no way to turn off the HUD in F1 without modifying the aircraft's .dat file. (Perfectly possible, just takes a little work. (Involves making a blank instrument panel file and setting it to the specific aircraft.).)

Regarding looking around, if you record a flight, then change your control settings and watch the replay, it is perfectly possible to get the "looking around while flying" feel. The relevant controls are the View X-Axis and Y-Axis, under the joystick setting box.

As regard the looking around aspect of replays Kuro had a mouse utility that was called mouseheadlook.I couldn't find a link to it though but I know it exists cause I have it.You install it when you are doing replays for the eyeballing effect.It will not work in active play because it de-activates the joystick associations.

I took a brief look at Kuro's tutorials to get the general idea, but he mentioned having some software that helped him called YSCAMERA. It had a link, but it was completely in Japanese, and looked similar to other download links where the file is no longer available.

He also mentioned the Contrailer aircraft, which I have gotten, but he said you can edit it .dat file to make the contrails from sharp turns appear far enough away that they are off-screen.

"These can defiantly get in the way of filming and look very odd as they appear or come off of an invisible plane. Try accessing the .DAT file of the contrailer and position them very far away and you probably wont see them in the film if the contrailer happens to make a sharp turn."

I've looked around and couldn't find anything about the contrails in the tutorials here. Can someone show me the line in the .dat file that controls this feature so I can play around with it?

Thanks for all your help so far.

Via .Dat Variables
VAPORPO0 0.0m 0.0m 0.0m - The position (X, Y, Z) of the vapor trail.
VAPORPO1 0.0m 0.0m 0.0m - The position (X, Y, Z) of the vapor trail - movable (VGW) wings (f-14 etc..) When folded, the vapor trail comes from this position.
If you change the position to a few thousand meters, it will be out of view of the aircraft.

Thanks! I saw that tutorial and was looking for 'contrails' not 'vapor'. Thanks for the tip about the thousands of meters. I tried a couple of shots with 100m but it was still there and looked REALLY weird.

Be sure to scroll all the way down. The "better" view axis is hidden at the bottom.

What do you mean by 'better' view axis? something in the .dat file?

One gives you 90 degrees. The "better" one gives you 180. I can't remember which axis, though.

Not sure it's been mentionned, but last I checked you can set your axis viewing to mouse. It also works with the second thumbstick on controllers.

Yep. Just requires a joystick. I've posted about it many times. Search mouse x in the box at top of the page. You find it.

To move the view smoothly just hold the F8 button and move the mouse around. The camera moves just like flying.

I dont think you could use f8 zoom (f8 + spacce + mouse up/down) to make it appear as if you were in the cockpit.
