Re: View Groups Tutorial for P3D v3.3

Postby tjolivet » Thu Oct 26, 2017 4:54 pm

Folks,

The DropBox link below leads to a PDF document I wrote with a tutorial for setting up and using View Groups in the new v3.3 release. The tutorial is reasonably deep -- it covers set up all the way down to creating individual ViewFrustrums (you'll know what those are if you read the tutorial) for a 3-monitor setup and provides some hints for tuning.

Any feedback or corrections would be much appreciated!

Hi,

I too would love to get hold of this tutorial, but the dropbox link no longer works. Could someone who already has it please provide another link?

Many thanks,

Mick

Thank you for re- posting the tutorial -

However, I think something is still not right with the relationship between the overall (P3D V4) Zoom parameter and the way the FOV side angles relate. I've followed the instructions (using 40" HD monitors), but just can't seem to get the proper perspective - notably the poor transition of the horizon and runway lines from the center monitor to the side monitor(s). Changing "allow zoom" doesn't seem to make any difference. WTH?

Am I missing something?

Hello,

This post is for v3. Now that the requested link has been reposted, I am locking this thread. Please create a new post detailing the problems you are encountering in v4.
