Dual monitor nvidia surround, how to lateral offset?

Postby mmerelles » Sun Sep 03, 2017 10:25 pm


I am new to the platform, having issues to properly calibrate the virtual cockpit view.

I do own an Nvidia card having 2 x 27" monitors bizzel corrected under surround configuration resolution 3910x1080

When i go to Prepar3d the camera is aiming centered to the 2 monitors, feels like i am sitting on the center of the aircraft (GA / Jetliner), it cuts aircraft critical pilot displays in two like PFD.
Moving the eyeview to the left does not cure the problem, you start going as crabbed.

How do i can offset the camera aiming point to recenter it to the left monitor (as if i were running only one monitor), i am also sitting centered on the left monitor on the room.

Hope i was being able to properly explain the issue and requirement.

There are many advanced camera configuration options explained in the SDK section of the Learning Center: http://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv4/LearningCenter.php

Also Custom Cameras can be created through the context menu allowing you to see adjustments in real time.
