About CameraPlus

CameraPlus is dedicated to all movie makers. It is a simple but powerful WoW addOn to make accurate and smoothy WoW movies!

With CameraPlus you can switch into 'Movie mode' by selecting a binded key. When this movie mode is engaged, user defined specific WoW UI parts - like names, chat bubbles, combat texts... - can be shown or hidden and camera movements speed can be adjusted, so soft panoramic camera movements can be created at the desired speed.

    - keys can be binded to continuous horizontal or vertical camera rotations
    - keys can be binded to continuous zoom in and out
    - adjustable rotation and zoom speed (settings UI)
    - version 3 allows to increase or decrease on the fly the yaw, pitch and zoom speeds while in 'movie environment'

Furthermore, even out of the 'movie environment', CameraPlus increases the maximum camera distance from 15 to 25 yards.
Settings are available from the addons settings panel.
Open the standard shortcut panel (keybindings) and bind keys for CameraPlus.

Remember to engage the movie environment to make your changes effective.
When you leave the movie environment, settings are reset to their previous values, except of course the out of 'movie environment' settings.
If some of your settings are lost, for example target circle is no longer visible, just click on the "Reset to defaults" button in the settings UI.
To increase or decrease on the fly the yaw, pitch and zoom speeds while in movie environment, spamm the binded keys: each key up increase or decrease the desired speed by 10% or the actual value.

Warning: this addon doesn't create any video file!

Please see the included ReadMe text file for more infos.

    great addon,

    why not use the function ToggleFrame(UIParent )  to hide the ui (equivalent to alt+z)?

    It will hide some special frame ( weak aura, spell flash)?

    sorry for my english

    i dont know who i would go to, but seeing as how this one is in depth with the camera i was wondering if some one could come up with a horizontal camera "Over-The-Shoulder" mod. (addon)

  • #49

    No, CameraPlus only manage manual camera movements.


  • #48

    Can this be used to slow down the camera Auto Follow speed?

  • #47

    I find this addon confusing and perlexing

    Great addon! - results using this addon.

    Still a great addon, keep working on it!

    Used it to create this WoW video:

    Is this addon still getting updated for new releases?

    It seems all machinima addons and programs just quit updating... :(

    CameraPlus is compatible with the current WoW version.

  • #45

    It was enabled. Disabled and enabled it again and now it is working! Thanks for the advice

    Strange :(

    I reinstalled. It is loaded (with message: out of date), but it isn't working. None of the options from the readme and description are there.

    Do you know of any addons that might cause problems with cameraplus?

    Be sure to check "load out of date addons".

    If CameraPlus is correctly loaded, you should see a message in your main chat window at startup or every time you reload your interface.

    Just an idea:

    Could it be possible to add a cinematic Camera? You know... that the camera isn't right behind the character but right behind over its right or left shoulder? That would be very cool for some dramatic moments!

  • #38

    Version 3.11 should fix this problem.

  • #39

    You are awesome, I'll try it tonight. Thanks!

    Edit: Works perfectly! Prints out some odd stuff to the chat pane, but doesn't seem to cause any issues. Thanks!

    Has anyone taken over this add or replicated it? I just found it and it's perfect for quickly removing names for screen shots. The only issue is that pet names still remain, most likely due to some changes in how pets are handled with the new pet battles.

    Edit: Just to be clear, by "pets" I mean vanity companion/battle pets, not hunter pets. They have their own check box in the standard interface UI now: Critters and Companions.
