Modifiable POV

Postby Nash » Mon Jul 25, 2005 10:22 pm

I'm not sure if it's possible, there might be complex calculations that have to be done to make this possible, but someone posted an idea about being able to modify the player's point of view (POV) and I think it's a good idea.

Do you think this is feasible and can produce any benefits?

yes, but I'm sure this thread'll be red soon

Edit by QBasicer:
I don't see anything wrong with this thread. It's up to Randy to look at all feature suggestions and do as he wishes after that.

@QBasicer: Could you start using the Post instead of editing other posts

hey this'll be pretty good for cutscenes! like you could see through a cyberdemon's pov to make it look like the cyberdemon is talking to the player or something.

you could use a cunningly placed camera for that.

yes, or even better have it so that the monster isn't in the room with the player, and make another room with the monster in but not the player. Then you switch between cameras at the correct height and won't have to worry about the actor being in the way.

i've got a better idea, place the camera behind the thing, to make it look like it's viewing the player (or monster) from the back.
