      i feel this would be a really popular and useful mod if someone could make it

      people are already making movie type things with just cause 2
      with the mods coming, there will be a lot more going on in it and if there was a free camera like the one in the GTA IV Video editor, we could get a lot of good movies made

      If you look at the Just Cause 2 Antomy of a Stunt videos, you can see that the developers have the camera how im talking about

      Lets hope it’s in there for DLC, because I don’t think it’s possible to mod as you’d need to do a whole video editor.

      i’m sure they wouldnt put it in dlc, and there must be a way to mod a free camera in to it, they had one in, not the whole video editor but at least just a free cam to move around, maybe with the numpad

      Yeah, then we could finally make Just Cause 2 machinima!

      The movie in the first post is not using an in game camera it is a pure movie made solely for PR, there is no such camera to “enable” in game I’m sorry to say.

      mmm i guess, but maybe there could be some sort of mod… im hoping for it anyways

      I was wondering if someone could make a cinematic camera, if you look at this video.

      They use it a lot, when he lands with the parachute, or when he fires at the helicopter for example.

      There’s a similar camera in Fallout 3, Red Faction 1, and Mirror’s Edge. You control the camera, while the player stays still.

      Since there is renewed interest in this type of mod, I thought I’d
      bump this thread.

      I’m also going to attach a brief conversation between myself, Kaii, and fsxskymaster
      in the chat box discussing fsxskymaster’s ideas. I lost his kick-off question,
      but basically he asked if something like Kaii’s FPS mod could be adapted
      to bring in some free-roaming camera functionality…

      Yes – I know – what we’re talking about wouldn’t do what’s being done
      in the video above… That would be the ideal camera control.


      (Newest comment is at the bottom…)

      fsxskymaster : …I think it would still work. I got the first person superman mod for first person parachuting, the Bolopatch to hide the cross-hairs, and I turned the HUD transparency all the way up, so anything on the screen appeared invisible. Now if only I could control the camera more easily, I could make some awesome cinematics.

      Kaii : @fsxskymaster that’s actually the problem – camera control. There is no available way to change it. There are a fixed number of camera control styles and none of them adhere to what you are suggesting. I could be wrong, if you find a control style that works (perhaps swimming?), then the rest is a piece of cake.

      voxbox13 : @fsxskymaster – I was thinking about your request for a free-roaming camera… I don’t know if this is counter-intuitive to what you’re thinking but here’s an idea: It’s pretty easy to make the player character invisible. There is also already a mod to make holstered weapons invisible. Probably easy to make a helicopter or airplane invisible, too. Would this approach work for you?

      fsxskymaster : @voxbox13 Sure! Nice idea! :D My only concern would be the awkward camera position to the upper right of Rico. It might make swiveling and panning rather awkward feeling. I use the XBOX 360 Controller for Windows to play, just an FYI. Maybe if you used the centered camera swimming animation ‘through the air’ + invisible player + invisible weapons + a speedier swim with NO camera shake or wobble, you might have yourself a perfect cinematic-style free-roam camera! ^^



      I hope this gets some interest going in pursuing a camera mod for cinematics. ;)

      Hey guys!

      I know I haven’t posted on here in a while, but I have still been playing JC2 and downloading many of the awesome mods :)

      There is one mod however that I sorely need but cannot find and that is:

      A mod which allows me a free camera, esserentially disconnecting the camera from rico so that I can fly around the world and record some video for intros and stuff?

      Any mods that you think may achieve this or help achieve this are most welcome ;)

      Thanks for you help

      I merged your post, and a couple of others, into the one above.

      I hope someone will have success creating this!

      yes, this is sorely needed and is very annoyingly absent from the game…

      I think the invisible character idea could work with no HUD as even this level of availability would be much better than what there is currently :)

      thanks
