Here's a new program for editing track cameras. The motivation for writing it was that other editors are limited in the number of cameras they can handle, which was a problem for long tracks.

Hopefully it's reasonably self-explanatory, but I'll mention a couple of things.

It turned out to be more convenient to have a 'Switch Longitude' field instead of a 'Switch Offset' field, which is what the .CAM file actually contains.

The template camera which you can use to control the default camera settings. Template camera values are stored in the registry, not the .CAM file. The template camera's longitude is added to the longitude of the previous camera to produce the default longitude for a new camera. Set the template camera switch longitude as you would if you were actually positioning a camera at the template camera longitude.

Just started looking at this and I have a couple of questions.

Is camera #1 the first camera after the s\f line?

I have a couple of trackfolders where the track cam editor cant seem to locate a cam file to open , any ideas where those might be found or why that is?

Otherwise it seems like a great tool I can have alot of fun with once I get the hang of it. :up:

"Is camera #1 the first camera after the s\f line?"

Not necessarily. Look at longitude setting for the first camera position of Camera 1 or 2; if this is a - number then the first camera position is before the S/F line. Longitude of 0 means it is at the S/F line. If a + number then it is located after the S/F line.

"I have a couple of track folders where the track cam editor cant seem to locate a cam file to open , any ideas where those might be found or why that is?"

It probably means the camera file is packed into the track .dat file.

Hope this helps and good luck

PS I assume you are referring to the CamEdit program?
