Method

This camera is designed to be controlled directly by a media server when running as a block. This is useful for use with Augmented Reality camera tracking setups, where the media server is receiving the camera tracking data.

When the Exposable Camera Values attribute is exposed, it is recognised by the media server as a controllable camera and it provides higher-level controls in the media server.

Transform

Name Description
Position X Move its position along the x-axis in local space.
Position Y Move its position along the y-axis in local space.
Position Z Move its position along the z-axis in local space.
Rotation Heading Rotate the object about the x-axis.
Rotation Pitch Rotate the object about the y-axis.
Rotation Bank Rotate the object about the z-axis.
Scale X Scale along the x-axis.
Scale Y Scale along the y-axis.
Scale Z Scale along the z-axis.

Inherit Transform Channels

Toggle which transform channels should be inherited. By default, all are on.

Attributes

Name Description
Field Of View Y The angle to modify the FOV with. Only functions with Use Field OF View Y enabled.
Aspect Ratio Defines the aspect ratio, as a decimal when locking the aspect ratio.
Near Clip The closest distance that will be rendered. NB: Reducing this value too low can reduce the accuracy of aspects of the render.
Far Clip The furthest distance that will be rendered by this camera. NB: Increasing this value too high, without increasing the Near Clip, can reduce the accuracy of aspects of the render.
Focal Plane Distance The distance from the camera that is sharp, when utilising Depth of Field. Requires a Depth of Field Post-FX to be used.
Focal Range The range around the focal plane that is sharp. Requires a Depth of Field Post-FX to be used.
Focal Bluriness How blurry the focal point is. Requires a Depth of Field Post-FX to be used.
Priority Change the priority of the camera. If two cameras have the same priority, the highest camera in the nodegraph is used.
Flip Z Axis Flip the Z axis of the values passed by the media server
Exposable Camera Values You must expose this value for the media server to be able to control the Exposable Camera

Inputs

Name Description Typical Node Input
Included Objects Select nodes to be included in the final rendering from this camera. 3D Object
Excluded Objects Select nodes to be omitted in the final rendering from this camera. 3D Object
Transform Modifier Links all transform properties to the input node. Null
Target Node Always faces the x-axis towards the inputs anchor point. Null
Local Transform Override Override the transformation values of the node, relative to its parent. Null

Outputs

Nodes Parented to this node will generally follow the standard parent-child relationship with nodes in Notch, with a couple exceptions:

- Most Post-FX nodes will only run when viewed through a camera when connected to the camera.
- The Camera Focus Target controls the focus position and attributes or the camera.
