Multi Camera

Multi Camera

Places a node which combines multiple cameras views together into a single render.

Method #

The Multi Camera node enables multiple camera views to be rendered simultaneously, for example for output to a single media server canvas. Multiple cameras are passed in via the Camera Nodes input and combined into the main canvas with the views arranged horizontally. The order in which cameras are selected is decided by their position in the node graph. Connected cameras do not need to be connected to the root to be used.

Any connected cameras with post-fx applied to them will no longer have the post-fx applied when viewed through the multi camera. For this, you should look at the Render To Texture node and image 2D.

All nodes connected to this node are treated as if flowing to the parent node, and inherits any transformation changes along the chain.

Parameters

These properties control the 3D transforms of the node. Transforms will generally be inherited by child nodes, although they can be ignored through the Inherit Transform Channels attributes.

ParameterDetails
Position XMove along the local x-axis.
Position YMove along the local y-axis.
Position ZMove along the local z-axis.
Rotation HeadingRotate around the local y-axis.
Rotation PitchRotate around the local x-axis.
Rotation BankRotate around the local z-axis.
Scale XScale along the local x-axis.
Scale YScale along the local y-axis.
Scale ZScale along the local z-axis.

Toggle which transform channels should be inherited from the parent node. By default, all transforms will be inherited.

ParameterDetails
Position XToggle inheritance of the X Position from the parent.
Position YToggle inheritance of the Y Position from the parent.
Position ZToggle inheritance of the Z Position from the parent.
Rotation HeadingToggle inheritance of the Rotation Heading from the parent.
Rotation PitchToggle inheritance of the Rotation Pitch from the parent.
Rotation BankToggle inheritance of the Rotation Bank from the parent.
Scale XToggle inheritance of the X Scale from the parent.
Scale YToggle inheritance of the Y Scale from the parent.
Scale ZToggle inheritance of the Z Scale from the parent.
World Position OnlyInherit the world position from the parent only, rotation and scale will be ignored. Overrides above properties.
Inherit TimeToggle inheritance of time from the parent.

These properties control the core behaviours of the node.

ParameterDetails
Width ResolutionThe pixel resolution of each camera horizontally. When set to 0, the scene resolution is used.
Height ResolutionThe pixel resolution of each camera vertically. When set to 0, the scene resolution is used.

Camera NodesThe cameras which will be displayed in the multi camera display.Camera
Included ObjectsSelect nodes will be included in the final rendering from this camera. Once a node is connected, all unconnected nodes will be treated as excluded.3D Object
Excluded ObjectsSelect objects to be ignored by this camera. These objects will not be rendered, but will otherwise be generated and impact performance. Once a node is connected, all unconnected nodes will be treated as included.3D Object

Target NodeModifiy the rotations of the node to always direct the z axis towards the input.Null
Local Transform OverrideApply the transforms of another node to this node, relative to its parent.Null
