Discussing Driving Views

What type of camera view are you using?

  1. Interior

  2. Exterior

  3. I use both, depending of the situation

    Hey, in iracing i run 85 deg, i drive only formula car, i don't know if the different cockpit could be a thing.
    In acc i must run 40-42 deg to be consistent.

    Referring to https://andyf.me/fovcalc.html your hFov in iracing is correct at 85° and your according vFov in ACC should be around 29° deg.
    Are you able to take the same car and track in iRacing as in ACC?
    Would be interesting to hear your impressions comparing these two games with the same car/track combo and according settings, maybe even better adding screenshots of both in the same place.

    Thanks, that should help.

    As @AndyK70 allready mentioned, if you want to be running the correct FOV, then it should be around 29° for ACC. Not sure if it goes that low though. But if it does, I would like to know of that works for you.

    I’ve got a question around this topic I run at 45 degrees at the mo. But on the calculator it’s asking for around 30.

    If I run at around 30 I get a weird letterbox pendulum effect that almost makes me a little notion sick. Feel a little detached.

    So the question is. If I run at 30, can I move the camera forwards, backwards etc. Or does that negate the correct fov?

    You can move it forwards/backwards as much as you like. The field of view stays the same, it's just the camera position that changes.

    So aim for the lowest to correct ratio as possible but move the camera. Ok that makes sense.

    Im up around fifty for the backwards movement. Are even big numbers like that ok to work with?

    Funny enough that’s also my distance to screen in inches. Not sure if they relate but just funny they are the same.

    Ha perfect. There’s a little section that just makes me look a right fool.

    Makes complete sense. It’s just the camera depth. Suppose it just felt like I was undoing it by moving the camera.

    Thanks for the help. Will go a relearn my eyes!

    Definitely not a fool, completely understandable to think that changing camera position also changes FoV.
