Discussing Driving Views

Discussion in 'ACC General Discussions' started by Diablo_rf, Apr 8, 2019.


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.
  10. Just to add my tuppence worth...
    I’ve read this thread with great interest. One thing that hasn’t been mentioned is Focus. When driving fast, under pressure in real life, your focus is completely “outside” the car, you don’t notice the dash or instruments, you don’t have time to refocus on the dash. To this end, for a single screen the position of the Bonnet (Hood) cam makes sense on a small single screen, especially with the length/seat position right back, so that you have your wings in your peripheral vision. The downside of that is the lack of raindrops, muck and so on on the screen. That could be overcome with programming.

    @Aristotelis and everyone hi, imho the advice for developers to make things working more realistic as possibile (someone wrote it pages behind), is making a sort of internal app in view settings in which you put all your distance and measures information and it gives back the optimal view for cockpit/dash/helmet cam then if someone wants to change and adapt something he can as he wants.
    Iracing has something similar that sets almost auto your fov/pov.
    Then in every menu you could be a little bit more exhaustive (it's absurd I have to pick on web info about the right brake paddles I have to use or the view if are the expressed in cm/inches/ft....)
    All should be more exhaustive, in the specific case of views for example, height, distance, lateral, what sort of unit of lenght are?
    Sorry for my english I hope is correct what I mean
    I hope developers reads it

    @dariusbull err... what has Aris to do with UI elements?o_O He is the guy for car handling/physics.In his latest Stream he explicitly pointed out, that although he like to be engaged with the community, he is not a community manager and he has his part in ACC and for every other aspect please don't bother him but use the correct channel.

    Surely he has more contact then me with the developers or I'm wrong? I only know him partecipating on forum so I tried that way;)
    Then if you show me how I could send my point of view at right interlocutor I appreciate

    Just post it in the right department on this forum without "calling" Aris by adding his nametag with @.
    Posts are read by Kunos stuff member and when relevant forwarded to the right person.
    Aris can't handle 500+ personal requests a day and it is not his job to do so. He has other stuff to do which would suffer a lot if he did.

    If you have a curved screen do you need to do something with the projection correction option?
