Cool: NewView has released Version 29. It supports Cam2Pan and thus allows panning by head motion in both ‚"mouse‚"Ě and ‚"absolute‚"Ě modes. Here is how:

1. Install and connect a webcam.
2. Download NewView Version 29 or higher from http://www.sh.zp.ua/il2/il2_newview.zip
3. Unzip it to any folder.
4. Download Cam2Pan Version 2.07 or higher from
http://www.mousevision.com/download.htm
and install it.
5. Within NewView: Start configurator. Select English language, and register the DLL by pushing the ‚"Add DLL to registry‚"Ě button.
6. In the ‚"Buttons‚"Ě tab, select ‚"Helmet Mode‚"Ě.
7. In the ‚"Helmet‚"Ě tab, in the ‚"GetDataFrom‚"Ě area, select ‚"External Interface (Cam2Pan, etc.)‚"Ě.
8. Save all your NewView settings.
9. Start Cam2Pan, and you are ready to go.

Interesting. As soon as I figure out NewView(which could be a while as I get confused easily http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif ) I will give MouseVision a try.


Ah...poopy! You gotta buy it. The free version shuts off after 5 min. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Question: since cam2pan already emulates trackir absolute mode & also has a mouse-move mode, what is the benefit of using it with newview?

I ask this as a cam2pan user, curious to know if I should try newview.

Absolutely,
NewView brings to C2P a bunch of very nice features including a variable response curve and a nice reduction of jittering.
