NEW features in Camera Manager Update December 2021 :

  • NEW FEATURE ADDED  Camera Movments Record and Replay (MSFS P3D) : independently
    from the aircraft flight situation. You can record both usual aircraft flight AND the camera movements at once in the same and unique flight situation file OR you can prefer to record ONLY the camera movements, in its respective FCR file. The simple recording of the usual aircraft flight is still possible of course.
    For example, you can use this new feature to work and record an advanced camera path, impressive camera effects, in order to apply them to several and different flight situation Replays, to replicate these camera moves in multiple videos.
  • NEW FEATURE ADDED  Camera Controls Override (MSFS only) : To complete the above features, you need easy and quick controls of the camera in MSFS. That’s why the main camera controls can be set through the simple and clear interface of FlightControlReplay ! You will be able to set your shortcuts of all Camera controls directly in FCR Options Menu ! Setting your key shortcuts here, will override the MSFS controls.
    MSFS has a long list of controls, with near to endless selection windows. The goal here is to focus on the most
    used and simple camera controls, in a single window (our option menu). 12 camera controls visible at once
    are ready for key assignment ! For Prepar3D users, we still rely on the default settings controls of the sim.
    More advanced settings have been also added with fine tuning of ptich / bank / heading / eyepoint velocity with only 0.10 notch increment (instead of 10 units per notch in MSFS default settings)

 

Other Features:

  • Record a flight situation and also your voice during flight,
  • Unlimited length flight
  • Voice and Speech recognition to control FlightControlReplay, or in-game menu, or user friendly software interface
  • Various complex airliners add-ons full support (P3D FSX)
  • and many more to discover below..

Detailed features :

  • Video Rendering Mode

Using FCR FrameByFrame technology, it doesn’t matter how many frames you achieved during the flight record, because the result is interpolated to guarantee a very smooth final video. Option settings let you change the Frame Per Second of the render (15-240) and the Quality recording percentage (10-100). This feature can be very useful for video makers used in conjunction with "PlayMode Simulation Rate" feature.

  • Change Recording Camera

Select any sim camera available on the Yellow Slider timeline during Replay. The available cameras for selection include the categories ( Cockpit / External / Showcase ) and the camera detailed listing for that category (all pilots views, instruments views and external views). Only your custom cameras you may have set yourself are not currently supported, but all the default cameras of the simulators ARE.

  • Automatic Change Camera

Call and activate any custom cockpit camera, smartcam or other default MSFS / P3D camera by choosing a keyboard shortcut ! Setup the keyboard shortcut, that you configured in “MSFS Controls section”, inside the CameraChange Dialog and this will be be triggered at the chosen frame. When Replay reaches this frame, FCR triggers the keyboard shortcut and automatically activates the Camera Change that you set.

  • Re-Live InstantReplay

Rewind and play again ! While flying, using FlightControlReplay in InstantReplay mode allows to go backward over the last 2 minutes of the User flight. Move the Yellow Slider backward, to the left, and you will display your last seconds of flight. Whenever you want, from any Yellow Slider point, you can resume your flight by simply pushing the Stop Button. In case of Crash to Desktop when this mode is activated,  your airplane is restored in its last known position.

  • PlayAsAI support up to 5 AI aircraft in each FCR instance, Unlimited Traffic with more instances

Simulate formation flight during your flight replay. Your recorded flight path is replayed as AI Traffic. Add as many aircraft as you want : You can manage up to 5 AI aircraft to replay your flight path as AI Traffic with each FCR instance. And reach unlimited traffic with AI Aircraft by using more than one instance of FCR addon at the same time.  You can choose and play your preferred Recorded Flight as AI Traffic. You have all the options available as in standard playing mode, to change the simulation rate on the fly or via the yellow slider of the User interface to choose exactly where your AI Traffic can start his flight. Switch View and Aircraft Control are new options made possible in PlayAsAI mode so can watch one selected AI aircraft, and you can decide to take control of this AI aircraft too, at anytime during Replay.

  • Load Replay without loading initial Flight Situation

With just an option box to tick, save your time. When it’s active, this option allows FlightControlReplay to load your Replay flight and it directly restores your complete flight situation settings including its weather and location at the same time. You don’t need to load in a first step your recorded flight, and as second step, separately in the simulator itself, load also your FLT file. At once, FCR software will bring all the necessary data along your Replay.

  • VR support

FlightControlReplay can be used also in all VR Environments via key mapping AND for Windows Mixed Reality Headset. You can also run FlightControlReplay directly into the cockpit and you can see FCR User Interface for full use!

  • Realtime FlightRecorded modification

Load a recorded flight and move the slider or at the initial point of slider and click Edit Button. You have now the opportunity to add Altitude Offset, where you can select an offset altitude by typing for example -300 or +300

  • Aircraft Gear status : During a Replay, you can force the gear status Up,Down, or let it automatic. Select any point of the timeslider, click Edit and select the gear status of your choice. Effective live !
  • Leanve / Take Aircraft Control Toggle

Switch view and take control of one selected AI plane (PlayAsAI mode), or take control of your own aircraft during a Replay. You can toggle it off in order to give back controls to FlightControlReplay that returns in line with the values of the recorded flight.

  • InGame Menu for P3D and FSX (not supported in MSFS)

You can also use FlightControlReplay main features from a very handy InGame Menu directly displayed inside the Simulators. For example, the User can Load a Flight Recorded, Start Stop and Pause Replay, Start and Stop video rendering, or Resume his previous flight without leaving the simulator window.

  • Microsoft "Surface Dial Integration"

Use Surface Dial to navigate your Timeline and Start / Stop / Play / Record available in P3DX Enhanced and MSFS versions (not with FSX)

Bin begeistert. Im Prepar3d hat das Programm bei mir immer ewig nicht funktioniert, weil mein Prepar3d hat einfach langsam war.. eventuell falsch konfiguriert.

MSFS: TOP! BOMBE! Passt einfach alles !!!

Set up was easy - HOWEVER - software will installed 3 versions (for all the simulators), not just the one you are running. Its up to you to run the correct .exe for your sim. For example, it can and will run the FSX version on MSFS2020, and you will be none the wiser. SO be sure to click the correct one as different option menus are assigned to different sims. It took me a while to realise, that I was in the 'generic' version of this app instead of the MSFS one and for this reason I could not simply leave flight to continue live flying (as this is exclusive to MSFS2020 and the corresponding .exe which goes with it.)

The interface is nice enough - but takes up far too much screen space making it look clunky and amateurish. Would be great if the software could loaded automatically on sim startup.

Apart from these smallish gripes, the software runs beautifully smooth, and it is perfect for practicing the same scenario with the correct switches and settings to resume flying wherever you choose on a saved track. It does this almost instantly and I am extremely happy with how efficient this works for practicing situations that can be tweaked on the fly. It really makes learning the complexities of aircraft (like the 737PMDG / Fenix A320) a breeze to practice and master and to me it's a fantastic buy for this alone.

This app is very powerful. Initially it was a bit difficult to use. It gets easier after watching the youtube video tutorial and practice. In order to get the best angle, u need to familiarize yourself with the drone camera, no shortcut on these.

Hello
I bought this product for same days. I have little little movements in the moment, when I fly as second airplane side a side. (jerk?) I have try to tuning via the FPS, not sucessful really.

Ich habe das Produkt vor einigen Tagen gekauft. Beim Begleitflug, Seite an Seite, wenn ich ganz nahe am ersten Flugzeug mitfliege, entstehen unangenehme kleine und grössere Ruckler. Ist das mit der Bildwiederholrate in den Griff zu bekommen?

not at all the product i expected. Quality of replay is medium to poor, and you can't analyze your flight (take off/landing) as it replays ( as the name suggest it )but doesn't record what you did. Only landing gear gets down or retracted like during the "recording", but all the rest has to be re-done manually.
It should be renamed to "re-play", iso "replay"

Does not really work in an acceptable manner in MSFS. Weird movements and actions of the airplane, minutes of waiting before playback and poorly integrated. Acceptable if it was freeware. Last update months ago although there is so much to improve.

Samuel
In my opinion, the add-on did not deserve 5 stars. It's basically a good idea, but unfortunately it's pretty buggy. Switches that are operated in an airplane during recording are by no means reproduced in every airplane when playing back. (a.e MilViz Corsair) Often you can't hear the engine noises, and CTD's are not uncommon. Key assignments don't work for me. Whether keyboard, gamepad or joystick. That makes it even more cumbersome because I have to open the program window every time I pause. If you are lucky, 10 attempts may succeed in 3, as you really did. There is still a lot of work to be done. And I hope the developer stays tuned ...

Linking the Flight control to MSFS 2020 was difficult , using while flying is not yet resolved. I hope the updated one had a solution to this problem.

I have been intensively working with the program since the day I bought it about a week ago. It is absolutely wonderful, reliable and stable. It does what it says ( it does a lot!!!) without affecting the pc resources, especially with such a "hungry" and demanding program, like msfs 2020 where every frame rate counts. I can't wait for the next update which will do even more. The service is also professional. I had a question for Fabio, the author of the program and received a reply in a few hours!!! I absolutely love FlightControlRe-
play. Highly recommended. An important note: DO NOT FORGET TO RUN THE PROGRAM AS ADMINISTRATOR
