Ezdok Camera Addon (EZCA) greatly enhances view control in Flight Simulator X. It allows the user to travel within the virtual cockpit of the aircraft, around theaircraft, and around the Flight Simulator X world. The addon also simulates the visual effects of the pilot’s head movements caused by vibration, turbulence, aircraft accelerations, and surface roughness when on the ground. With EZCA you can place internal or external cameras “on-the-fly”, adjust its position, and turn on or off the appropriate camera shake effects. You can travel around thevirtual cockpit and outside the aircraft using the mouse and keyboard like you do in 3D shooters. With the benefits of “Point-to-point” and “3D-panoraming” technologies you can make view control in FSX as nearly as convenient as with advanced hardware view control systems like Track-IR. We hope developers of scenery addons for FSX will also find EZCA as a valuable tool. EZCA’s ability of walking aroundthe Flight Simulator world will help them to observe their objects from any point of view within Flight Simulator, helping them to avoid flaws and mistakes. EZCA expands the possibilities of Flight Simulator X movie making and will be useful for addon developers as a tool that can improve the quality of promo videos of their products, as well as for movie making enthusiasts to get the mostrealistic effects and viewpoints.

Support is provided by Ezdok Software and Flight One Software staff via a customer support forum. We highly recommend you visit the forum and participate in discussions regarding EZCA to learn about features, to helpoffer suggestions, and to help make EZCA even more ground breaking.
