[Question] How to add a custom camera to a replay

Post by chaos2 » 06 Sep 2017, 11:14

I feel really dumb for having to ask this, but i simply couldn't figure it out:
Which of these buttons adds a customizable camera to the replay?

I recently tried to edit some replays and i feel like i'm missing the very basics of it.
Every tutorial i could find already had the basic setup and was on camera setups and realistic effects.

Isn't there any documentation like the handbooks of the old days where i could find what exactly the "Time" and "Camera" Block are even doing. I feel like i would waste everybodies time asking such basic questions in this forum :?

Thanks Alinoa,
this documentation is usually helpfull. Unfortunately not in this case. :(
I guess my question is "How can i add a 'custom camera' track or any camera track in the replay editor?".

Although a little bit off-topic: Is there a page like https://doc.maniaplanet.com/mediatracke ... ers-tracks but with all available tracks and an explanation for the settings of each track?

In your screenshot there already is a camera track. To add a new camera block you have to remove the previous one or add a new block before or after the existing one on the same track.

But it's not a camera track where i can change the view, anchor point, zoom, camera path or anything.
For this i need a "red track", don't i?

i added an "after game" sequence in the map and got this:

That's currently my only way of getting customizable cameras in the replay editor: having them already in the replay from the "after game" sequence. What does this white camera track even do if it gets overwritten by the other tracks?
