Default Guncam idea for COD

Was just watching some guncam footage and got thinking wouldnt it be a great idea to have a proper guncam tapes to view and share?
It could be a key press or linked to the trigger and the recording would be from where ever the cam would be located on the aircraft.

Then the playback could be in black and white and have after affects added, a bit of shake and noise on the view and wiggly tracers.
then the tracks could be saved just like the normal tracks we record, shared and viewed.

It could also be linked to a mission debriefing screen , and viewed just like the real pilots would.

Good idea?

I would be surprised if that wasn't already included. Oleg mentioned that he has a whole lot more options when it came to camera settings and options. He also wants this to be the new "go-to" program for documentaries about aircraft, so having that option would be a must.

that sounds awsome
i've always just turned off the cockpit when viewing tracks to get the same kind of thing, but it doesn't really work that well.

having an official and easy-to-use guncam function would be a really fun addition to the experience, and if b&w and other effects would be possibl at the flick of a switch, it could even be part of a debriefing in campaigns

anyone who might know more about this than me:
do you think it'd be hard to make an option for an offcenter pov in a recorded track to make this possible, in an engine that supports 6DOF?

does indeed sound as if they might have done some work on it at least, but Oleg wrote that in October of '09, and I can't remember seeing anything about it lately..

perhaps we should ask him or Luthier in the next update-thread?

Would be nice.

Maybe even some export to tacview would add more data for analysis after a match. This way no one could complain about "miracles"... ofcourse if that data could be made available by the server only after players exits the mission. say... if server encrypts that file and only after the mission while disconnecting it gives to the player a pass key.

Il post about it in the next update thread...of course far to late for release but maybe they will give it some thought, something for a latter patch with luck.

What about Luftwaffe missions to make propaganda? In the early stage of the BoB bombers took sometimes photographers to make pictures for propaganda. Should be quite fun for CoD.
