    First attempt at a DCS Cinemaitc

    It took me a small eternity to do, because of the DCS track files breaking. so had to make half a dozen pieces of the mission and do them separately for it all to work.

    Win10 64. i9 9900k @5ghz, 64gb ram, Asus 3090 24GB, winwing F18 stick and throttle, winwing combat and takeoff panel. HP Reverb G2 v1. Nvida Driver 511.23

    Nice Video mate, and the Mossie one of my Fav in DCS, the track files in DCS have been crap for years they are meant as a debug tool rather than a track, best way I found is to Shadow play
    Target 4 'o' clock low

    Shadowplay (or OBS) is great for in cockpit views, but they don't let you go back after the flight for different camera views. That's what the tracks would ideally be for in movie editing. Breaking tracks in DCS really limits video creators ability to make good cinematics.

    Yes, it's a damned shame, given how "cinematic" DCS is. It's also one of the reasons I don't do many campaign videos. As the campaign missions are often like 1-3 hours long. So no chance of good external action shots.
    But ED has no interest in fixing it, if it's even possible, would probably be easier to make a new track recording system. 1 on 1 dogfights are usually the only thing that tracks can be used for, or very very short snippets, like I used in making of this video, the attack was only like 3 minutes long and I started the mission like 20 seconds away from the column. with the F14 you can just forget about it the track bugs out after seconds, no matter what you do with the track.
