Lightbulb camera window - 02-05-2010, 04:57 PM

This could be quite useful for multiplayer games that use the keyboard, so there could be a splitscreen, worlds that would be useful with several views at once, selecting scenes to go to, flat moving pictures etc.

basically this could happen:

- set up a special camera tripod related item.
- make a billboard elsewhere that is linked to that tripod..
- view the live virtual camera view from that tripod on the billboard, even when the actual camera is elsewhere.
- repeat the proccess for more views on one screen.

Note that the billboard pictures move as the items on view from the special camera tripods move.

I have made something like it.
