Introduction

In this article, you can read about the Virtual Camera compounds which come with Aximmetry. They are necessary for SE and DE workflows with non-tracked (virtual cameras). We will describe how to import and connect them to other items in the Flow editor, and the Control Boards they include.

Virtual Camera

The term Virtual Camera in Aximmetry refers to a workflow that uses stationary studio cameras. It also refers to the virtual counterpart of the real-world studio camera; this virtual camera allows us to see the virtual graphics of the virtual production that the real-world studio camera cannot see.

For studio cameras with camera tracking systems, please find more info on them in the Tracked Camera Compounds article.

Compound Locations
