Drill Camera Controls Series 2

Welcome back to the 4-part series on MOTI Mobile Camera Controls for Drills.  In this article the Pivot-In-Place and Rotate-Around-Location camera modes will be reviewed and explained. Utilizing these modes, a complete view of the field and play is possible.

To recap, the review of the camera modes is divided into 4 different parts.  Topics for the 4 parts are:

  • Overview – Part 1 introduced basic motion options (finger-gestures and on-screen joysticks) and provide a high-level overview of each of the camera modes.
  • Pivot-In-Place and Rotate-Around-Location (this article)– Part 2 is a detailed overview of two modes that provide a very flexible overview of the drill. As a note, Pivot-In-Place is the default mode when a drill starts.
  • Follow-Player, Follow-Ball, Track-Player and Track-Ball – Part 3 will explore the ‘follow’ and ‘tracking’ options. These modes facilitate focusing on specific player/ball in a complex drill.
  • Top-Down Perspective – Part 4 covers a viewing of the field that will be very familiar with players of some of the most popular real-time strategy games.

Teachers Prepare: to teaching Soccer in three scenarios?
