This demonstration presents CamOn, an autonomous camera control system for real-time 3D applications.
CamOn is a generalized camera control system able to produce well composed shots and smooth camera movements in dynamic environments.
This demo shows the Ogre version of the library presented at AIIDE 09 in Stanford
The system employs multiple Artificial Potential Fields to control both camera location and camera aim direction; composition requirements and scene geometry are modelled as potential fields, camera position and look-at point are modelled as particles moving along the resulting potential fields.
The video shows an hypothetical stealth-game intro sequence; the scene includes several characters in a room, some steady and some moving.
