This places a standard camera in the 3D space. This camera can be set to a perspective or orthogonal view.


Name Description
Position This will move the object along X, Y and Z axis in the local space.
Scale Scale of the coordinate system. To scale the Object check the settings under “Display”
Rotation Rotation of the object along X, Y and Z axis.

Camera Parameter

Name Description
  • Perspective – This camera view allows for a three-dimensional view, representing depth, width and height.
  • Orthogonal – This camera view gives a two-dimensional view of the three-dimensional space.
Field of View The field of view is part of the area of the world that is visible through the camera.
Aperture The aperture of the camera can be set here.
Focus Distance This is the minimum distance where the camera is still able to focus.
Focus Length This is the maximum distance where the camera is still able to focus.

Lens Distortion

Name Description
K1 This is a lens distortion parameter.
K2 This is a lens distortion parameter.
K3 This is a lens distortion parameter.
P1 This is a lens distortion parameter.
P2 This is a lens distortion parameter.
Center X Movement of the center point along the X axis.
Center Y Movement of the center point along the Y axis.
Overscan extends the render region beyond the main image coordinates
Squeeze Factor ratio of horizontal to vertical information captured by an anamorphic lens


Name Description
Resolution The resolution of the camera can be set here.
Panel Size The panel size can be adjusted by width and height.
Aspect Ratio The aspect ratio of the output can be set here.
Lens offset The offset between the lens from the camera sensor


Name Description
Frustum Source The source to define the length of the frustum.
Frustum Length If the frustum source is set to custom length, this defines the length of the frustum
Display Type How the body of the camera is drawn on the viewport
Display Frustum When on, a frustum would be displayed for the camera
Display Targetline When on, a line would be drawn between the camera and where it is looking at
Near Clipping This is a set distance from the camera where any objects closer to the camera than this won’t be rendered.
Far Clipping This is a set distance from the camera where any objects past this distance won’t be rendered by the camera.
Focus Range What is the range of focus on the camera in meters


For v1.1.1 forward, please refer to Camera Calibration Workflow.

Reposition with Screen

This tool provides the option to calibrate the position of the camera and reposition it based on an offset that could be targeted to a parent object which allows map inputs to run in parallel while this reposition offset has been applied. Like with most reposition calibration, one of the pre-requisites is to have a calibration screen.

Name Description
opt Target If an Optional Target is selected, then the reposition calculation offset would be assigned to the target object instead of the camera object itself. This allows the option to have the reposition offset be applied on top of any map inputs that might be applied to the camera object. If the Opt Target is left blank, then the reposition offset would be applied directly to the camera object.
Image Calibration opens the widget to run the reposition calibration process.

Reposition Calibration Widget

At the top left of the Calibration widget, go into the settings tab and select an image provider. Once the image provider is selected, the preview window display the live feed.

Next, go into the Screen tab and select the calibration screens.

With an live feed configured and calibration screens associated for this calibration, the process of capturing images for observation can begin. Press to “Capture” button in the top left corner of the widget.

Once a frame has been captured, the system would analyze the frame and reports back whether it was a successful observation or not. In the bottom left corner of each observation, it would either say “#Failed” if the observation did not work; or for the error margin of the observation.

Once sufficient observations has been captured, return back to the camera object inspector, under the Tools tab, locate the Reposition tool and press the “play” icon in the header of the tool to apply the transformation to the target object.

Once the reposition has been applied, can check on the target object and see a translation in the coordinates should be applied.


Name Description
Display Object If ticked, the object will be visible in the scene. If un-ticked, the object will not be visible.
Display Label When on, there will be a label displayed next to the object.
Locked When un-ticked, it activates keyboard shortcuts – pressing ‘E’ allows you to move and ‘R’ rotate.
Object Colour Double click the colour block and this will open a colour picker. This can be used to change the object display colour.
Viewport Scale Dimensions of the object in the viewport in meters.
Frustum Length The frustum refers to the region that can be seen and rendered by a perspective camera. This parameter alters the length of the region in meters.

Node Based

The object can be controlled and used as a node. The node is created by clicking and dragging the parameter on to the board.

Name Description
  • Input – The nodes input values are determined by incoming values from an external source.
  • Output – The node is outputting data to another source.
Target Object This is the object that will either be affected by the incoming values or output information.
Position The directional XYZ values will be displayed here.
Rotation The rotational XYZ values will be displayed here.
Enabled When on, the parameter is active and enabled.
Display Colour This colour block can be changed by changing the parameter.


Name Description
Editable When on, the node is editable.
Locked When on, the node is locked into its position on the board.
