Camera speed switchToView


I know the speed can be changed with the function Viewer.switchToView(viewName or viewObject, maxTime) but the speed when maxTime is 1 is still too fast for me. I tried with numbers higher than 1 with no effect. Is there a way to decrease the speed? My client would like some kind of guided tour.


How fast the teleport happens can be adjusted with the WALK.TELEPORT_TO_VIEW_ACCELERATION setting. It’s in [m / s^2] and the default value is 4. If you lower the value the teleport will be slower.

maxTime sets the upper bound for the teleport time, so it doesn’t affect the speed for close views. It only affects the speed for distant views, if the acceleration given above cannot make the teleport hapen within maxTime.

Thanks for this precise answer, I love it :slight_smile:

I tried it quickly, i’m going to look more deeply into it soon but it seems that on short movements, even 0.1 as WALK.TELEPORT_TO_VIEW_ACCELERATION slows it and since it’s gonna be a guided tour, i’ll need it way more slow. How accurate is it? Can I put more decimals like 0.00001?

Thanks again !
