Confirmed to work with WotC, for more info see below...

1. Sets default rotation angle to 45 degrees.
2. Enables free camera rotation while holding down Q and E keys (in analog mode, see hotkeys).
3. Enables free camera zoom while holding down T and G keys (in analog mode, see hotkeys).
4. Enables free camera mode controlled by mouse movement (Alt + mouse).
5. Allows to pitch camera with [ and ] keys.
6. Fully ini configurable.

1. Alt + mouse - free camera mode.
2. Ctrl + F1 - reset camera to default view.
3. Ctrl + F2 - switch between free and fixed rotation/zoom.
4. Ctrl + F3 - toggle free camera.
5. [ and ] - pitch camera.

1. ini files are located under your [Path To Steam Library]\XCOM 2\XComGame\Mods\FreeCameraRotation\Config or [Path To Steam Library]\steamapps\workshop\content\268500\616359783\Config.
2. Key bindings: XComInput.ini.

I don't own the DLC myself, but here is some useful info from other players:
Can also confirm this works fine with WotC. The only minor "incompatibility" is that the mod is flagged with a warning in the mod launcher.
Try a fresh install (unsubscribe to the mod first) and open up mygames/xcom2 (and the WoTC folder too) find engine.ini and delete all instances of "modclassoverrides", locate the workshop folder in your steam installation, "\steamapps\workshop\content\268500\616359783" delete the folder (the one ending in 783) then resubscribe to this mod. It worked for me

NOTE: mods do not disable achievements in XCOM2.

DISCLAIMER: I can't guarantee any of my mods are 100% bugs free, so use them at your own risk. I do play with all of them and I will release fixes or at least workarounds if bugs/problems are discovered.

UPDATE - So I wanted to get my voice packs to work with WoTC as well, but you can't without AML, right? WRONG! Do the same trick with your voice pack mods - edit the .mod file (it's just plain text) and add the line RequiresXPACK=true to remove the yellow exclamation mark from the XCom2 launcher. I have Homer back in my squad, woohoo!!

Couldn't get it to work, tried adding the RequiresXPACK=true line to the mod as suggested in the Resolving Issues with the Mod discussion up there, and it works. It WORKS!!!!

Not sure if it's something they introduced with the latest patches - don't remember this one myself and I did the whole playthrough with the mod installed, but yes, a long time ago. Not playinmg currently, so unfortunately can't give any advice except generic one - remove all the mods, clean up all the ini files, verify integrity and then reapply the mod - and try running it with alternate launchers.

was there any fix ever declared for the white screen bug?
i run only this camera mod and frequently encounter a glitched white screen at the tactical view that briefly disappears during cinematic cam (such as during overwatch fire) but immediately returns and is only temporarily fixed by reloading the save.

dosen't make sense to me

Wasn't having such an issue, so probably a conflict with that other mod.

That being said I was using this along with the Clean Camera Angles Fix.

Any fix to stop the white screen from showing up with this mod? Some missions it was happening 3-4 times a mission which is annoying having to save/reload to clear the screen.

@Werther86 and @Lorian thank you! Your solution works for me :)

Absolutely the same situation.
