Cinematic Camera Extended

Compatible with Cities Skylines 1.10.0-f3 (Park Life)

Capture different camera positions and play a cinematic transition between them.

Extended version of Cinematic Camera by Icob.

Click on the clapboard icon (can be moved with right mouse button) at the bottom right of the screen or press C to display the user interface.

Click the + button or the + key on the keypad to capture the current position of the camera and add it to the path.
You need at least 2 captured points to be able to play a cinematic.

You can edit the easing (auto recommended), duration, delay and fov of each point to fit your needs.

The fps option
When enabled, the fps option will allow you to set a specific frame rate. It is important to note that the simulation will be in sync with the frame rate. One frame = one simulation step.

This is especially useful if you get stuttering because you can record at a lower, more stable frame rate with the simulation in sync and speed up your recording in post production for a smooth video.

Other options
- Playback speed: Speed up or slow down the speed of the playback.
- Hide UI during playback: Uncheck this to keep UI during playback. You can play the game normally during that time except for camera control.
- Unpause simulation: If checked the simulation will be unpaused when starting the playback.

Hit the Save/Load button to manage your saved paths.
Enter a name and click Save to save the current path.

The saved files can be found in the following folder %localappdata%\Colossal Order\Cities_Skylines\CinematicCameraExtended

C = toggle UI
C = stop playing
+ (keypad) = add point
- (keypad) = remove last point
Enter (keypad) = play

@xmicha3l please use ACME.

How do you prevent the jerky playbacks? I notice in some sectors, the playback is quite smooth and in other areas staccato. I know these are all framerate issues but am wondering what is recommended in order to make a smooth video.

@JulienB you can actually find the saved camera paths in the Cities Skylines game folder and you can open the XML files to see the settings and edit them. Change the setting related to height and save the file, then load it in the cinematic camera mod and it'll use the position you set in the XML file. Little workaround, but it works.

@JulienB You can get the Camera Positions Utility or the more recently created and release ACME 0.3 mod

Does anyone know if there is a way to get lower to the ground? Whenever I get ground level it readjusts slightly higher. I am using enhanced zoom mod.

I've had an on-again, off-again issue where some vehicles are stuck in the same position, just reversing and winding back up - I suspect it might have something to do with TM:PE but wondering if anyone has a fix. It's a shame this mod is as buggy as it is without any great alternative.

My game freezes every time I use this mod to make a cinematic! I think it's this mod because I've tried disabling a lot of mods, and when I used the original Cinematic Camera mod instead, no problem! also used the auto cinematic camera in the vanilla game, no problem too! help anyone this is the only proper cinematic mod in the workshop...

Can confirm, I'm having the same issues with @Pete. It started occuring for me after the Airports DLC release, last November 2021 the mod still works fine for me.
