Ever wanted to create your own Minecraft video but found the minecraft camera to be shaky? Tried panning the smooth but still unsatisfied with the result? PixelCam might just be the mod you need!
Created by a talented user under the name CrushedPixel, PixelCam is a mod that allows players to control the camera and make it move from one place to another with constant smooth speed for better video recording.
This mod makes in-game video capturing easier by featuring in-depth control over the camera and camera displacement.
In its core, this mod transfers all the basic functionality of the mod Camera Studio for Minecraft 1.8.
PixelCam is best used in recording timelapses, cinematic movies, smooth camera paths, in-game quality video recording, and many more.
Since the mod PixelCam is a client-based mod and does not alter any gameplay mechanics, it can be used on a server without the need of altering any server files. However, keep in mind that this mod is made for OPs and server admins and does not allow any player to cheat in any way.
For server use, you must first pass few requirements, otherwise you will be kicked by the server:
- Player needs to be in creative mode while using the mod features
- Player needs to have access to the /tp command
To use the PixelCam Mod properly, the mod added few commands to use:
/cam p – adds a waypoint at the current position and head rotation. (Shortcut: ‘p’)
/cam start – travels the path in the given time. Example: /cam start 1m20s
/cam stop – interrupts travelling.
/cam goto – teleports to the specified waypoint.
/cam clear – removes all waypoints.
Since the mod features camera control, screenshots won’t do any good. To see the mod in action, you might want to check this instructional video.
