Hey,

using CameraZoomIn() and CameraZoomOut() has no effect on the Camera in the Sim. The Zoom Level remains 1, when using the camera manager within the Sim i was able to Zoom in and out.

The camera i tried to Zoom in/out was a self created oberser using SimConnect.

Hi,

to my best knowledge, an Observer is not a camera, the camera specific controls don't work with them. You can only use the "Observer View Specific" SimConnect methods. I am using SetObserverFieldOfView for zooming an Observer view.

thanks that solved it :) It is kind of irritating to have the option in the UI to zoom an observer but it is unable to use the SimConnect method for it
