Hello people, hello EVE!

I'm a machinima artist and I already have created many videos, movies and machinima in other 3D MMORPGs like Second Life using the 3D connexion Space Navigator for free and smooth camera movement.

I already have tried to create some really cool videos in the past for our EVE corporation and alliance and I've tried it again in the last weeks.

I really wonder, how the CCP people are doing these great videos like the trailer for EVE Incarna here:
They must have a possibility for free and smooth camera movement. Maybe they are somehow using the Space Navigator or other tools? I'm quiet sure, that they have some God-like tools to do this.

But I also wonder, why there is no such support for free and smooth camera movement for the "normal" EVE users?? Is this some kind of security risk? Would it provide some unfair advantages in PvP or PvE? Whyever, I really wish to be able to make my own cool EVE video with really cool camera movements and such.

So please, EVE developers and CCP team, please implement the support for the 3D connexion Space Navigator!
(Or any other tool that gives me the ability to do really free, smooth camera movements in the 3D space!)

Thanks in advance.

Sincerely yours

Admiral Guck.

The trailers are done with an inhouse tool named "Jessica" as far as I know, it's unlikely to ever be available for player use unfortunatly.

I think it would be neat. You should maybe petition your thread and ask to be shown to a dev to see if you can get a blue bar on it.

Additionally, the feature you suggest may be neat for the Assembly hall.

I for one would love to see some more machinima tools available in eve. I'd like to be able to record a battle then play it back from any angle, recording as I go. Adding features to do this live would make for more exciting visualise for the alliance tournaments as well.
