View Full Version : Yes, use F4F L2 Camera Tool

Has anyone been frustrated with the default camera controls in Create Mode? Have you tried to get that sticker or decoration in just the right spot, and the camera moves or doesn't zoom in enough? I have... and that's why I created this neat little tool that anyone can use. This tool doesn't interfere with Popit or with the Create Mode's controls. The only downfall... Popit must be closed to manipulate it. Think of it as a secondary Popit.

To get your very own L2 Camera Tool, visit my level. There is a tutorial on how to use it there.


Controls (Popit must be closed)

To use the tool hold down L2.
With L2 held down, use the Left Stick to move the cursor and Right Stick to set the camera angle.
With L2 held down, you can also set the zoom with R1 and R2. (4 zoom presets, 100%, 200%, 400%, and 600%)
To set the Camera let go of L2, the cursor will turn green and the camera angle shouldn't move. This allows easier placement of decorations and stickers on the top, bottom, left, and right of materials.
To dis-activate the tool, tap L2 twice.
When the L2 Camera Tool is dis-activated, it will follow your sackthing as long as you are not in Hover Mode.

Let me know what you guys think. :)

I'll have to try it too. It seems helpful enough.

Awesome idea, but be careful editing in unpaused mode (obviously you can't have the game paused while you're working the camera angles on this thing). There have been reports that the 160 hour glitch is still around in lbp2 so you don't wanna' rack up a lot of unpaused time in a level.
