1st person view (camera 3)

(Brett Martin) #1

This has been asked a few times but I dont recall seeing an official response from Zwift.


Can we have handlebars in the foreground in the 1st person view, this would be my favorite camera view if it were.

Hi Brett, 

Thank you very much for your input. We’ll put it on the request list for you. More requests we get, bigger chance you’ll see it in Zwift.

Its been mentioned before, including some form of out in front computer readout.

Ability to stare at Stem and top tube etc etc. :wink:

I have been wanting the same thing since using zwift. It would make it feel so much more life like in all honesty,

Hi Jason, 

Have you officially suggested this feature? (Submitting a ticket or here on our forum) 

If not, I’ll add you on the list :) 

(Jason Conley_MonsterMediaRacing) #6

I haven’t. Go ahead and add me if you would like.

Ok Jason, all done! Ride On!

I would love to see the real world first person view too. Maybe a small slice of the front tire, handlebars, maybe part of the computer showing watts or speed. Something to make it feel real and also give some perspective to how close you are to a rider in front of you. Would probably help a lot of riders with drafting distance. Go Zwift!

Ok guys, few more votes for 1st person view! 

Ride On!

I agree on seeing part of the front tire from 1st person view.  It would make a little easier in judging distance/drafting the rider in front.

I’d love to see this view as an option.

Copy that Zwifters! Thank you!

Adding my vote for this. I’d also like to add the ability to look left or right incrementally by using arrow keys. Maybe even up and down too and have a key to return to center. I think it would be awesome to be able to look around in first person view.

My vote for this view and also to add an option to choose your default camera view, e.g. 1, 2 or 3. My personal favouite is Camera 2 (just that bit closer in than camera 1) but it always defaults back again.

I love the 1st person view, but sometimes miss the ability to see my rider position to judge speed and aero advantages.

One additional thing that would be nice if we see the bars, we could also see the riders hands.  With that, we could see when the rider is up on the tops, riding the hoods or in the drops.

This could be useful to confirm that you are in the draft when you see the hands move from the drops to the hoods.

i’d love to see what is on that screen in workout mode. I can see it shows power when riders pass you

(Mick Neal INTENT - (C)) #18

The VR version has it :wink:
