Camera Shake Setting

I wonder if this is a feature that is only enabled on the Tacx trainers that can provide road feel. Even with the road feel setting turned off the visual camera shake is still visible. I agree, I ride in front of a 65" 4K TV and the shake can be quite distracting at times.

Hi, yes please add the option to turn the camera shake off. It is really making me feel dizzy and kind of triggers motion sickness. I really hate it.

I think it is especially bad right now with the camera angle issues too. Camera 2 is really bad.

I have the same issue with the Zwift Hub. I’m in front of a 82" TV and especially in the corners the buildings and trees are shaking quite strong which gives me nausea.

Camera smoothing is the keyword for the developer. This feature should have an option with a slider to adjust how much smoothing you want. Such thing can be implemented in a few minutes in most 3d engines.

I also wish there was an option to disable “camera shake”.

It’s not much of a problem on smaller screens, but if you’re using a 40+ inch TV as a display, the constant shaking on certain road surfaces starts to enter “barf-o-rama” (motion sickness) territory when looking at the TV. So much so, that you’ll need to look away unless you want to see breakfast in reverse.

Especially now with the new Watopia extension, there’s a quite lengthy stone road surface where this quickly becomes uncomfortable to look at.

100%. I prefer the 3rd person short (think that’s what its called) and it’s downright horrible on the new stone road in Watopia.

Agree completely, I hate it and wish I could turn it off

Yep turn this camera shake off. i happend to be in camera 2or3 on an event the other week and thought something was seriouly broken with the game or my PC i was about to raise a ticket then found my usual camera 1 was ok.

the shake would make most people sick if they used that

IIRC it doesn’t matter which forward facing camera you use, it’s a very annoying issue.

Totally agree.


Another vote from me. It is so irritating and makes me dizzy. Replace the „workout pain effect“ button and use it for this setting.

Patch to disable camera shake (Windows ZwiftApp.exe)


Patcher script (requires Python)


thanks not sure why zwift aren’t doing this. surely nobody actually rides with that camera shake might as well get the bucket ready to throw up.
