Multi monitor and camera position API

20 Dec 2016 07:16

I am a software engineer working on a space simulator side project.  Is it possible to use SpaceEngine as a rendering engine for multiple cameras (and multiple monitors) with an API to set pose from an external source?  I have a rendering engine now, but Space Engine has some a lot of interesting features the other engine I'm using does not have.  I also have a high fidelity dynamics simulation that I want to continue using, as well as some unique user input devices.  The rendering engine I have now lets me set each camera relative to a single node, and lets me drive the pose of that node externally from my dynamics simulation.

No, this is not possible at present, and will not be possible for a long time.

I'm looking for the same feature. I want to create a room simulation where i have a main view screen and a couple side windows.

I want to create a relaxation experience where I can set the destination and speed and just relax and occasionally look up to see where I am.

I would even be ok with the space engine running on multiple devices which are simply in sync on location but I've selected a different view position for each one. This could simulate the experience.

Thoughts?
