I have been playing with GEpro's paths, polygons, etc., I'll talk limitations on those tools in another thread. First, I need help matching my GEpro view to various aerial photos. My current fun project is Boca Chica, TX. The satellite imagery there is woefully dated, 12/9/17. Here's a recent flyover video. I'll pause the video and then attempt to match it in GEpro.
It's difficult to find the correct 3D coordinates of the airplane where the image was photographed. Once I have the rough location, I choose an object in GEpro and drag it, while switching to the window with the photo, until the object doesn't move when I switch between the GEpro window and the YouTube window. Then I rotate the world around the location of the object; approach/retreat to/from the object until other objects fall into place. Next would be to zoom in/out.
Where's the "zoom" tool. What people often call "zoom" is in fact "approach/retreat" to or from the selected geographic point (the cursor' 3D location in the world). I want to adjust the effective focal length of my "eye" without moving it. This would be helpful when attempting to match the view from another source. eg. I can locate my GEpro "eye" approximately at the location of Nerdlecam [25° 59.741'N 97° 10.004'W] or Sentinelcam [25° 59.551'N 97° 10.597'W], along the road from Highbay to Launchpad. But those cameras are often zoomed in tight, filling only a small rectangle of the GEpro view.
Is there a way to adjust "eye altitude" vertically while not looking vertically, without switching in and out of look-down ?
