Baldo's compass heading to .cin and .end heading conversion chart


YEARS! For years I have been wondering about what to do about .cin and .end file heading problems. Tonight, I was inspired and a solution occurred to me. I'll skip the details and explain this much:

Take a directional compass. Hold it at the 45° - 225° axis. Flip it over. That is the compass that DFBHD(TS) applies to camera heading entries in .cin and .end files.

I tried drawing this on scrap paper. I tried to work out a simple math formula. I tried to work out a complex math formula. I considered drawing a wheel with 360 compass heading points and the .cin/.end equivalents. Then I realized it doesn't have to be a circle. It can be a list!

From my notes:

There!




I've proofread the list several times, but if you find a mistake, tell me and I'll edit this post.



Edit: Alternatively, take the MEd heading you want the camera pointed to, then subtract 450. If the answer is not between 0 and -359, add 360. That'll be your .cin/.end camera heading with a minus sign in front of it.

I can't believe it took me this long and Devilsclaw's help to figure this out.
