camera window
2 Attachment(s)
This could be quite useful for multiplayer games that use the keyboard, so there could be a splitscreen, worlds that would be useful with several views at once, selecting scenes to go to, flat moving pictures etc.

basically this could happen:

- set up a special camera tripod related item.
- make a billboard elsewhere that is linked to that tripod..
- view the live virtual camera view from that tripod on the billboard, even when the actual camera is elsewhere.
- repeat the proccess for more views on one screen.

Note that the billboard pictures move as the items on view from the special camera tripods move.
I have made something like it.

Unfortunately that's just a suggestion, shaydon. It doesn't exist, he's asking for it to be implemented.

Yes I have asked for this exact thing in my "Multiple Cameras" post in the suggestion box. It would be very useful to have a billboard that can have a live feed from another camera in the program.

Actually, I'm working on this right now. One alice application would be the main camera, and a second alice application can be opened for other views.

Jed, you really need to make a habit of carefully reading previous posts before posting questions like this.

Seriously, it's all explained in the previous posts. Just read them and you'll get your answer.
