Dynamically change of Camera position and orientation

I have would like to simulate the view of a cm160 (UAV-Camera) in Cesium 1.30.

Using websockets I get position and orientation updates in milliseconds.

I use camera.setView and flyTo to change the position and orientation, but I get
a very low/bad performance.

Any ideas for better methods ?


Hi Rüdiger,

I would say that Camera.setView is your best bet. Is it possible for you to maybe update the view at a lower rate then you’re receiving the data updates? At the very least, you would only be able to see the results each frame.

I’m guessing you’ve probably seen it, but I’ll also link to the Camera Tutorial for a good summary of the camera methods.
