Easy Assist 2 - Unimagined possibilities, still just as easy to operate


In collaboration with our Vasco da Gama customers, we have been able to develop and improve the popular Easy Assist mode. A special highlight of this collaboration is our new Easy flight mode. With just one click, the Easy Flight mode takes over the work for you and generates the take-off and landing of aircraft for you without needing any further settings. But not only that, all other flight movements are automatically calculated and displayed. Many other new features provide you more varied design possibilities, such as display of a compass, a navigation globe with position arrow, hiding and showing of text, setting of stopover times, and other new features.

Sun animation: even more dynamic travel animations with spectacular light and shadow interactions


Many trips last for hours or even days, and pass through different time zones. In order to make a route animation even more realistic, it makes sense to be able to specify different times of day for the different stopping points on the route. For example, you can start your trip at sunrise and travel into the evening. During the day the lights and shadows change. And that at a fast pace! A really great effect.

Visual Highlights ? from Aesthetic to Spectacular


Use Vasco da Gama 11 to create impressive animation effects. Use the depth-of-field effect to stylishly and subtly emphasize the main theme. Or combine the effect with lens flares and scattering of the sun's rays in the Earth's atmosphere to create stunning and emotional scenes that will get a "wow" from every viewer.

Camera running - you're the director


Benefit from the professional camera work with which you can direct your travel videos ? down to the last detail. In Camera mode, you set the angle, zoom, and more for each of your travel projects. So you can easily view several route animations simultaneously and harmonize perfectly. Switch to a bird's eye view as you fly across the Atlantic. Zoom in close to admire the sights in the big cities. The clever timeline allows you to create clear snapshots of the camera movement ? for an excellent overview.
