F1 2019 FOV values

Recommended Posts

Hello, I’ve searched around to see if this has already been answered, but I can’t find any reliable answers so hopefully y’all can help.

When adjusting camera settings in F1 2019 (PS4), what is the relationship between the FOV slider and actual FOV in degrees. I have my comfort zone setup in PCARS2 and would like to establish continuity, but I’m struggling to understand whether 1.00 means 100deg or what. 
 

Thanks for any help

In which camera mode are you running? And can Codemasters explain if it differs between views or why the value isn't in degrees? Great question.

I’m running cockpit personally. Thanks

I use this calculator, hope it can help you

I’ve found this as well, though I haven’t even found any follow-up information from Codemasters that verifies it. My understanding is that the creator of that particular calculator did his/her best to approximate what he believed the numbers should be.  Thanks for the response regardless

Hi mate.. 

I had my settings customised by myself and i feel a big improvement in my lap times and overall performance.. 

I had the fov / field of view values in - 0.50 and had adjust the vertical height to 0.20 and the horizontal to 0.60 

Clip pane in 1.00 and shake câmera on 50.. 

Angle on 0 (default) 

I am pretty happy with these settings. 

I am running on Xbox One in a single screen of 32" and 155 cm away from the screen. 

Hope helped you

I've been looking at FoV as well.  It occurs to me that the starting point should be when the horizontal FoV matches the human eye cone central vision where the best 3D from binocular vision occurs.  This is between 50-60 degrees horizontally, to include the near peripheral vision.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peripheral_vision

So at https://andyf.me/fovcalc.html, I've moved my monitor, 27.5", until the horizontal angle is 55 degrees.  This equates to a monitor distance of 58.5cm.  I can't quite get that close due to current set up, but it is not too bad.

Having tried near 58.5cm, it is just too "busy"  So now at 70cm eye to screen, wheel rim to screen 25cm.  So although the central vision cone is 55 degrees, I reckon the actual cone that that you look at without eye movement/refocusing is quite a bit less.  Perhaps with age the central cone becomes narrower??

With cockpit view, I've moved horizontal so that the outside edges of the wing mirrors are on the edge of the screen and added a little vertical height as I think 0 is too low in cockpit in relation to halo rim.

Near Clip pane doesn't seem to do anything!!

So, been looking at this more. For my screen, 16:9, 27.5" and at 70cm from eye:

https://dinex86.github.io/FOV-Calculator/ has for F1 2016/2017/+: -0.75. Is F1 2019 the same? 

If I use that I seem to be unnaturally well forward in the cockpit and only see the inside edges of the mirrors and tyre tops. 

And

https://andyf.me/fovcalc.html has for F1 2019: F1 (2019+) - 2.2. Which is impossible in the game settings!!

Well confused??

For me the Best i found was - 0.50 of FOV.. After i setted the horizontal.. For me the 0.60 matches perfectly.. After increased a little the vertical to 0.20 and this week i put a - 0.20 angle.. I had drive a FRenault Car and the immersion its very similar with the settings i am using
