Free tracking camera

This Addon adds a camera function that can be freely moved in Armed Assault.
The operation is like with the default camera.sqs.

Extract to your ArmA\Addons folder or just use a modfolder method.
Check our FAQ for a detailed explanation how to use modfolders.

Included .pbo files:

[2500,3000,1.7] exec "\gig_camera\freecamera.sqs"
Argument is initial position of camera. [X-Pos, Y-Pos, Z-Pos]
[ X-Pos, Y-Pos, Z-Pos, Direction, TiltAngle, Zoom, MovingSpeed, TrackingSpeed, TrackingMode, ReferringAboveLevel, ShowNotificationText, ShowDetectingBall ]

X-Pos : Initial camera X Coordinate.
Y-Pos : Initial camera Y Coordinate.
Z-Pos : Initial camera Z Coordinate.
Direction : Initial camera direction. 0 to 360. 0 is north. default is 90.
TiltAngle : Initial camera tilt angle. -90 to 90 (min tilt angle to max tilt angle). default is 0.
Zoom : Initial camera zoom. 0.01 to 2.0 (max zoom to min zoom). default is 0.7.

At least, it is necessary to specify three arguments of X-Pos, Y-Pos, Z-Pos.
[ 2500, 3000, 1.7 ]

It is possible to specify it one by one after that. To the following,
