camera rig. with offset control

hi,  I am using blender version 2.82 and the file with the camera rig.  I don't see the camera offset control.   Do I have to use version 2.9 with. that file to access that control?   Could just. be the morning coffee didn't kick in yet.   Thanks - T

    Yes, as I mention in the video, the add-on is updated in the 2.9 release which has that extra control. 

    (2.9 is being released this week I think)

    Check the downloadable files as I have included a file that already has the camera rig built in it.

    (It's just that the UI script won't function exactly the same in the older version - I don't think it will break anything though)


    So you can wait a couple days, or start with the downloaded file ;)

    • I don't think the updated file actually has the updated dolly rig with the camera offset bone control on it. I'm using 2.90.1 and I downloaded the updated file that has the annotations about it being the new rig but I don't see the camera offset bone in there. I deleted the rig object and added a new one and it had the offset bone so I think the project file might still be using the old dolly rig.

      Maybe I'm missing it, idk I've got quarantine brain right now so ignore me if I'm crazy here.

      Your Quarantine Brain is spot on.
      Fixed.
