This package provides an RViz view controller plugin that allows users to control the RViz camera by publishing CameraPlacement messages (from the view_controller_msgs package) to the /rviz/camera_placement topic.


This package has been released into Hydro and Indigo. Installation through apt-get is easiest in most cases:

sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-rviz-animated-view-controller

sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-rviz-animated-view-controller

Systems for which no binary packages are available will have to build from source. See the relevant tutorials for more information.


See the CameraTest, ControlsTest and SquareTest scripts in the view_controller_msgs package for examples of how to use the functionality provided by this package.
