How To Make Camera Transition Smooth in ETS2
- Please close or stop the ETS 2 game (if it is being played)
- Download the "Smooth Camera Interior" plug-in on this page: https://hary309.github.io/projects/hry-plugins/hry-sic
- Extract the file then double-click or install the plug-in
- During the installation process, you will be asked to choose a file between ATS (American Truck Simulator) and ETS2 (Euro Truck Simulator 2). Please remove the checklist on the ATS option and activate the checklist on ETS2 because we only need to install the plugin on ETS2. Then click the Next button.
- The next process is to select the directory where your ETS2 game is installed. Please click the Browse button then locate and select the main folder where the ETS2 game is installed, usually in the following directory: ".... SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Euro Truck Simulator 2" then please click the OK button. Then click the button > Next > Install. Wait until the installation process is complete.
- At this stage the plug-in installation process is complete. This feature will be activated automatically when we open the ETS2 game.

For me personally, this plug-in is very useful and helpful when I'm using the interior camera or the camera in the truck (cockpit view). Before using this smooth interior camera, when looking right and left it felt rough and sometimes made me a little dizzy.
If you are still confused, please also see the video version of the tutorial below.
Can't you use the mouse to look right and left?
Indeed, visual camera movement can also be done using the mouse, without having to use this plug-in. But when driving a truck, let alone using the steering wheel, sometimes it takes both hands on the wheel when performing maneuvers such as turning and parking.
Back again to their respective preferences, if you think it's better to use the mouse, then please continue. The most important thing when playing games is that we enjoy it, it can improve mood so that our feelings become happier.
