It is possible to create an animated camera movement with LabyMod. It is possible to combine this feature with the cinescopes


Example code

public void playCinematic( Player player, List<Location> points, long duration ) {
    JsonObject cinematic = new JsonObject();

    // Add points
    JsonArray points = new JsonArray();
    for ( Location location : points ) {
        // Add points
        JsonObject point = new JsonObject();
        point.addProperty( "x", location.getX() );
        point.addProperty( "y", location.getY() );
        point.addProperty( "z", location.getZ() );
        point.addProperty( "yaw", location.getYaw() );
        point.addProperty( "pitch", location.getPitch() );
        point.addProperty( "tilt", 0 ); 
        points.add( point );
    cinematic.add( "points", points );

    // Clear the Minecraft Chat
    cinematic.add("clear_chat", true );

    // Cinematic duration in ms
    cinematic.addProperty( "duration", duration );

    // Always teleport the player to the start point
    player.teleport( points.get(0) );

    // The player needs to fly for the cinematic
    player.setAllowFlight( true );

    // Play cinematic
    LabyModProtocol.sendLabyModMessage( player, "cinematic", cinematic );

public void cancelCinematic( Player player ) {
    // Cancel currently playing cinematic
    LabyModProtocol.sendLabyModMessage( player, "cinematic", new JsonObject() ); // Empty object

You will get the following response message with the cinematic key when the player finished the cinematic successfully:

    "completed": true


Make sure that the player can fly (Creative mode or Spectator mode)
