    Caught on camera!
    Aperture is a camera management plugin, wherein players can create cameras and view their footage in real-time. Unlike many other camera plugins, Aperture works from anywhere on your server by displaying camera footage in 3D space. Say goodbye to the days of teleport-based cameras! With Aperture, worrying who might be visiting your house is a thing of the past.


    To create a camera, simply place a camera block somewhere in the world. After giving it a name, that camera can be viewed from anywhere. Need to share the camera footage with someone else? Easy! Aperture makes sharing camera access with others a breeze. Wish to delete a camera? Even easier! Right-clicking inside the camera selection menu is all you need to do.

    This plugin was tested with default settings on a 1GB Spigot 1.12.2 server, and had an average TPS of 19.9

    NEW: Share cameras with the permission node aperture.camera.<camera name> or aperture.camera.*

    Find a bug? Unable to load the plugin? Experiencing lag? Have a suggestion? Please feel free to drop a message in the Discussion forum, or send me a Private Message! Here are some tips to troubleshoot common problems:
    1. Ensure your server is running Spigot 1.9 or newer
    2. Ensure you have the latest version of ProtocolLib installed
    3. Check your plugin configuration for any formatting issues or typing mistakes
    Known issues / planned features:
    • Some users may experience slight graphical bugs when using this plugin; this is actively being looked into, and does not impede the functionality of the plugin whatsoever.
    MySQL Support:
    • Ensure that your Address field includes the port to your MySQL server (ex. "sql.myserver.com:3306")
    • Ensure that your server supports MySQL - other versions of SQL may act differently, and haven't been tested.

    Players and mobs lag wildly. Moved once a second approximately. It's horrible. I regret that I bought the plugin.

      Hey there! Sorry to hear you're encountering lag problems. The camera footage is configured to update only one per second to avoid any actual server lag, so this isn't a bug. I can look into making this configurable, but as of now, this was intentional.
