  Position=(-195.0607, -10.2987, -76.3508)
  Orientation=(-0.0172, -0.7582, 0.0000)
  Fov=(30.0000, 15.0000)
  Color=(0, 0, 0)
  ClipPlanes=(1.000000, 1000.000000)
  Size=(1.000000, 1.000000)
  Center=(0.500000, 0.500000)
  ActivationLocation=(-221.6285, -0.8030, -154.1340)

ok i know the position is x,z,y and the values are negative, same applies to activation location
i'm not sure how to work orientation, especially for a static camera
not sure on clipplanes
size and center i'm not worried about
the flags1 and flags2, what are they for?
what does activation radius do and does it have to be big or small especially in the usage of multiple cameras in a given area
Groups= not sure what it does either
biggest reason i ask is i'd like to create 2 sets of camera for a track that i am doing and not sure how to do it properly and get them to show properly

I'm at work, but from memory:
>orientation is in pitch, yaw, roll
>so the first number points the camera up/down
>the second number spins the camera
>and the third number tilts the camera sideways like a boat listing to one side
>clipplanes refer to when the camera cuts off items
>in your example above anything less than 1meter or greater than 1000meters will not show up
>activation radius is the distance around the activation location (where the camera can become active)
>the activation location is at the center of the activation radius
>from your example above, draw a 30meter circle around the activation location to see where that camera takes effect
>usually most people make the activation radius something like 30 to 50meters
with multiple cameras try not to have the activation radius overlap or the wrong camera will likely turn-on
