I can't seem to understand why in every youtube minecraft video, the person recording has view bobbing turned off.
Why is that?
Does it prevent lag?
Does it make you move faster?

I personally love the view bobbing as it is more realistic and watching a screen with nothing moving but the blocks around you seems dull. It also makes it seem like you are walking very slow.

I know it is a stupid question but can I please get an answer?

Thanks. :iapprove:

It's all about preference. I could go and make a new thread right now ranting about why people don't turn bobbing off, but honestly I don't care

At first, I didnt even knew what the option did mean.

I rememeber to have read somewhere that it *DOES* make a litte more of lag, but nothing noticeable (I am pretty sure it was less than 1 fps).

Besides that yeah I agree with OP. Altougt I didnt noticed that a lot of people on the videos turn them off.

I used it for a while but i started to get a headache from it, so I just turn it off.  I guess everyone has a different reason though, but I didn't see any difference in fps with it on or off though.

There IS a difference on fps, with its really retarded, so it dosnt matters (About 1 fps. maybe even less than that).

I have it on most of the time. I don't get sick or anything from it, but I like watching people play with it off sometimes. Other times I don't really notice they have it off.

The videos look sleeker and more streamlined without the view bobbing on, I just think its plain unnecesary, I dont view bob IRL, and as we know minecraft is totally IRL, so I dont need viewbob their either!
MCBak - Simplify backing up and moving Minecraft saves -> Im interested!

I wish I could have bobbing on, but it does make minecraft lag more so I had to turn it off.

It's much more attractive on, and I really can't stand having it off long enough to check if it effects my fps.

*facepalm*

"Lag", people?  Seriously?  You can't lag in multiplayer.  In the only instances I can think of where "lag" applies to video performance, either you have some serious hardware issues where the card isn't able to send already rendered frames to the display at full speed, or you have mice chewing through your HDMI cables.  "Low framerate" to the dark side will not lead you.

You view bob in real life if you have normal legs and aren't riding everywhere on a Segway or wheelchair.  The difference is that most people's brains will compensate for it automatically.  (Of course, now that you read this, you'll go walking or running outside and pay attention to it and it will mess you up!  :P  )
