Dynamic Cam Custom Situation Question

Hello. I am trying to make custom situations in dynamic cam so it will zoom out slightly when I am doing some of my more impact-full abilities kind of like it does in the newest god of war. I can get it to work on channeled spells like this...

-Events-
UNIT_SPELLCAST_START, UNIT_SPELLCAST_STOP, UNIT_SPELLCAST_SUCCEEDED, UNIT_SPELLCAST_CHANNEL_START, UNIT_SPELLCAST_CHANNEL_STOP, UNIT_SPELLCAST_CHANNEL_UPDATE, UNIT_SPELLCAST_INTERRUPTED

-Condition-
return UnitChannelInfo("player") == GetSpellInfo(111111)

And on non channeled, casted spells like this.

-Events-
UNIT_SPELLCAST_START, UNIT_SPELLCAST_STOP, UNIT_SPELLCAST_SUCCEEDED, UNIT_SPELLCAST_INTERRUPTED

-Condition-
return UnitCastingInfo("player") == GetSpellInfo(111111)

I am trying to figure out a way to do Instant Cast Spells such as Chi Torpedo, or Serpent Kick, and I can't find any info about what I need to modify to make that happen. I know nothing about LUA so I am just basically trying things I can google or copying from other custom situations that I can find. Any ideas I could try would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Instant cast spells only generate UNIT_SPELLCAST_SUCCEEDED.
Also you can use /etrace

That's right. The DynamicCam situations are intended for ongoing states, which have enter and exit events and whose condition can be checked. An instant spellcast does not really have a condition to be checked. You would have to check the arguments of the enter event (UNIT_SPELLCAST_SUCCEEDED) to see which spell it was and store it in a variable, such that it can be checked by the situation condition.

I made a feature request but cannot say when I will have time for that...

Thank you for the responses!

Just for a little more info of what I was trying to do for future reference. I am trying a very zoomed in camera in most cases. I was hoping I could have it zoom out when I press Chi-Torpedo, or Flying Serpent Kick and stay that way for the entire animation so I could see where I was going a bit better (though its not a huge problem tbh) or even just for the effect.

One more question I have while I'm at it. Is it possible to have a situation trigger on an assigned key press, and then have it revert back to whatever the current situation is (i.e. world combat etc...) with another key press?

This is also not possible with the way situations currently work, because there is no "key-pressed" event let alone a way to check the condition of which key has been previously pressed. Maybe the best way to achieve this would be a slash-command that allows you to manually enter a situation setting its priority to max and another slash-command to undo it. Will put it on my list...
