Syncing wow camera angles between characters

Really struggling with getting my camera to the same place on all toons in wow. They need to line up for gathering. I have tried various CVar commands, to set the camera on a toon to where I want it, then repeat the same commands on the other toons. Planning to then save the settings to one of the camera views. But nothing I do seems to change the camera on an individual toon.
Tried things like
/console cameraDistance 2.0
/run SetCVar("cameraDistance", 3.0)

and many other variations, nothing changes.

Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

Or if I a making this too complicated, another way.

Thanks

I'm curious - Did you find these commands in a multiboxing gathering guide, or somewhere else?

Either way, what you're probably looking for is a SetView macro.

I looked at your gathering video, but my understanding was the SetView just picked something that had been set in that particular camera view, like Setview (4) just found what 4 was move the camera to that. I stupidly lol, played with manually moving the camera and saved that in setview 4.

But cant get the other toons lined up to the same place.

And got those from the wiki, but just had the variable names with no real help on the format of the command

Okay, well either use ResetView(#) or just look at the in-game key binds to handle setting, saving, and resetting camera views.
