Camera movement delay/sensitivity issue

Just started playing SWTOR yesterday. Haven't had much time to do so, but I'm looking forward to getting a bit more time in during the next couple of weeks.


I noticed something odd when I was using the camera controls to look around while holding the right mouse button. I've heard it mentioned a few times, but nothing really addressing it as far as I can tell.

I have a split second delay when moving the camera in any direction. It's not a huge deal, but it is very frustrating when combined with the strangely sensitive camera controls. It has made navigating the world a bit of a chore at times.

Granted, I did get used to it a bit after an hour of play, but occasionally I'd forget and move my mouse as quickly as I'm used to, and suddenly I had no idea which direction I was facing.

I realize that all MMOs launch with some issues, and as those go, this is relatively minor. Though it has been rather annoying to me.

I was wondering if anyone has been having similar issues, and if there is some kind of solution out there I may have missed.

I'd appreciate any help in this area.

That is something that happened to me in beta and I'm almost positive it was related to graphics settings. I would reset the graphics properties to low and hit apply and see if that helps. If it does, then try medium or high (remember to hit apply after).

Having the same issue even tho I lowered my graphic settings. I have a decent computer so that's not the problem.
