    I use this:
    Code:
    alias +tv_direct "dota_spectator_mode 1; dota_camera_distance 1800"
    alias -tv_direct "dota_spectator_mode 0; dota_camera_distance 1134"
    bind j +tv_direct
    You hold your key (here: j) to switch to free cam and take altitude. only downside is you have to wait a few seconds(watching the middle of the map) before Directed Mode focus on a new action.

    Or use this to cycle between spectator modes (but the spectator panel doesn't get updated to let you know in wich mode you're in):
    Code:
    bind k "incrementvar dota_spectator_mode 0 3 1"

    Something in this direction is heaviely needed!
    CvPs Suggestion + if you click on a hero (at the scene or in the top) the camera should concentrate on him (not simply "the hero is always in the mid of the screen", more like the smart fallowing, but with more focus on this hero), for the 10 seconds.

    Would be sooo awsome and most important, it would increase the spectating so much.

    Here is what it should be imo:

    if you edge pan or use arrow keys to move camera or click on any hero/unit -> directed camera is turned off.

    It automatically resumes after 10 seconds of inactivity from you.

    Need a button to have quick flip between directed and free camera, essentially.

    Although I really like the idea of it being on free camera manual control if you are moving the mouse and on directed otherwise. Also let us set the detection duration, default maybe 10 secs.

    I would also like the directed mode to randomly select a different hero every once in a while as that way I don't have to click something to see their inventory.
