From the information that I know of, Helicopters do have the capability to watch the round from in cockpit. I can't be 100% sure of that because like you said, sources are limited.
Most of the information that I can gather just shows "after-the-fact" footage.
The pilot will mostly see through the "gun cam" in a helicopter, which is usually their targeting eye piece. Some of those can zoom very far so they have a clear idea of what is going on.
Military weaponry uses cameras with laser guided ammunition, mostly infrared from what I know, so it can follow the beam projected from the aircraft. This may be most of the footage you see, is from that camera.
I will try to do more digging for you when I get a chance, but I'm giving what I know.
