Hi,

 can you list these Camera Modes? I am not sure I understand what you mean. Do you mean actions that control cameras?

doing a reverse camera can be achieved by inserting another gameobject in between the camer and the target and rotate that proxy object 180 and have the camera always targeting and looking at the proxy and not the character,

Bye,

 Jean

Hi,

In playmaker car setup 4 camera modes available. There are

1. Camera 360
2. Camera follow
3. camera inside
4. camera side

I want to add another mode "camera reverse" like camera follow.

In camera follow mode camera showing back from the car. In camera reverse mode I want to show front from the car. just see attached image.

3rd person -> camera follow mode
Reverse -> camera reverse mode

Many Thanks!!

Hi,
When in reverse mode can try to rotate by 180 the empty gameobject Camera follow in the car prefab, when leaving the reverse, put it back facing forward.

You could also set up and parent 3 different cameras and switch between them within your car object.
So on car model create new camera. Set the camera where you want it in Editor.
Then with playmaker set it to switch to the cameras with whatever method you want to use. I.e press button 1, 2 or 3
