Zoom size of orthographic camera plz!
« on: December 25, 2012, 12:46:03 AM »
So that I can zoom in on my 2d character when the action gets intense!

To elaborate, currently when setting up an orthographic camera for a 2d game you specify the size instead of changing the z axis to determine how big ("close") your scene seems. If there was an action to gradiate a size change, it would be functionally equivalent to zooming in.

ie, ortho camera size starts out as 3, quickly "iterates" to 2.

If there's another way of accomplishing this that I don't know about, plz forgive, I'm noob here.

Try using Set Property.

If you haven't used it before make sure you Lock the FSM you're working with and drag the camera component into the field.

I have never tried this before but hopefully you'll have success :)
