Camera Follow Lock to one position.
« on: July 12, 2019, 07:32:38 AM »
Hey Guys,

I am trying to follow a camera on Players Movement. I am getting Players position and then Giving that PlayerY to Set Position to the Camera and It is working fine. I just want to lock this Movement to - Y Axis and When it Jumps Camera should not move. Only when it falls to a Platform. Is there anyway i can do something with the Float i am Getting to lock this Negative Vertical Position ?

Hi.
There is a "SmoothFollowObject" on the Ecosystem you can set it to horizontal/Vertical/Both.

Set one for horizontal.

Then for vertical you need to trigger it for example when you land on the platform or for example when distance is larger than some value.
You will need to play around and see what works best.

Have you tried attaching a follow object to the player, like 3 meters back or what ever.   Then have the camera follow that object, and look at the player or another object ahead of the player.   Then camera follow with a finished distance set to like .1.  Then compare some distances and jump logic to set the camera follow back to state.

Hey man, Sorry for late, I was actually able to do it via C# Script. It was just attaching camera! it was easier in Coding so i went for it.
