Moving towards in screen coordinates
« on: April 21, 2021, 07:12:09 AM »
Hello to everyone,
I am working on missile lock system. Want i want to do is when raycasting detects object that UI element (image of lock system) move to 3d object and stays until rocket detroy object even if object is moving. I want to do that in 2d coordinates that image is always visible to camera and does not go in depth in forward axis. I have screen coordinates of both objects just dont know how to translate image over time. So far i try tween actions,Vector2 move towards and nothing works as expected. Any hints if I am missing something obvius?

Hi.
if its ui (canvas)
You probably want to use 'Get Position' (3d object) 'Word to Screen Point' and 'Rect Transform Set Local Position'
Ecosystem might not work at the moment

Thank you,i managed that part but i want that when target is recognized this image in Canvas comes slowly from corner towards the target. What action should i use with this obtained previous screen coordinates? I try so far Vector2 Move towards,translate position,tween position and Move Towards. Nothing works as expected.

Hi.
Maybe 'Tween UI Position' can help there :)
