Camera following the player [SOLVED]
« on: November 11, 2013, 08:52:34 PM »
I took advantage of the sale that hutong has right now. I was able to make an object move, but I'm unable to have the camera follow it. How is that done.

Thanks.

Hi,

 It depends what you expect really, can you describe more the type of game and how the camera should behave? maybe a video example of something similar?

bye,

There are several good video tutorials for Playmaker. Have you watched this one?

A third person game.

Starting at 3:30, I tried Smooth Look At Direction. Doesn't work and makes my cube spin.

Hi,

 How do you control your cube? ( I guess you mean the camera is spinning around the cube right?)

Camera isn't spinning. The cube(player) is though.

Sounds like you've got the fundamentals wrong, and your replies aren't exactly helpful.

Why not post a few screenshots of your setup?

For actions I added Controller Simple Move and Get Axis Vector. Fixed the camera so it's working now.
