RE: Camera movement
weird i use this in Player.cpp

PHP Code:
Flt  max=DegToRad(900)*Time.d(),
                    
dx =Ms.dir_ds.x*1.7,
                    
dy =Ms.dir_ds.y*1.7*Ms.inv();
                
Clamp(angle.y, -PI_4,PI_4);
                
angle.x-=Mid(dx,-max,max);
                
angle.y+=Mid(dy,-max,max); 

Ugh i am a total idiot. This works i had to use clamp after the angle is set... lame me. Need more coffee!! smile
PHP Code:
Flt  max=DegToRad(900)*Time.d(),
        
dx =Ms.dir_ds.x*1.7,
        
dy =Ms.dir_ds.y*1.7*Ms.inv();
                
        
angle.x-=Mid(dx,-max,max);
        
angle.y+=Mid(dy,-max,max);
        
Clamp(angle.y, -PI_4,PI_4);

RE: Camera movement
I found this helped alot on the case,
the reason is most likely you should make.

You should add the same limitation to the player related pitching code, (y axis?)
or prevent the code to run, something like
if(angle.y >= 0.xxf) to prevent it from constantly running.

Code:
Flt  max=DegToRad(900)*Time.d(),dx =Ms.dir_ds.x*1.7,dy =Ms.dir_ds.y*1.7*Ms.inv();
                Clamp(angle.y, -PI_4,PI_4);
                angle.x-=LerpAngle(Cam.yaw,dx,Time.d()*20);
                angle.y+=LerpAngle(Cam.pitch,dy,Time.d()*20);

atleast make this not constantly run just because of mouse movement
Code:
angle.y+=LerpAngle(Cam.pitch,dy,Time.d()*20);

EDIT: Ah, yeah. : P missed that myself wink

Yes i tried this aswell but it wasnt working cause the Clamp func. But this not a problem anymore.

But limiting the angle speed is OK. But dont u think its kinda slow for a third person game?

RE: Camera movement
Btw a zoom/aim would be nice too, only problem is when i edit the x and z the camera is not in sync with the player... thats cause the camera point is on player but when its changed its not correct anymore.

Any idea?

RE: Camera movement
thats because the code I gave you references Cam.yaw, the base Cam function mostly, so I think you would perhaps use two different Cam function copies,

like

Code:
Flt CamTppDist       ,
CamTppCustom     ,
CamTppCustomYaw  ,
CamTppCustomPitch,
camPitchInterp;

Flt CamTppDist       ,
Cam2TppCustom     ,
Cam2TppCustomYaw  ,
Cam2TppCustomPitch,
cam2PitchInterp;

and in the physics sweep function, you reference the custom cam variables.
this way you dont have to overwrite the Cam.yaw but base the customs on it

or
Code:
Camera      Custcam1;
Camera      Custcam2;
and make them ref the Cam.yaw etc as base values.

I believe this would be easiest, but perhaps the most unoptimized.


Now directly regarding your problem, are you resetting the Cam variables?

RE: Camera movement
Well what do u mean by resetting it?

I use this to change only height atm but need x/z aswell for the zoom.

PHP Code:
camPitchInterp LerpAngle(camPitchInterpCam.pitch/2.0f,Time.d()*3);

Cam.setPosDir(Cam.matrix.pos+Vec(0,camPitchInterp,0), Cam.matrix.zCam.matrix.y);

RE: Camera movement
I am not sure what I meant, was just looking at the
Cam.yaw =CamTppCustomYaw;
Cam.pitch=CamTppCustomPitch;

and I am not sure if Cam.yaw and pitch,dist/y or z needs to be set back to original, that or +='s will change them all the time.

Anyways I am also very drowzy, haven't slept in 37 hours : p so I better call it a night before my start to do headspins, I aint surprised if I don't make any sense at the moment, will take a closer look at this tomorrow.

RE: Camera movement
hehe your are crazy 37 hours is way too long :O

But anyway i can use distance; only problem is you can't go negative.

Having 2 camera's can work but only problem is if you need more then 1 e.g different camera stands this is not gonna work aswell.

So i believe only choice is to change the current camera, maybe change the radius?

Need to think about this 1 tho...

RE: Camera movement
Hmm, I dont know if you solved this.
But in some cases I know of some sets two points, one that is the player and a forward point some distance from the player, which the camera will use as reference point when zooming, and if you have a target system, the camera will zoom to target location.

Also you got
Code:
if(zoom)
{
   D.viewFov (DegToRad(30),FOV_Y);
//or
   D.viewFov (DegToRad(30),FOV_X);
}
Should be possible to do a lerp or smooth motion while activating and return it back when not zooming. : )
