View Full Version : Intro Sequence focus on player
Nov 9 2001, 17:23
I got an intro sequence where a chopper flies in from the sea (Special = Flying) and the player as "cargo" linked to the chopper.
I want the camera to focus on the player after he has disembarked from the chopper, but it keeps focusing on the chopper as it flies away. Can someone help me please?

Try making a trigger with the condition set as not (playername in choppername) and then set the camera effects from Effects.

CameraName camsettarget HelicoptorName
points the camera at the helicoptor
CameraName camsettarget Soldiername
will change the camera to point at the soldier
in the camera script, wait until the soldier has got out of the helicoptor (Use Damage Inc's command) and then use the command above to point the camera at the soldier.

I'm relatively new to this, so can I ask two questions?
(a) How do you set a player condition set as not in a chopper?
(b) How do you set camera names?

1) as Damage Inc suggested, use not (playername in choppername)
eg Not(aP in Heli1)
2) You set a camera name when you create the camera manually, rather than from the effects button on a trigger.
_cam = "camera" camcreate [0,0,0]
creates a camera called _cam
If you don't know much about camera scripting i'd have a look at a few tutorials, it gives you much more control with cameras.
