DriveWorks Pro 18: Orbit Camera [send feedback...]

Orbit Camera

Creates an Orbit Camera Node with the correct structure in place to allow the LookAt Entity to be applied to a model to follow it.

When the Orbit Camera template is added the following node structure is created:

  • Orbit Camera - the parent node of the template
    • Yaw - applies the yaw (rotation around the vertical axis) using the Rotate Entity
      • Pitch - applies the pitch of the camera using the Rotate Entity
        • Camera - applies the Camera Entity. The address of this node (Root\Orbit Camera\Yaw\Pitch\Camera) can be used in the Target property of the LookAt Entity, applied to a model node, to allow it to follow the camera.

Import Template

To add the template:

  1. Right click on the Root node.
  2. Select Import Template.
  3. Select the required template from the list.
  4. The template will be added to the Root node.
