MT: Cam moves in strange directions.

Post by ElmigoAlmere » 02 Jul 2009 15:12

Hello,
I have a problem with MT. I don't know what it is, I think a bug or something? If I try to let the Path Camera move in directions that I want, I place the cam on a place at the start key in the time-bar. Then I move the camera to an other direction with a key frame. The camera should move from the start key place, to the key frame place, to the end key place. But thats not what happens. This is what happens: The camera goes from the start key place in a random direction I didn't set, to the key frame position. Mostly it moves in a direction underground or in a building, so I can see the black game-less area.

I don't know how I can explain the problem in other words :(
My English is not very good, I'm from Holland.
I hope its clearly enough to understand the problem.

Pleasseee someone have a solution for this? Its frustrating me so much, cause I have this problem since I bought TMUF.

Maybe theres an expansion pack or something for TMUF that I missed? I really don't know. Please tell me if you have a solution for this. :thumbsup:

Don't use path cam. That's easy enough. Path cam is only really for game intros where you're moving in straight lines.

Okay thank you, but the Costum Camera is not so smooth, or is this an option I can select so its smoother?

Hmm. Best trying to remove Path cam, then make a new one.

I already tried. But I only know that in Costum camera I can select 'Hermite' as cam type. That gives smoother moves but also moves in strange directions.. As well as the other camera types..

Is there really no way to fix this?

And thx for your reply anyways ^^

Hehe...don't select Hermite. Have you read the TM-Creative's webpage? It explains there that Hermite smoothes out the camera moves between ALL the keys, not just A-B, B-C, C-D, and so on. So, if you want better cam moves, use Linear Interpolation. Go to http://tm-creative.org (I think) for more info. ^_^ :lovetm
