As you know, in New Super Mario Bross Wii for example, the camera doesn't follow exactly the player, it smoothly moves a little % of the screen in front of Mario so there is a bigger part of the screen showing things that Mario is moving to (less focused on what he's leaving behind). http://youtu.be/BH8CzKml6xg
I tryed simulating this making the camera follow an invisible point that moves with "lerp" to Player position + 100 when Player is looking right, and to Player position -100 when he's looking left. The problem is that the "lerp" speed movement is relative to the Player movement speed, so if he's static, the camera point can move normally but if he's moving, it can't catch him. Or if i make the camera movement faster to catch the Player when hes moving, it's too fast when hes static.
I would like to know if there is another way to do this, or a way to make the camera movement speed be the same independently of the Player movement.
