[solved]Smooth Scrolling

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • How to do it? Currently I'm trying to create a set of events that makes the camera pan mildly to the direction my character is facing, up if look up is held, pan a little to the right if move right is held, etc; and while I got that to work, its "snapping" immediately to the scroll location instead of smoothly moving there, making the controls feel super choppy.

    I find the "centered view" on the main character very dull and lifeless and want to spice it up just a tiny bit with this method, any help is greatly appreciated.

    CAP file: Help me scroll better please

  • I'm missing the SpriteFont plugin so I can't open it, but a good way to make it smoother is to move it in the direction a small number of pixels (maybe 1?) every X (100?) milliseconds until it is a certain distance from the player.

  • You might want to take a look at my MagiCam plugin; it features pretty much exactly what you're wanting, and it comes with examples demonstrating a similar effect.

    MagiCam Plugin

    I hope you find this of use!

  • Thanks guys! I'll try both of those suggestions out. I love how helpful this community is, appreciate it.

    -Edit-

    Trying "every 100 miliseconds, if look up is held down, then scroll to lerp(Mainchar.Y,Mainchar.Y-75,0.05) - doesn't work.

    The MagiCam plugin is AMAZING. Thanks so much for sharing that. I saw the plug-in before, but I always assumed it was something to do with webcams lol.

    Use

    Always: Scroll to Lerp(ScrollY, Mainchar.Y, 0.05)
