Cam.setSpherical() to Cam.setFromAt()
Hey!

I'm close to finishing the whole camera handling in my game and the last thing to do is smooth transition from camera which is set spherical around the player to camera which is set from a certain position next to the player. This image should clear things up:

I would like to do something like this:
Code:
current_cam_pos = Lerp(current_cam_pos, desired_cam_pos, step);
current_cam_at = Lerp(current_cam_at, desired_cam_at, step);

Cam.setFromAt(current_cam_pos, current_cam_at);

The problem is... I can't get it working as there is no function to get camera's position straight off. I mean that when camera is set spherical its position is described by: position (center of the sphere), dist and pitch.

If I could somehow calculate what its posistion is at a certain moment, I could do the smooth transition I came up with!

Thanks,
Kiekos

Not quite understand the questions.

Do you mean getting camera's position using Cam.matrix.pos?

That's probably it... I'm gonna check in a sec and let you know. Thanks!

EDIT: Yep, works! There's one more thing I still don't know... Why did I put this thread in graphics forum? It shouldn't be here grin
