Keep the camera at the same distance from ground
« on: June 15, 2018, 04:26:51 PM »
Hello world !

Well, I've been playing with terragen quite a wile and my computer don't really like it (nobody cares including me)  ::)

I'm trying to create some animations and for that, I would like to keep the camera at 1.75m from the ground (standard height of an human) and I'm really really [...] really borred of changing the position of the camera at each key frame... Is there a way to say "the camera stays at this height, and I just control it's X-Y positioning." ?  :D
Something like the "fix camera height" that seemed to exist on Terragen V1

Maybe some functions can do the trick, but how to link them to the camera position?

Thanks for your answers :)

There is no included feature for this, and you can't control an arbitrary setting (like camera height) by an external input, so I don't think it could be done with function nodes either unfortunately. Something for us to potentially think about for future implementation though.
