Like from behind? You can't do that, the camera is limited to two dimensions.

If you want to rotate the view following the car, yes you can. Toggle it in the follow action.

On a separate subject, Bind to layout seems to ignore zoom.
And there's some 1-frame camera jolt when zoomed that I can't get rid of.


On another note: this is so awesome and needs to be finished :D

Hi. Is there any chance this can be fixed?

I'd like to use it for a game that zooms around a lot and this 'bind to layout' thing kind of breaks everything. Also, cameras seem jittery for some reason.
Might go with events instead, which would suck because this plugin has all I want.

Ive been using this for the game I am currently working on but for some reason it does not work when I run the layout in debug mode. Is this a common thing or something that only happens to me....

Doesn't work for me either, I get a black screen. Also, the cameras quit working after loading a game (I'm using system object's "save/load to disk"). Any chance this could be fixed? Pleeease?

It's a known bug, but I don't know what's causing it. I'm currently rewriting the whole thing though, so I'm hoping this gets ironed out.

The save/load thing is something I'm hoping to fix with the rewrite as well.
