Title: 50 Camera Mistakes
Post by: Draco18s on May 18, 2016, 11:41:01 AM
Based on the video I've seen for RR, you're already using a camera system that handles most (if not all) of them, but I still found this GDC presentation rather informative.  There's a lot of problems that come from using a 3rd-person dynamic camera.

Nice, I'll have to check that out.  I spent a few weeks on the camera already, but there's a few things I'm not super happy with just yet.  3rd person cameras are definitely a fine art, heh.

Indeed!
One of the first things the presenter says is, "I had 100 things, but I had to shorten the list to fit it into the hour."

Youtube's been suggesting a lot of GDC, Game Maker, and suchlike lately (not that I mind, of course). So I've run into some neat tidbits.
