This is my first time using playcanvas, I am doing interior project. I can not find solution how to move first person camera smoothly based on left click at any point on the floor.
I saw there is an example project provided to do same thing, it is called WEBXR VR LAB, but the camera does not move smoothly like the example I provided (see the video).
Also the second thing is how to show its cursor when we begin play it ? on the webxr vr lab tutorial, the cursor is hidden if we start playing it.
@YahyaNawir and welcome,
You can smoothly move between two positions using a number of ways. One common way is to use a tween to make a smooth transition between two positions. Check this manual page on how to add the PlayCanvas tween library to your project:
Another way is to use a simple vector lerp as is demonstrated in this point and click example:
Most likely in that example somewhere the mouse cursor is locked. You can search for the following line and comment it out:
Here is an explanation on what it does:

@YahyaNawir, in addition to what @Leonidas said, if you don’t want your camera moving through solid walls, then you might want to take a look at some pathfinding solution. GitHub - schteppe/PathFinding3D.js: Path-finding library for 2D or 3D graphs is a good open source project, while you can also look at @Leonidas’s pathfinding product.

I was browsing the
PlayCanvas Awesome List.
It links to this app:
Welcome to our 3D Virtual Gallery: In 2020, 11 members of the Family for Every Child alliance asked children and young people that they work with to give expression to their thoughts, feelings and experiences of life during the COVID-19 pandemic
It seems to be a good example of what you want to do.
