Problem: Getting a camera to follow a ball.
I am looking at getting a game to have a camera follow a ball like this:
So that is, if a user moves on the X-Axis the camera will yaw around and now when a play presses forward it goes in the forward direction of the camera. I am really stuggling to get the camera to yaw around the y axis to achieve this.
Methods I have tried:
- Placing the camera as a child of the ball entity, with no scripts. Like so:
Problem: The camera rotates with the ball, causing the camera to be totally crazy.
- Having a camera as a root entity, and adding a follow script found in one of the tutorials:
You can find that with same PC link as above, but with 1069260 as the id.
Problem: The camera does not rotate around the y-axis so the camera is always facing the forward direction of the ball.
- Editing the ‘3rd person controller’ tutorial to suit my needs

This one has yielded the closest thing to success, but I am struggling to get the camera to feel less jolty.
I don’t really understand how to lerp this line:
Found in ‘CameraMovement.js’ under postUpdate().
Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to solve this? I know my understanding is a little limited and I proberly need to learn all this a little bit more, but was wondering if anyone has solved a similar problem?
If not, can anyone point me to some good learning resources for this exact problem?
Sorry, as a new user I can only post two links.
