Rotate Camera Over Time


Rotates the camera horizontally and/or vertically by the specified number of degrees over a period of time (in seconds). The angles are relative to the current view. A positive horizontal angle will rotate the camera to the right and a negative horizontal angle will rotate the camera to the left. Likewise, a positive vertical angle will rotate the camera upwards and a negative vertical angle will rotate the camera downwards.

Signature:

Lock Camera must be called before using this function to prevent the player from manually controlling the camera.

Example:

rotate_camera_over_time(-40, 0, 1)

Results: The camera is rotated 40 degrees to the left over a duration of one second.

Use the Rotate Camera Over Time function to focus the camera towards an event taking place during a cutscene. This is particularly useful in first-person mode since the camera rotations will be relative to the player's view.
