I have implemented a follow camera in Unity 3D. However, if the player object rotates, the camera does not rotate with it. To fix this I used RotateAround as follows:
playerRotation = CastPositive(player.EulerAngles.y) //guarantees 0-360 cameraRotation = CastPositive(transform.EulerAngles.y) difference = playerRotation - cameraRotation transform.RotateAround(player.position, Vector3.up, difference * time.deltaTime)
This works in general. However at some point the difference snaps from -50 to 210. When this happens, the camera swings in the opposite direction all the way round the player object, instead of continuing on its orbit.
How can I avoid this value jump?
- I've tried clamping the various values to no avail, but maybe I've missed something?
