Default setting a pose with the camera -> try dummy objects - 10-31-2005, 01:50 PM

If I understand you correctly, you're trying to name a location/orientation that a camera can then be returned to?

In that case, you don't want to pose the camera (which is a reasonable thing to have tried).

Instead, try using a "dummy object."

When you are adding objects, click on the "more controls >>" button.

THen you get a set of controsl, including "drop dummy at camera." That creates a "dummy object" called "Dummy." Then, in your code, you can say

camera.moveTo(Dummy)

Hope this helps!
