I'm trying to figure out what you are asking, but I guess what you could do is make the camera set vehicle to an object that is moving a certain direction so that object has it's own positioning, but the camera moves with it and can orient in whatever direction.

i'm really sorry about my poor english. And many thanks to your reply.

I don't need the camera to orient in whatever direction. I just want it to point at the person's back. Have you ever play the android game 'Temple Run'? The view is just in that way.

i hope you could understand this time.

PS: i'm a chinese. so that's the reason why.....

Set the camera's vehicle to the person, and then the camera will always move with the person.


Thank you for taking the time to read this signature. This signature loves you.

Temple Run, I see now. Yes, you can make the camera setvehicle to an object that is moving forward. Make the player set vehicle to that object and just place the camera wherever you want it to look. By adding the seperate object controlling the direction, you are able to move the persons limbs easier.
