Objective: Create a dynamic 3rd person camera to follow your player!

Depending on what type of game you are creating you may be interested in creating a 3rd person perspective. Thankfully Cinemachine thought of this and have made this easy for us. One of the seven options under the body setting of a virtual camera is 3rd person follow.

Then you want to select you player and set them as the Follow object.

As you can see the camera snaps behind the player, and it will follow you around your scenes. Under the body settings you can adjust your cameras position.

You can also adjust the dampening, so the camera follows you as harshly of loosely as you like.

You can fully adjust these to create you dream 3rd person camera. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your cameras and I’ll see you in the next tutorial!
