Is there a way to attach a camera to follow a subject without the ability to change the camera views rotation through RMB and drag? I have explored all of the camera types but none seem to meet this criteria. This makes me think that I’ll have to create a custom following system?
Attaching Camera to subject which is locked from rotating by user input
Then it does not follow the subject. I just noticed that I only mentioned “Attached” and left out that criteria so I will edit my post; sorry about that.
Easiest way for me would be to set cameraType to Scriptable and manually set the cframe using RunService.RenderStepped
Edit: I should note that I am tracking an object running on a separate Heartbeat loop which is being moved using CFrames; so that is the cause of the jittering I think.
Yep, that was my alternative but sadly there is a noticeable jittering effect when zoomed in on the subject.
while Heartbeat:wait() do Camera.CoordinateFrame = CFrame.new((Subject.CFrame * CFrame.new(0, 100, 0)).p, Subject.CFrame.p) end
Use BindToRenderStep, my dude. It stutters because the camera’s CFrame updates before the character’s position updates in a given frame. Optimally, you’d want the camera to update after the character has moved, not before.
RunService:BindToRenderStep ( "camera", Enum.RenderPriority.Camera.Value, function () Camera.CFrame = CFrame.new((Subject.CFrame * CFrame.new(0, 100, 0)).p, Subject.CFrame.p) end )

Awesome! I had no clue this was a thing, thanks for the help.
