How do i make it so i can look around like a player with a stationary camera

Right now i want to look around like this

but the best I got was this

I cant find any dev forums on how to do it either.
PLEASE help, thank you


You can simply do that by changing the CameraSubject property in the camera instance.

what would I change it to though?

if i got it right, you want to make so the camera moves around the player like a third person shooter for example. You can do that by locking the mouse in the center.

you can use this:

game:GetService("UserInputService").MouseBehavior = Enum.MouseBehavior.LockCenter

you can also hide the mouse if ya want, so it doesnt get in the way

when i do that it just stays in the center

im kinda confused now, could ya explain a little better what do ya want?

i want to be able to look around normally just with the camera position at a different place and not focused on the character as if I’m in first person

you could set the camera subject to the instance that you want to be viewing instead, and if ya want to go back to your character, you just set the camera subject to your humanoid

alas… there be no instance to set it to
I want to be looking around like this:

just not from my character but from a stationary camera like this(cube being the camera cframe):

could this help ya?

Its just staying stationary not moving at all

local runservice = game:GetService("RunService")
local userinpuservice = game:GetService("UserInputService")
local camera = game.Workspace.CurrentCamera
local player = game.Players.LocalPlayer
local mouse = player:GetMouse()
local setup = game.Workspace["Player Setup"]
local camerapart = setup:WaitForChild("Camera")
camera.CameraType = Enum.CameraType.Fixed
	camera.CFrame = camerapart.CFrame
	local part ="Part")
	part.CFrame =
	part.Parent = workspace
	camera.CameraSubject = part

(I’ve seen the same forum but figured it wouldn’t work)

The camera type is on fixed, it aint gonna move like that, i dont remember whats the one who lets you move, but try to set it to others and keep testing them

ive tried all of them but none seemed to have worked

the camera cframe is being set to the camera part every frame, when you try to move it, its just gonna snap back

I feel like the closest ive got is with this

camera.CameraType = Enum.CameraType.Scriptable
	camera.CFrame = camerapart.CFrame
	camera.CFrame =,mouse.Hit.Position)


Only if the mouse isn’t locked but I want the mouse locked

you cant lock it on the center?

mouse position wont move if its in the center making it obsolete

you could try to hide the mouse, so it wont look weird

is there any way to stop the mouse from going off screen or hitting core GUI though?
would mouse delta work?
or userinputservice MouseMovement work?

i dont think there is, i would recommend try rewriting your code and try to find another way to do it, theres probably a easier way to it, sadly i cant help ya too much with this
