How do I stop mouse.hit from hitting camera?

Hi, I want to make a script that moves a model to your mouse position. Currently, it is moving it but unfortunately it is coming closer to the camera position over time which is confusing me.

- This is how close it comes to the camera.

I want it to stay on the ground, and not come closer to the camera. Thanks - lux

Make sure you Filter the Part with TargetFilter, this will make it so the Mouse will ignore the Part

Mouse.TargetFilter = Part -- Filters Part

The Reason its going towards the Camera is because the Hit Position is on the Part, if you are setting its position to the Hit Position, it will constantly update towards the Camera as it will detect the Hit Position on the Part, TargetFilter will prevent this, making it ignore the Part entirely, so it will touch the Baseplate, not the Part intersecting it.

local Trampoline = nil
local player = game.Players.LocalPlayer
local Mouse = player:GetMouse()
local CurrentPosition = nil
local Equipped = false
Mouse.TargetFilter = game.Workspace.CurrentCamera
local part ="Part", game.Workspace)
part.Anchored = true
part.CanCollide = false
part.Size =,1,1)
part.Transparency = 1

		if Equipped == true then
			CurrentPosition = game.Players.LocalPlayer.Character.Humanoid.TargetPoint
			if Trampoline ~= nil then
				part.Position = CurrentPosition
	Equipped = true
	if player then
		if Trampoline == nil then
			local Trampolinez = game.ReplicatedStorage.FakeTramp:Clone()
			Trampolinez.Parent = game.Workspace
			Trampoline = Trampolinez
			for i,v in pairs(Trampolinez:GetChildren()) do
				if v:IsA("BasePart") then
					Mouse.TargetFilter = v
	Equipped = false
	if Trampoline ~= nil then
		Trampoline = nil

I did this though

You can’t set multiple TargetFilters on mouse sadly.
The best choice for this is Raycasting.

Oh interesting, how would I do this with raycasting though? Just shoot a raycast, but from where?

Mouse location, heres an example

local RayParams =
RayParams.FilterDescendantsInstances = {AllParts:GetChildren()} -- Or whatever
RayParams.FilterType = Enum.RaycastFilterType.Blacklist

local Raycast = workspace:Raycast(LocalPlayer.Character.Humanoid.RootPart.Position, Mouse.Hit, RayParams)

if Raycast then
 --blah blah

SHOULD WORK I currently cannot test as I am working on a project.

Yeah oof, the Mouse.Hit part isn’t a direction it is saying but when I tried Mouse.Hit.LookVector, nothing happened.

While that will work, the ray will hit parts that it otherwise wouldn’t, since the ray is coming from the character and not the camera. This is code I use in my own game

local MouseRay = workspace.CurrentCamera:ViewportPointToRay(Mouse.X,Mouse.Y,1)|
local RaycastResult = workspace:Raycast(MouseRay.Origin,MouseRay.Direction*5000,Mouse.RaycastParams)|

It’s a module that mimics the mouse object but uses UserInputService and such, so Mouse.X is actually UserInputService:GetMouseLocation().X under the hood

You can still easily get away by using Mouse.TargetFilter, in this case by just setting it to the model. While using raycasting is better because of that, and mouse got deprecated for like a day lol, using mouse is a lot simpler and fine, really.

Here is how to make a raycast with the mouse

local mouse = game.Players.LocalPlayer:GetMouse()
local params =
params.FilterDescendantsInstances = {} -- this is the list of things to not interact with
local distance = 1000

local ray = workspace:Raycast(mouse.UnitRay.Origin, mouse.UnitRay.Direction * distance, params)

I hope this helps!

s local Mouse = game.Players.LocalPlayer:GetMouse() Mouse.Button1Down:connect(function() local Part = Mouse.Target if Part then Part:MoveTo(Mouse.Hit.p) end end)

The problem is that you’re setting your mouse target filter to parts. This means that when you’re moving your mouse over to the model, the mouse is hitting the camera, which is a part.

To fix this, you need to change your mouse target filter.

local Mouse = game.Players.LocalPlayer:GetMouse() Mouse.TargetFilter = workspace – Filters the Workspace Mouse.Button1Down:connect(function() local Part = Mouse.Target if Part then Part:MoveTo(Mouse.Hit.p) end end)

Now, when you click on the part, it’ll move there.
