How to make character rotate with camera

basically i want this script to also move the player’s character with the camera so it faces the same direction. this will be used to aim a bow and arrow
any help is much appreciated thank you :v:
THIS IS MY SCRIPT in StarterCharacterScripts

local RunService = game:GetService("RunService")
local UserInputService = game:GetService("UserInputService")

local playerModel = script.Parent
local humanoid = playerModel:WaitForChild("Humanoid")

local focusing = false

UserInputService.InputBegan:Connect(function(input)
	if (input.KeyCode == Enum.KeyCode.F) then
		if focusing == true then
			focusing = false
			humanoid.CameraOffset = Vector3.new(0, 0, 0)
			UserInputService.MouseBehavior = Enum.MouseBehavior.Default
			UserInputService.MouseIconEnabled = true
		else
			focusing = true
			humanoid.CameraOffset = Vector3.new(4, 1, 0)
			UserInputService.MouseBehavior = Enum.MouseBehavior.LockCenter
			UserInputService.MouseIconEnabled = false
		end
	end
end)

while game:GetService("RunService").RenderStepped:Wait() do
	if focusing == true then -- if the aim cam is enabled
		--i would think the code for that would go in a RenderStepped event
	end
end

THIS IS WHAT I HAVE SO FAR

  • the camera moves with the mouse
  • the character is offset to the left
  • enable or disable with “f” key, i will add a mobile button and xbox button later
  • i have already tried many fourm posts and also the official over the shoulder cam script/tutorial by roblox and that must have been outdated. it did not work but some of the code did which i used here
  • this is the script from roblox. i don’t understand most of it Scripting the Camera

THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT I MEAN BY THE CHARACTER MOVING WITH THE CAMERA this is from “islands”

Try something like this

local players = game:GetService("Players")
local runservice = game:GetService("RunService")
local CAS = game:GetService("ContextActionService")
local UIS = game:GetService("UserInputService")
local player = players.LocalPlayer
local character = player.Character or player.CharacterAdded:Wait()
local root = character:WaitForChild("HumanoidRootPart")
local humanoid = character.Humanoid
local camera = workspace.CurrentCamera

local MAX_LENGTH = 900000
local active = false
local ENABLED_OFFSET = CFrame.new(1.7, 0, 0)
local DISABLED_OFFSET = CFrame.new(-1.7, 0, 0)

local function UpdateAutoRotate(BOOL)
	humanoid.AutoRotate = BOOL
end
local function GetUpdatedCameraCFrame(ROOT, CAMERA)
	return CFrame.new(root.Position, Vector3.new(CAMERA.CFrame.LookVector.X * MAX_LENGTH, root.Position.Y, CAMERA.CFrame.LookVector.Z * MAX_LENGTH))
end
local function EnableShiftlock()
	UpdateAutoRotate(false)
	root.CFrame = GetUpdatedCameraCFrame(root, camera)
	camera.CFrame = camera.CFrame * ENABLED_OFFSET
end
local function DisableShiftlock()
	UpdateAutoRotate(true)
	camera.CFrame = camera.CFrame * DISABLED_OFFSET
	pcall(function()
		active:Disconnect()
		active = nil
	end)
end
active = false
function ShiftLock()
	if not active then
		active = runservice.RenderStepped:Connect(function()
			EnableShiftlock()
		end)
	else
		DisableShiftlock()
	end
end
local ShiftLockButton = CAS:BindAction("ShiftLOCK", ShiftLock, false, "On")
CAS:SetPosition("ShiftLOCK", UDim2.new(0.8, 0, 0.8, 0))
UIS.InputEnded:Connect(function(Key, istyping)
	if not istyping then
		if Key.KeyCode == Enum.KeyCode.F then
			if not active then
				active = runservice.RenderStepped:Connect(function()
					EnableShiftlock()
				end)
			else
				DisableShiftlock()
			end
		end
	end
end)
