### Smooth Camera placement between 2 positions.

20 August 2010 - 09:02 AM

Hi, quick question!
I want have a camera, that no matter what, keeps 2 postions in the view.
In 2d, im pretty sure this is how you do it:
Have a view, that follows obj_camera.
```var dist,dir;
dist=point_distance(obj_player.x,obj_player.y,mouse_x,mouse_y)*0.45
dir=point_direction(obj_player.x,obj_player.y,mouse_x,mouse_y)
x=obj_player.x+lengthdir_x(dist,dir)
y=obj_player.y+lengthdir_y(dist,dir)
```
THE PROBLEM: How would i go about implementing this in 3d.

Hello GMC!
I was wondering how would i go about achieving gravity to a center of a sphere?
Super Mario Galaxy has this very same gravity.

### Texture Painting/Splatting

18 July 2010 - 12:02 PM

I have looked for methods, but havnt found any i know how to use. I am hoping someone can tell me a method to do this, and then help me understand how they did it.

Things i have found and dont understand:
-Master Xilos Terrain Editor (This is what i want to acheive, texture painting wise)

Things i've found and will use if i cant figure out how to texture paint:
- Have chunks of terrain with big textures
- Uv map model with one texture that has every tex i want (so a 10000x10000 with road, grass, dirt etc.)

Please if you have a method, link, example or anything else, please give it to me so i can learn this.
I really want to learn this.
