Chapter 3

Added the third chapter with 12 lessons dedicated to the camera rig.

You will learn to code a rig that:

  • Collides with the environment and slides at an offset from the ground.
  • Smoothly moves the camera, using Godot's InterpolatedCamera.
  • Auto-rotates to keep the player centered in the view.
  • Can get in and out of an aiming mode.
  • Projects an aim target on the environment in aiming mode.

This gives you a camera that generally feels good.

  • Added one quizz
  • Added one assignment and its solution in video
  • Added a short video lesson to correct a bug with the camera being offset when coming out of the Aim state
