    volCAMERA: a powerful camera engine for Clickteam Fusion 2.5

    Hi everyone,

    I'd like to announce volCAMERA, which is a powerful and highly customisable camera solution for Fusion 2.5 that I've been working on for a while now, and have just completed. Features include:

    -Smooth linear interpolation (LERP) with customisable speeds
    -Tweak camera settings on the fly with the fully-featured HUD
    -The same camera engine that is used in Spryke
    -Well commented code
    -Highly modular (easy to use any combination of features you want)
    -Up to 4 directions of overshoot (a.k.a. camera lookahead)
    -Jump locking
    -Wall-jump locking
    -Camera shake
    -Platform snapping
    -Adjustable boundaries
    -Snap or LERP to boundaries
    -Camera can snap to boundaries or cushion against them with LERP
    -Press a button to save current camera settings to TXT file that explains how to implement them in your game.
    -Designed to be as easy as possible to plug into your own game (intermediate knowledge of Fusion is still recommended)
    -Supports side-view games by default, but could easily be adapted to a top-view game.

    Here's a video showing it in action, and explaining all of its features and settings:




    volCAMERA is available at the Clickstore for $2.99

    Also, for a really great article about videogame cameras, with tons of animated visual examples, make sure you check out this Gamasutra article.

    I hope it's useful to you!

    Oh wow, that looks awesome! I think I'll be picking that up for my sci fi scrolling game soon, it needed some better camera movement badly!

    Thanks for the heads up, Marv. Linked fixed.

    @MEHRDAD: Yes, it's basically cross-platform. The only non-cross-platform object it uses is the File Object, and that's only used for the demo/console portion (to save your preferred settings into a TXT file). The File Object isn't used at all by the actual camera engine.

    OK. Thanks. I'll buy it this week.

    p.s : Sorry for another question . Is it possible add zoom effect too ? ( cross platform)

    Very interesting idea. I hadn't actually thought of zoom, and it's something I'll definitely look into. Though I expect it would end up being a complex task, so it probably won't happen soon.
