After hiding the code, you’ll see that when the avatar is moved, the camera stays right in front of the avatar. z = 500). The camera is always at the same height as the avatar since we never defined the camera’s report erratum • discuss Chapter 4. y. x. It might help to think of the camera being attached to the avatar with an invisible chain. Wherever the avatar goes, the camera goes as well. Pretty cool, right? Well, there is a major problem with this approach. What happens if the avatar starts cartwheeling or flipping (remember that we’re using the C and F keys for this)?

We’ll also give it a little forest to move around in. 1 Getting Started This chapter builds on the work that we did in Project: Making an Avatar. If you haven’t already done the exercises in that chapter, go back and do them before proceeding. In particular, you need to go over the animate() exercise at the end of that chapter. Let’s make a copy of the previous chapter’s avatar project. That way, if we ever want to go back to see our simple spinning and cartwheeling avatar, we can. To make a copy of that project, click the menu button and choose Make a Copy from the menu.

X = 150. As we’ll see shortly, it can be very convenient to set multiple values on a single line. report erratum • discuss Adding Feet for Walking • 29 But why 150? The answer is that the radius of the body is 100 and the radius of the hand is 50. We need to move the hand 100 + 50, or 150 in the X (left/right) direction: If we only moved the center of the hand 100, then we would end up with the hand partly inside the body: Try This Yourself If you’re not convinced, try it yourself. set(150, 0, 0).
