Set the camera's vehicle to the person.
You'll find that option in the preferences for the camera.

Cool another option... - 10-02-2009, 12:29 AM

if want to try something a bit more advanced, try:

If (camera is (say, 2 meters) away from (your character)
___camera point at (your character)
___camera move forward (say, 1 meter)
___wait (say, 0.5 seconds)
else
___do nothing

this string is in the airplane example, which you might have, if you need to see a better example. it uses an if/else statement and a proximity function, which are both cool. and you can change the amounts if it's to fast or to slow.

ok to make the chase cam. you have to RIGHT CLICK on "CAMERA" then go to "Methods" then go to "Set point of view to" then click on what you want the camera to follow. Then Right click on "CAMERA" again and go to "methods"
then go to "set vehicle to" and click on the same object as before

You could also just click the camera item in the item tree on the upper-left of the screen, then click the camera's propety tab, then click the vehicle property and set it to whatever object you need. Much easier, in my opinion.
