The custom cam is good but im not happy with the way it directly snaps to the new view, the smart cam had smoothing which i did like

I might add some damping to the custom cam and see how that looks

I have problems with 0.3x but i'll give it a try

Sorry guys... I read the question again and sue rolls 1st, originally I read it as bob rolls 1st some how ?
I have z-man to thank for forcing my eyes to open

so the answer is (5/6) * (5/6) * (5/6) * (1/6) = 125/1296

ie 9.645061728% or there abouts

bob and sue are implied in the question but heres a little more detail bob takes his first throw and has a 5 in 6 chance of not hitting a 6 sue takes her first throw and has a 5 in 6 chance of not hitting a 6 bob takes his second throw and has a 1 in 6 chance of hitting a 6 so the odds that bob will...

Yeah I think im starting to realise whats going on, bike moves under the camera which keeps its focas on the bike so it has to look down to keep the bike in view

I will have to make the camera rotate around the bike but first I will try what you suggested with the min distance etc

Thanks

You can't stop it, that's what it does. But by increasing camera_smart_min_distance or camera_smart_height, you can avoid losing too much overview when it does it. But note that those settings are undocumented for a reason: the smart camera is a fragile beast and fiddling with them easily breaks st...
