Is there a way to hide objects only on certian cameras? I'm making a FPS, and I want a weapon model to show up in one camera, and a character model to show up in other cameras and mirrors. Is there a way to do this?

as far as i'm aware this is impossible, unless you partially duplicate the scene so far away from camera 1 that camera 1 or 2 cant see the other scene...

Good information on setting a camera to an image. I don't know exactly what you're asking.

I don't think this is possible, but certain things (such as BSP maps) can only be visible from one camera at a time (at least last time I looked at those commands). Most objects are visible from all cameras.

Just wondering, why do you want different cameras to see only certain objects. Maybe there is another way around.

I'm guessing its a split screen game where the left camera only needs to see player 2 and the right camera only needs to see player 1...

Part of the game is split screen. I could duplicate the scene for that part. What I wanted to do was be able to see your whole character in a mirror or other cameras, say a surveillance camera, but not in the main camera, so if you look down, you can't see your feet.

I have a solution.



Adjust the second camera's range so that it is just beyond the radius of the player object. That code should run by itself

edit : disappears between the range of 105 and 115 in that example :p

Hiding objects from individual cameras has been requested in the past, so I think TGC might be looking into, or they have already, or forgotten. Anyway, this has been discussed and there are a lot of uses for it.

This might be a little complicated and perhaps slow, but you might be able to:
- have sync on
* DO
- show player object
- capture camera image from mirror camera (cameraMirrorImage)
- hide player object
- texture mirror with cameraMirrorImage
- sync
* LOOP

Hope this works
