    Camera rotating the wrong way

    I'm trying to make a cinematic through my map to showcase my level designing. At certain points in the cinematic, the camera will rotate the longer way around than the short way, in other words, the camera rotates over 200 degrees, instead of less than 50. This is incredibly frustrating as it...

    I've made this trigger with Event: Map Initialization and when I test my map, everything is black, nothing is seen. I tried with locking camera target first too, but it doesn't work either. I have no idea why it occurs. I was doing this simple trigger sometimes and I never had any problem.

    Portrait Function Suggestion

    If you're like me, setting up portraits can get really annoying. Especially when you have to make multiple tweaks, re-imports to maps, and needing to wait until you see the actual portrait in-game to see if you actually set it up right. So I'm suggesting this feature hoping any tool dev would see

    Camera Angle

    Is it possible to change the defeault camera angle/rotate it for the whole game? So when the game starts it's not the normal camera rotation, but basically a 90° rotated view, which lets you see the map from another direction than the defeault one. Thanks in advance!

    Good morning, I have been looking around for a trigger or maybe someone knows a simpler way of making it so when u press spacebar the camera centers on your hero 1 similarly to what F1 does.
