But I noticed everything works perfectly until I add a gun and cross hair as child nodes of the player, but I'll have to add Gun and Cross hair to the game since it is a 3rd Person Shooter so I don't know if there's another way of attaching the gun and cross hair to the player without making them child nodes.
Pls note also that the gun is added as an animated joint to the players hand.

I followed your tutorial again and it is working great now, but only with Mixamo models so far. I uploaded my own FBX model and that didnt work very well. The motions get all screwed up somehow afterwards. Anyway, mixamo got some nice models i can work with so im good for now.

Is there any way to make better jumping? It just pops up and down. It needs some gravity, go a bit higher and forward a bit. It's just unrealistic.

How do I change the WASD to arrows? I need to use my right hand.

hi sometimes this extensions crashes my game at start i also had move the camera around scenegraph to make it work sometimes

Unfortunatly I have experienced the same issue (also using Linux/Wine as you may know...), especially with latest v1.8.1. and its many built-in extra features. Using an older more slim core version fixes the issue for me at the moment. Can't say if it's a specific Linux/Wine problem though.

Hi Sam! I am having 2 problems with your wonderful camera script.

Problem 1- it is blocking me from pressing regular letter keys on the pc keyboard. I mean it is blocking my main.js script from accessing the keyboard. I tested the same main.js script and it works fine. So I combed through all I had and I found out it is indeed your camera script.

Problem 2- on the debugger it always says that: Property does not exist: Name.

And I did find out that you have such word Name several times in your script, like so:
behavior_smThirdpersonCameraController.prototype.onAnimate = function(node, Time){
if(!this.node){ // doing this only once
this.node = node; = ccbGetSceneNodeProperty(node, "Name");
this.lastTime = new Date().getTime();
if(!this.angleClamp) this.angleClamp = 87; // angle clamp defaults to 87, remove this line if you want your angleClamp value to be 0
this.PlayerName = ccbGetSceneNodeProperty(this.Player, "Name");

i did not want to give up on this wonderful cam.. :(

when i restart scene my game crashes randomly after some restarts with the newest version of this camera and controller im using linux with wine i tried using CC third person camera and then it does not crash.

i do not know if it happens on windows
if anyone could verify if this does not happen on windows .. it would be nice

my workaround was to eliminate the need for restarting scene

i used v1.4 that works without crashing under linux/wine :)

I downloaded and tried the demo. Walking does not work - dude just slides around. The whole thing is rather clunky - not smooth at all. Is that Coppercube as usual?

Thanks for the attempt at a decent 3rd person cam. Coppercube really cannot be used to make anything worth selling.


I beg to differ. I'm currently working on a game where my character moves quite fluidly. Once you learn what CC can and cannot do and you optimize the code to make the best of those limitations, you can get pretty nice results.

hi, when I use this and place other objects onto the object being followed by the camera, the objects jitter and are delayed when the object moves. Any fixes?
