Sample text

Let’s add a line to control that. render(scene, camera); } animate(); ❶ This is where we say if our avatar is doing cartwheels or not. If we set this to true, then our avatar is doing cartwheels. If we set it to false (like we’ve done here), then our avatar won’t do cartwheels. rotation in an if, as shown. rotation line. Change the value of is_cartwheeling from false to true. Does the avatar start cartwheeling again? report erratum • discuss Chapter 3. Project: Making an Avatar • 34 Make Our Avatar Flip!

We convert those arrow keys and numbers into avatar movement like this: Arrow Key Computer Number Avatar Direction Left 37 Left Up 38 Forward Right 39 Right Down 40 Back report erratum • discuss Chapter 4. Project: Moving Avatars • 38 So let’s make this happen. addEventListener(). Replace it with the following code, starting with the var code statement. z+5; }); // // // // left up right down We saw the if statement in Project: Making an Avatar. In this case, we’re checking if the keycode is equal to one of the arrow-key computer numbers.

Add(camera) and delete it. add(camera); ❶ Add this line. After hiding the code, you’ll see that when the avatar is moved, the camera stays right in front of the avatar. z = 500). The camera is always at the same height as the avatar since we never defined the camera’s report erratum • discuss Chapter 4. y. x. It might help to think of the camera being attached to the avatar with an invisible chain. Wherever the avatar goes, the camera goes as well. Pretty cool, right? Well, there is a major problem with this approach.
