Hello. I'm Nameless L.W. ( pronounced Lou for convenience, lol )
WingedHares is my studio name.
I'm quite new to RPG Maker. Currently using the latest build, RMMZ. Loving it so far :)

I'm wondering if there's a way to zoom camera in and out? Since the default one is too far away from the player character. I also would like to incorporate it in cutscenes.

It would be nice if the camera can follow the player character as well.

Thank you in advance.
Cheers!

UPDATE! I tried Galv's MZ Cam Control out, but it doesn't seem to be what I'm looking for :'D

I should've worded it better, but what I meant was something more of a cut in effect with the zoom already done before the screen fade in.
Something like: fade out > zoom in and focus to character/event/etc > fade in screen. This should give a cut in effect, but...

I tried that out with this plugin but the zoom is always done after the fade in screen, regardless of how it's programmed in the event.

Searched the plugin master list too and doesn't seem to have what I need.

If you know of something like this, please do tell. Thank you :)
I'll keep searching too.

If not, that's fine too.
I don't particularly need it right away. Still ptototyping stuff with placeholders, lol.

Galv has a cam control plugin that's been updated for MZ.


It can also lock the camera onto things other than the player, which is good for cutscenes.

I'll add that it's a fantastic plugin, perhaps my favorite. Good luck.

Ah, thanks! I'm new here, so, lol.
I'll be more thoughtful next time :D

Dumb question: have you tried doing fade in/ fade out as dedicated commands instead of using the default map transfer fade?

I'm not using the map transfer fade for this, no, lol.

Code:
>Plugin Command : GALV_Cam_ControlMZ, Zoom
:               : Zoom Scale = 2
:               : Zoom Duration = 0

Set the event to parallel process.

Setting the event up like this, specifically the zoom duration to zero should set the zoom up before the map is loaded.

Been focusing on art, but- I think it's going go work! Haven't tried to make it achieve a cut-in effect yet, but the zooming does work as intended. Thank you so much :D

Hopefully it works for the rest too, lol.
And btw, this plugin is okay to use for commercial games, right? I didn't find a statement anywhere, but just in case. I will credit them, of course :)

The link that Restart post is Glav's official page. Galv has a 'Terms of Use' section that specifies what sort of projects you may use their plugins in. I suggest you read up on that before using Galv's plugins.

Well, rats. Was really looking forward to trying out FPS Creator, but trying to install and set it up was pretty much impossible for my tiny brain to comprehend. So much for that, then.
Ah, home once more! I think I can safely work on my games now.
Let's hope power remains on for the day
