I know how to scroll the map / camera using the "Scroll Map" function, but how would I make a scene where the camera scrolls to the Player Character rather than using them as the starting point? I suppose that's the crux of the question; How do I make a different event the "starting point" for a camera pan (rather than the player)?

What I hope to accomplish: This is an opening cutscene where the scene is black, but fades in as the camera pans slowly across the map until resting on the Player Character.

RMMV
You could
1 - turn the player invisible and place them at the edge of the map
2 - create an event with the graphics of the player character wherever they should be on the map
3 - use a move route to move the player and scroll the screen (or scroll map, whatever)

You can also find a variety of camera control plugins that can give you extra focusing and movement commands.

Sweet! Thanks for the help! I hadn't really thought about doing a "body double" type situation. Good thinking! Thanks!

So I managed to scare my chief. Between shifts I had an appointment with my psychiatrist, so prior to it I'd told him "If I ain't coming today, they've kept me there.". Then as I was asleep, my phone died. So I overslept and through the entire time I was unreachable.
I spent so much time toiling in VX Ace frankensteining scripts together only for MV to come along and just... have everything.

The overworld tool system in particular I thought was gonna take me a million years to recreate, but nope. Thanks Moghunter.
Going to go live way earlier than usual tonight, pretty much in 20 minutes, purely because I'm bored. :LZSlol:

So... I'm gonna be a parent... XD
