Orbit/Pan/Zoom target problem.

original: http://www.unifycommunity.com/wiki/index.php?title=MouseOrbitZoom

I found this script on the wiki, but I am having some trouble when applying it to the MainCamera. When I straight applied it to the camera and assigned the camera as the target it didn't do anything. I tried removing the parts that required keystrokes so I could just click and move the camera.

I haven't gotten any errors. But the script doesn't do anything when applyied to the camera.

Can you let me know how I am using it wrong? My thought is that applying the camera as a target isn't how this is supposed to function but I don't get what I have to do with it.

        // calculate position based on the new currentDistance

        if (angle < -360)
            angle += 360;

The Target should be your Player or whatever Transform you want the camera to follow - not the Camera itself.

Is there a way to have the camera targeting specific objects that the user has to click on?
(Therefore changing the target and refocusing on it)
