GetCameraMatrix

From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

This function gets the position of the camera and the position of the point it is facing.

Note: The server-side version of this function returns the last camera matrix that was set by the server, and thus does not necessarily indicate the current matrix of the camera (since it may have been changed client-side).
