Description

Description:
Lock/Unlock stabilized camera to target. Works only on turrets which have optic mode selected with direction stabilization enabled.
Since Arma 3 logo black.png2.08 the command also works with non-stabilized turrets (such as main turret of a tank). See syntax 2.
The command is local to the turret gunner, not the vehicle.
Groups:
Camera Control

Syntax

Syntax:
vehicle lockCameraTo [target, turretPath]
Parameters:
vehicle: Object - UAV
target: Object or Array format PositionASL - use objNull to unlock
turretPath: Array - path to the turret with required camera
Return Value:
Nothing
  • This syntax only works with stabilized turrets.
  • When using this syntax, if target is out of possible view, the turret will move to its limit and get stuck there, with blocked input.

Alternative Syntax

Syntax:
vehicle lockCameraTo [target, turretPath, temporary]
Parameters:
vehicle: Object - UAV
target: Object or Array format PositionASL - use objNull to unlock
turretPath: Array - path to the turret with required camera
temporary: Boolean - if set to true, the engine will automatically remove the lock-on once the turret reaches its target. If the target is out of turret's reach, the turret will move to the maximum of its capacity towards the target.
Return Value:
Nothing
This syntax also works with non-stabilised turrets, unlike Syntax 1.

uav lockCameraTo [vehicle, [0,0]];

The vehicle has to have a stabilized optic for this command to work with ASL position.
