# CalcView angle question

Hi,
Basically I want the view of the player always in front of him but I don’t really know how to do that (I’ve some issues with the angles)
I’ve done that so far :

``````
local function CamFront( ply, pos, angles, fov )
local view = {}
local CamPos=  angles:Forward()*100

view.origin = pos+ ( Vector(-CamPos.x,CamPos.y,-3) )
view.angles = -Angle(0,angles.y,0)

view.fov = fov
view.drawviewer = true

return view
end

``````

but this gave me this result:

Do you have any idea of how doing it ?

Whooops

You should use the angle of the vector ‘CamPos’:

Vector:Angle

Something like:

``````

view.angles = CamPos:Angle()

``````

But i don’t understand what you want exactly.
When you say “view of players always in front of him”, it is in front of his head (so using the up/down axis) or in front of his ‘torso’ ?

I tried but it does the exact same thing :s

More like he holds a selfi stick

Then simply place the camera in front of the player face

``````

local camPos =  angles:Forward() * 100 // Get the vector 100 unit away of the player face
view.origin = pos + camPos // Add it to the player shoot pos

``````

And revert the angle, because the phone look at the invert of the player

``````

view.angles = -angles // Invert the angle, like he have eyes behind his head

``````

ps: not tested, but it should give you enough to fix it
