Different Audios for Rear camera and Front Camera?

  • Hi Jimmi,

    your pseudocode is 100% correct. I would suggest you start tackling the issue in a more "Lens Studio way".

    Write two scripts, where one plays the front and one the back mp3.

    Then check the script events page and scroll to Camera Events.

    Add the two scripts to the corresponding parent object of your lens and let one be triggered on 'Switched To Front' and the other on 'Switched To Back' Camera.

    Good luck and feel free to ask any further questions.

    1. In Object Window: create Scene Object "AudioManager"
    2. In Resources Window: create script "PlaySeparateAudio"
    3. In Resources Window: add front.mp3 and back.mp3
    4. In Object Window: select `AudioManager`
    5. In Inspector: add two audio components to `AudioManager`
    6. In Inspector: add Script Component. Select `PlaySeparateAudio.js` 
    7. In Inspector: select each Audio Component for `AudioFront` and `AudioBack` values


    // Play Audio
    // @input Component.AudioComponent audioFront
    // @input Component.AudioComponent audioBack

    var event = script.createEvent("CameraFrontEvent");

    event.bind(function (eventData)
    print("front camera active"); 1 );
    script.audioBack.stop( true ); // fade

    var event2 = script.createEvent("CameraBackEvent");

    event2.bind(function (eventData)
    print("back camera active"); 1 );
    script.audioFront.stop( true ); // fade
