Dual Lens with game

  • Hi Muneeb, 

    Unfortunately, we do not have a Shooter Game Template at this time. You can however take a look at the Interactive Guides here and under the “Interactive” menu on the left, learn how to use our available Interactive triggers to create games. 

    There is a way to assign different content to your front and back cameras though: 

    First, add a new empty object to your scene. Next, add the below script to it. Then, in the inspector panel, you can add objects to this script. 

    It will manage all objects that you want enabled on the front camera only and the back camera only. Note, make sure to not add this script to the objects you'll be disabling (because disabling the object will ultimately disable the script logic). 


    Here's the script, called "ShowOnlyOnCamera":

    // @input SceneObject[] showOnlyOnFront

    // @input SceneObject[] showOnlyOnBack


    // -----JS CODE-----

    function onFrontCamEvent(eventData)


    for( var i = 0; i < script.showOnlyOnFront.length; i++ ){

    script.showOnlyOnFront[i].enabled = true; 



    for( var i = 0; i < script.showOnlyOnBack.length; i++ ){

    script.showOnlyOnBack[i].enabled = false; 



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



    function onBackCamEvent(eventData)


    for( var i = 0; i < script.showOnlyOnFront.length; i++ ){

    script.showOnlyOnFront[i].enabled = false; 



    for( var i = 0; i < script.showOnlyOnBack.length; i++ ){

    script.showOnlyOnBack[i].enabled = true; 



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



    Please let us know if you have any further questions.
