Anyone know how to put an object between two objects?

Trying to place a cube halfway between a camera and the look target of the camera floating directly between them always distance based. Really struggling with this for some reason!

means you have the two positions


wouldn’t the cube position be just (the distance of cam to target)/ 2?

Three.js seemed to get upset when I tried to divide the vetcor3 by 2, I’ll try again tomorrow

if that was not possible, just take each number separately

like this:
`let distance = camPos - targetPos;

let x = distance.x/2;
let y = distance.y/2;
let z = distance.z/2;

It makes perfect sense and I did that yet the positions weren’t right, I’ll post back code and a gif tomorrow. Made sure to grab world position of the camera and camera target but I think something funky was going on under the hood with the Orbit Cam script from the Needle Samples

You could also just lerp (myVector.lerp(myTargetVector, .5))

Note that this will change the value of myVector

you can also use lerpVectors three.js docs

I’ll ping back here when I give it another shot for sure, thanks!
