EarthManipulator and tether node

Hi,

I am trying to set a viewpoint with a node on a EarthManipulator.
This should enable tether mode, etc... but it doesn't work.

Before investigating why, I'd like to check that what I want to achieve is doable.
Is it possible to use an EarthManipulator to constantly look at a node (from a set distance) and benefit from collision detection with the map (to avoid having the camera go below earth surface).

I am trying to replace a NodeTrackerManipulator that gives too much freedom to the camera.

Cheers,
Philippe.

Re: EarthManipulator and tether node

I do not believe anyone has ever tested tethering with collision. My guess is that they probably don't work together.
