Function: llSetCameraEyeOffset( vector offset );

Sets the camera eye offset for avatars that sit on the object.

• vector offset offset relative to the prim's position and expressed in local coordinates

This is the position of the camera's eye, not the point it looks at.


  • Setting this will not update the cameras of seated avatars, it will only effect avatars that subsequently sit down. The camera settings have to be prepared in advance.
  • The offset is locally relative to the object, if you want it relative to the seated avatar (which likely has a custom sit rotation and offset) or the region, you must do the computation yourself.
  • ZERO_VECTOR offset will cancel any eye offset.
  • Camera position set by this function is a Prim Property. It will survive the script and it will survive prim taking and prim rezzing
