I am using Smartbody and I need control the camera using the python api. I am using the commands setEye, setCenter, setPosition, etc; but I'm finding some problems. I think those problems come from bad usage, I think I am not introducing the propper numerical values. Which are the differences between center, eye and position?

Thanks in advance

The 'eye' is the location of the camera (similar to posiiton). The center is the target at which the camera is pointed. I do remember some bug in the code that was fixed a few months ago where setting the position directly didn't change the camera position; what version of SmartBody are you using?
