Setting the position of an ofEasyCam instance in ofSetup() does not work. What does work in testApp::setup() is calling ofEasyCam::setDistance(). When calling ofEasyCam::setPosition() in for example testApp::draw() does work.
this is still a bug but should be handled by documentation of ofEasyCam.
pinging @openframeworks/documentation, then.
added note to fix #618
@arturoc thinks we should rather fix this bug instead of adding documentation.
Is this really a bug? You can call setPosition() in setup() as long as you first setAutoDistance(false). This makes sense to me. You can call setPosition() in draw() or wherever you like.
perhaps it should show an error then and say that auto distance is enabled so you can't use setPosition
