Playable demo

Inspired by this GDC talk from Journey's camera engineer, this unique 3rd person camera intelligently frames the player & environment using cinematic techniques. It is AAA quality, easy to configure, and game-ready. Check the features list for more details!

Update 2.0: The SmartCamera has been completely refactored and is now a blueprint component. While there are some under-the-hood changes, usability improvements, and minor bugfixes, there are no new features. As a result, I do not recommend updating to the latest version if you're happy with what you have.
