Camera Switcher in Unity - using Animation

Hopefully this might be useful to some others.... I'm still getting to grips with Unity.

This is a simple approach to cut between multiple cameras in Unity using the animation timeline - to help create cinematics / machinima.

1) Create an Empty Gameobject - I named it CamSwitcher

2) Make a new Javascript - I called mine  'CamSwitch' - and place the javascript below into it :

var cam1 : Camera; 
var cam2 : Camera; 
var cam3 : Camera; 

function SwitchCam1() 
{ cam1.enabled = true; cam2.enabled = false; cam3.enabled = false; } 

function SwitchCam2() 
{ cam1.enabled = false; cam2.enabled = true; cam3.enabled = false; } 

function SwitchCam3() 
{ cam1.enabled = false; cam2.enabled = false; cam3.enabled = true; }

follow the logic of the script if you want to add more cameras - for example

var cam4 : Camera;
function SwitchCam4()
{ cam1.enabled = false; cam2.enabled = false; cam3.enabled = false; cam4.enabled = true; }

3) Place the script into the CamSwitcher Object

4) Connect up your Multiple…
