    i try to make a cutscene with a car.
    i have a map 2500x480 the car is on the left side of the map on a road.
    the camera must centered the car object when he's driving left to right and stop

    i try with the command "scrool center object and move object but nothings happen the camera is not going to the object and the car is not moving.
    ntice that i have no walkable areas and no caracters, it's just for cinematics

    if this wouldn't work,

    you could alternatively let the car on the same place and move only with the background and foreground graphics.

    Or i saw followCharacter option for Shader toolikt, but don't know how it works

    Quick note: The move object action part (in current public build, there's 2 action parts for moving object in the next release) is based on offset instead of coordinate based destination. Also you need to set the object interaction point for the car. The interaction point is actually what is used to position the object in move object action.

    Yes that would be the correct section.

    P.S: scroll to scene object does not make it constantly follow that object (far as I'm aware). I think it just scrolls to the object you link & then that action ends.

    There is an easier way
    Make the scene and set the car as a character. Start the scene from the location and do "Move Character to Location" where you want and once you are done then switch to the character. You can also do "Follow Character" if you like
    Do this always in a cutscene so the user will not interact for a better effect
