    maybe try, put your cam in a null, use the align to spline tag on null, this will enable you to animate the cam along path and control speed, the null give you flexibility to alter the cams rotations

    Hello Jason

    here’s a summary of the steps:

    1. Create a spline path over the map and a camera.

    2. Use the Align to Spline command to attach the camera to the path.

    3. Adjust the Position value of the Spline tag to position the camera on the path.

    4. Add keyframes to the Position value where you want the camera to slow down.

    5. Adjust the Movement Speed value of the Spline tag to control the overall speed of the camera’s movement.
