How can auto rotate camera around the object?

Hello,
I want to auto rotation camera around an object without OrbitControls or any …
I have object position and distance
Does anyone know?

controls.autoRotate = true

I don’t want to use the OrbitControls

Try it with Math.cos() and Math.sin(): Edit fiddle - JSFiddle - Code Playground

didn’t catch the “without”, no harm done :smile:

ps. there’s an easier way using pivots. put the camera into a 0/0/0 group, position the camera outwards say 0/0/10, now just increase group.rotation.y and you have it.

I also recommend what @drcmda suggests. This is basically a “spring arm” technique. You’ll find the same principle applied in most game engines, especially for 3rd person cameras.
