I am having too much trouble figuring out how to target the camera to an object. The LW8 help manual is not helpful. Someone tell me what I'm overlooking please.

It's easier than you think -
select the camera.
Press m for Motion Options.

There at the top of the panel, is the Parent and Target options.
Set the target, and you're good to go.

Note that targeting and parenting all work from an
item's pivot positions - so your target may seem off if the
pivot is say, at the foot of a character.
You can adjust the pivot, or, parent a null to the character, then
target to that. This method also gives you keyframeable targets.

select your camera, then go into the motion options button.
