Camera Orbit Animation

Camera Orbit Animation is a component to have a project start with a camera orbiting a center point and displaying a UI container. The player is locked from movement during the animation. They can press a binded action to exit the animation and return to the default camera.

It uses a blackout fade in and out effect to transition smoothly, which is needed because the camera switching can be delayed on the client. This animation is similar to the Core World start screen.
