    Hi,

    Everything else held constant, when I change the Brain's Update Method to Fixed Update, in one project the camera always snaps to the target it's following instead of easing into the position as it does when the method is Smart or Late. Any idea why this might be? If it helps, the Cinemachine still respects the Confine2D property it has.

    Thanks!

    This is a bug in CM, fixed in CM 2.2.8 (available now in preview).
    Why can't you just leave the Brain's update on Smart?

    Hi, I have the same issue and tried updating to 2.2.8 from preview packages but that version is not listed even if I display preview packages from the advanced menu of package manager.
    I tried to set version to 2.2.8 from the manifest file but package is not found either.
    How can I configure package manager to find 2.2.8 preview ?

    With a text editor edit your project's Packages/manifest.json file and add this line:
    "registry": "https://staging-packages.unity.com",
    immediately before the "dependencies" line. Then open Package Manager, and you will see the experimental and unpublished content in addition to full-fledged releases. Use at your own risk.

    Ok, thanks, trying right now.
    Seeing dependencies are set out of registry setup, I bet the change is global.
    Isn't there a way to say dependency X must be grabbed from registry Y ?

    Yes, it's global, but the staging registry includes all the stuff in the normal registry, so you won't lose anything

    Ok, I tried and things seems to be working as expected now. Thanks again !

    Using 2.2.7 was not properly tweening and using 2.2.0 was spitting a lot of exceptions because of another issue that has been fixed in 2.2.7 so I was looking forward to get an update.
    Our game is not not be released before several months so that's fine to wait on a preview version for now.
