basically, i have 2 points (a and b).

example set up:

what im trying to do is, find a point on the line (any point between a and b). so far all ive managed to do is calculate the length of the line.Code:a \ \ \ \ b

lets say the length is 5, how can i move 1 point from a towards b (on the line)?

i would google this but i have no idea what its called, ive never done this before. the reason i need to do it is because i have the player location (a) then i have the target location (b) and i need to move the camera from a to b at small intervals to give the 'fly over' look.
