Lock camera view for "locate train/car" feature (RCT Classic origin?)

Does anyone know what I'm talking about if I bring up the idea for the devs to bring the "lock camera onto train/car" like you see and can do in RCT Classic? Where, in the ride's main tab, you can choose the train you want to locate on the track, and then you can tap the locate icon either once or twice to then lock the MAIN camera view (the phone's screen camera view itself, not the small window for the ride) onto that car/train indefinitely until you tap the screen or move the view of the game somewhere else with your finger. I always thought it'd be relaxing to see (and hear) the sounds of the park bustling around you if you kept the camera focused on a swan paddle boat in a lake and just let the camera follow it around while you did something else. I wasn't sure if the devs have considered this in the past, or if anyone has brought it up.

I don't quite understand what you mean? I meant for the player to have the option in-game to lock the main camera view onto the train or car that you're watching on the ride's window, like how you can do that in RCT Classic. The "locate" icon in RCT Classic also functions as a "hold main camera view until I move view around" when you tap on it again after locating the thing on the main view. I was hoping this could be brought over to OpenRCT2 as I personally enjoy letting the game continue on without me doing anything, but I can still enjoy my park while having it move around following a monorail train or a rollercoaster train around the track. THIS is what I meant to say, but I wasn't sure if it was conveyed clearly enough. I apologize if that was the case.

You mean like this?. That is what @jensj12is referring to, but contrary to what he said, you don't technically have to make a title sequence to use it. It's possible to lock the camera in game by opening the title sequence editor via the options menu - although this usage was almost certainly not intended and is a bit awkward, it does work and that is what I used for the linked video.

YES! Exactly like that! I was curious how to do that! You say it's by using the title sequence, though that's not necessarily how it's meant to be used? Maybe if there was an easier option for that in-game, like how I mentioned the "locate train/car" can then be clicked on again to lock the camera until you move it around again.
