The camera lookat vector is the vector that specifies the point in the world where you want to aim the camera.

Here's the code for the second one:

D3DCamera.h:

#ifndef D3DCAMERA_H
#define D3DCAMERA_H

// CD3DCamera class
class CD3DCamera {
public:
CD3DCamera(); // Constructor

void resetCamera(); // Reset the camera
void rotateCamera(); // Rotate the camera
void walk(float fUnits); // Camera fo walking
void strafe(float fUnits); // Camera for strafing
void fly(float fUnits); // Camera for flying
void yaw(float fAngle); // Camera for yawing
void roll(float fAngle); // Camera for rolling
void pitch(float fAngle); // Camera for pitching
void zoom(float fUnits); // For zooming and out
D3DXMATRIX *getViewMatrix(D3DXMATRIX *pmatView); // Get view transformation matrix

// ECameraType enumeration
enum ECameraType {
Land, // Camera is on the land
Air, // Camera is on the air
};

private:
POINT m_point; // Screen coordinates

D3DXMATRIXA16 m_matView; // View transformation matrix

float m_fX, m_fY, m_fZ; // View positions

D3DXVECTOR3 m_vecPosition, m_vecUp, m_vecRight, m_vecLookAt; // 3D vectors

BOOL m_bCameraPosChanged; // This will notify us if the camera's position has changed since last update

ECameraType m_cameraType; // This will hold camera type
};

extern CD3DCamera *g_pD3DCamera; // Externed class pointer

#endif // D3DCAMERA_H

I would recommend this book: "Introduction to 3D game programming with DirectX 9.0c a shader approach" by Frank Luna. That's the best book out there!! Here you can download that's book's source code: http://www.wordware.com/files/dx9c/ Good luck

Define "look around and move". What should each key do? You can't get full lookat and movement with just 4 keys (in a easy way). What do you have at the moment? In what way does it not work?
