view problem

I have imported an avatar and applied a keyboard key to animate it. my problem is that I want to make my view as first person point of view. I've also been able to connect my view to the avatar but the problem is I can see the avatar's head, I want my camera to be beside him moving with him.
Please help.

This is my code:

import viz



character = viz.add('vcc_male.cfg') # Add a CAL3D based avatar
character.state(1) # Activate the walking state

def characterWalk (key):
if key == viz.KEY_KP_RIGHT:
walk = vizact.walkTo([5,0,0],1)

viz.callback(viz.KEYBOARD_EVENT, characterWalk)

viewLink = character, viz.MainView, enabled = True )

I have fixed this problem but now I have another problem. I want to press a certain key and be able to look left and right without moving. I was able to do it with view but now that my view is linked to the character I can't move it. Please help me!!

You can set the mask of the link so it only affects the position of the destination object, then you'll still be able to change the viewpoint orientation
viewLink =,viz.MainView,mask=viz.LINK_POS)
In the future please use the code tags when you post code to preserve the indentation
