How does one stop the HUB being "Smoothed", as it causes screen edge elements to drift off screen!!

When having the HUD as a child of the main player, when smoothing is enabled the hud elements appear to drift around the screen.

You might want to make your HUD a child of a CanvasLayer node so it’s not affected by your camera

I grouped my HUD elements as children of a canvas layer node, which itself is a child of my main player and it works! Cheers
