Zoom out to another BG
Zoom out to another BG

Hello everyone ☺

very urgent!

I work on after effect and want to create the next thing:

Zoom in to the face of one character and then, when i zoom out the character will be in another environment and in another position on the comp (another background).

For example: Super mario is outside some house>zoom in into his face > zoom out > Super mario is in the 2nd floor looking out the window.

What is the simplest way to do that?

I assume i need to use the camera and zoom in to the character`s face, but what after that?

thanks in advance!

You’re going to need to hide a transition (fade) from one shot to another during the camera move. A simple morph can help with this.
