turning off / changing target on a target camera
on Sep 28, 2010 at 1:10:14 pm

hi all,

I have a target camera moving along a spline path pointing at an object, and I'd like the target camera to follow the object up till a point. Is there anyway you can automate the target of the target camera with having to cut to another camera.

The effect I want is for the camera to swoop around an object, keeping it's focus on it, then move away to focus on another all in one fluid motion. Is there a way to keep using target cameras in order to avoid key framing the view of the camera?

Please excuse my newbie questions............

other than putting the target null inside of another null, you could look at CSTools Easy Cam (free - http://circlesofdelusion.blogspot.com/) of SteadyCamPro (not free - no v12 version yet - http://homepage.mac.com/tcastudios/steadycampro.html)

I used the easycam for the first animation, cutting between them using stage, but the results are very start / stop. I need something to produce fluid results. I have to fluidly travel around 7 targets in a complex terrain......

Steadycam looks good but I've got R11.5 on a 64bit system, and it says 10 - 11. Do you know if it works for 11.5 / 64 bit?

Also, it says it's got 4 target placements, but once you have moved past the first three say, can you keyframe to replace them?

Many thanks,
Jack
