Hi Everyone
Could anyone recommend a tutorial for me that would help me animate a camera following a snowflake as it falls? The snowflake being tossed about by wind and the camera tracking it are the two things I'd like to figure out how to do. Similar to the Forest Gump feather.
I've been searching online for a good one for quite a while now. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!
Joel

On something like this, I'd probably draw a bezier spline and use the align to spline tag. Maybe use a rail spline and adjust further play with the rotational properties. Then I'd simply target the camera to the snowflake and follow accordingly. But there's a million ways to work this :)

Thanks for the advice! If it ends up looking too keyframey, do you have a recommendation for a effector that would let the snowflake react naturally to wind and tumbling dynamics?
Thanks again!
Joel

... I know cinema 14 has a good aerodynamics plugin, but I have r 13 and am trying to think of a good way to simulate the snowflake tumbling naturally.
