Watermarking Active Camera
by Aaron Martinez on May 6, 2015 at 2:19:20 pm
I am using C4D as a pre vis tool to create storyboards for a film.
Using the STAGE object, I am cutting between several cameras.
I would love to display specific camera information.
- Camera Name
- Focal Length
- Focal Distance
Using the WATERMARK render effect I can easily display the Camera Name.
I am curious to know if there is a way, presumably using XPRESSO, to access and display the specific Camera info without having to keyframe it manually when the camera cuts...
That is to say I am looking for tips on developing an expression that would automatically display the desired info like a watermark. I am confident I can figure out the channeling an output into an onscreen watermark like text.
But i do not know how to access the desired active camera information...
any tips would be appreciated... I want to say Lists may be helpful, but i never really understood them...
