Watermarking Active Camera
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
- F-Stop

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...

I found a solution...

in Render Settings / Watermark / Text field there is a triangle button.

Click that and a menu of variables pops up.

You can set among other things C4D version info, System, Project, Render and CAMERA SETTINGS.

Works great!
