Locking camera to objects motion.

Hey there,
I've looked all through the forms and CC had never let me down over the years, but I cant find a solution to my problem.

I'm looking for a way to lock the camera to an object, so as it rotates the camera rotates with it. A good example (if you're in the UK) It's Channel 4's current ident. A box is locked to the camera, so as it rotates it looks as though the contents are moving in it's own way.

Other examples I can think of would be the rising hall fight scene in inception.

Many thanks

Joe

If I understand your question:

Make the camera a child of the box and it will rotate with it. If you want additional animation for the camera (moving up and down, for example) add a Target tag to the camera with the box as the target and it will always point at the center of the box.
