Hi all,

This is my first project using the camera and even I watched the Andrew Devis serie as well as a couple of tutorials by Aharon I am still not sure how to proceed.

The presentation I am trying to do is inspired by this:

So as you can see it is a series of panel that camera pans and/or zoom to and finishes in a complete zoom out that shows the entire tree.

What would be the most efficient way to go about making this kind of project:

-Make all the panels and move the camera to and from nested compositions

-Make the whole tree and animate "backwards", which is to start zoomed in and reveal all parts by paning onto them and then zooming out at the end

-Other ways

Thanks for your input.

I would suggest you take a look at Sure Target 2, a free plugin from VideoCopilot:

It will take a while to wrap your head around it by watching the tutorials, but it should make your life a whole lot easier.
