Tried searching here and google, and couldn't quite find the tutorial I'm looking for.

Here's what I'm trying to do.
Take a flat map (psd document) and have the perspective/camera angle change so the camera starts out wide and far, and the it starts coming at it from an angle similar to the way a plane is coming in for a landing, at the same time that it's zooming in closer to the destination.

I know I've seen similar kind of map movement on weather channels (this isn't for weather, it's for geography for an educational video for kids).

I've got the camera doing *sort of* what I want it to do, but having trouble controlling all the x y z orientations the way I want. And I thought there might be a tutorial that could help me out.

Any ideas?

Thanks very much,

Dan S.

Andrew Devis has a comprehensive 3 part tutorial on Camera Rigs in After Effects, that's a good place to start:

You might also want to look into the videocopilot.net plugin "sure target 2" it's free and if you aren't using it for at least some of your camera animations... you should be.
