keep the text static
on Sep 8, 2009 at 8:20:41 am

Hi everybody, I wrote few days ago a post in basic forum and no one succeed to help, so I uploaded to youtube 5 sec clip, so you guys will be able to understand it, and hopefully to help out.

so... this is one I want to do (from 39sec):

but... this is what I get:

I have no idea what im doing wrong. tried to start the tutorial all over again and I get the same result - the text is moving (as you can see) together with the camera, and it is should stay static on the floor.

this is the tutorial:

cant get beyond step 30 (130 cus its part2 of the tutorial).

please guys, if you understand the problem please help out.

good day

Detect the problem:
1. Change the camera angle in the preview box to top(there is a button somewhere in the bottom of the preview window). If you change the angle you're able to see the "real" camera moving around.
2. Zoom out or in if nessesary
3. Play the preview
4. You should be able to tell how to camera moves and (maybe) detect the problem

In a camera there is 2 very important properties:
Focus point
(i'm not sure about the names)

Possible problem/solution:
It looks like the camera's position is moving while the focus point don't move at all, this should be opposite.
