Animating A Camera Through 3D space
on Oct 22, 2009 at 4:41:27 pm

I am creating a commercial that I want the camera to follow 1 main slowflake as it flys around through a snowy world. Kind of like the feather in forrest gump, just with snow. The camera will make a few stops along the way to display the graphics and text for the ad, then continue on. I am trying to find out if there is an easy way to control the camera. Can I create a motion path through my scene and have the camera follow that? What is the best way to achive this?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Ryan

Create null object turn on 3D for that layer.
Create camera.
Parent camera to null.
Apply "seperate x,y,x animation controller" to null.

Animate via this controller. Only way to get seperate keyframes/controls over the x,y,z positions.

Good luck.
