3D Circle Rotation
on Jan 26, 2010 at 7:49:51 am

Hi! I'm having troubles with one composition.

I want to create a circle rotation: 4 Obejcts should rotate circular around a object placed in the center of the composition. Now what I did is: first i placed my objects and then added them to a null object which I rotated in Z axis from 0° to 360 °. Then I rotated all my 4 Objects from 0° to -360 ° so that their position stays correct while beeing rotated by the null object. I want the animation to get depth, so i rotated the Null Object in the X Axis to 60°.

So far so good, but I don't know how to give more perspective. I want the objects that are behind the center object to look much smaller than the ones in front.... and when passing the center object to get covered by it.

Is there a plugin for this purpose or do I have to scale manually ?

Any Help is verry much appreciated.

Change the angle of view on your AE camera. A wider angle lens means more perspective.
