Hi All, i am working on a architectural walkthrough animation. The software im using require me to add people (animated) in post production (After Effect). What would be the proper way to add this animated people so it match the movement of the camera (i need to add both stand still and walking towards the camera people). Thanks.

Ideally you'll get the camera data exported from whatever 3d software you used to make the building.

If not, you'll have to try motion tracking. AE doesn't come with 3d motion tracking though, so you may need to look at third-party programs. (I believe the Foundry has a 3d tracker for AE)

...not to to mention the inevitable perspective changes on the people that should also occur to make it look proper.
