Camera zooming - automatic loop
on Dec 10, 2016 at 2:29:08 pm

Hi,

is there a way to create this automatic loop?
I will set the positions manually, then need it to repeat itself. Times of the compositions will vary so sometimes it won't repeat itself. Sometimes it ends during the first loop.

Camera at starting position (x,y,z) ->
Zoom to one position (x,y,z) on the left in x sec->
Goes back to starting position in x sec ->
Zoom to one position (x,y,z) on the right in x sec ->
Goes back to starting position in x sec ->
Zoom to one position (x,y,z) on the top in x sec ->
Goes back to starting position in x sec ->
Zoom to one position (x,y,z) on the bottom in x sec ->
REPEAT

Thanks!

I'm confused by your terminology. Zoom doesn't involve position, just distance, yes? Also, what is "x sec" in this scenario, 1/8 of the loop time?

I've downloaded script "Utility Box v1.5" and using it I've created camera and ability to zoom to specific locations.

It created camera with parent layer "target camera" where are specified X,Y,Z. Moving those position will focus camera on specific location.
