Transform camera sensor to offset the frame.
- [Instructor] One of the many advantages of the physical…camera, is its ability to emulate a so-called view camera,…or a tilt-shift camera that allows the independent…movement of the lens and the sensor.…In this case, we can use the lens shift effect of the…physical camera to more interestingly compose our shot…while still giving the freedom…of orbiting around the scene,…and taking it in from slightly different angles.…
Right now, I've got a physical camera with a target.…The target is placed at the visual center of interest,…which is this plant on the table top.…And I'll go over to the viewport controls,…down here on the right,…and we've got Orbit Camera.…Click on that, and click in the physical camera,…and you can see we're able to orbit, or tumble,…around that plant.…But it's dead center in the middle of the frame,…and that's not a very visually interesting place…for it to be.…
We an offset it, so we can obey the design rule of thirds.…The obvious way to do that is to simply move the target.…We could try that.…
