Create a line for a walkthrough path.
- [Instructor] In the next few movies,…we'll learn how to create a camera walkthrough animation…by attaching the camera to a spline curve…using a path constraint.…We'll set this up in an optimal manner to maximize…our creative freedom and also to avoid some…of the common issues that can occur with a path constraint.…Let's begin by reviewing the camera setup…that we've seen so far in this course.…I created a physical camera.…I'll select it and go to the Modify panel.…
I immediately disabled its target.…Then I change its Rotation Order in the Motion panel.…In the Rotation section,…I've chosen the Euler Parameters Axis Order of ZXZ.…Then I rotated the camera in Gimbal mode…to the starting orientation I desired.…Choose the Rotate tool…and switch the reference coordinate system over to Gimbal.…I wanted the camera to start off facing in the world y-axis.…
So I set X to zero, Y to 90, and X to zero.…Then I created a point helper…and linked the camera to that point helper.…If we select the point helper, it's named Camera Helper,…
