Although still renders can really show off a product in an advert, moving cameras add a whole new level of quality and interest to a product shot. We will be making two camera moves here, a dolly shot and a truck shot. To start with then, we will Dolly into our product, whilst making sure that framing and composition remain forefront in our minds.
- [Voiceover] Having set things up so as to make…the animation of our cameras a simpler process,…we're ready now to start adding some…basic motion to the rigs that we have created.…Before doing that, however, there is…a quick change that I want to make…to the settings on both cameras.…With the dolly camera selected, then,…let's come over to the modify tab…and uncheck the targeted option.…This, typically speaking, will help us get…a little more of a natural feel to…any animation that we add to the camera.…Not forgetting, of course, that we want to do the same…thing for our truck camera as well.…
Before adding motion to the scene,…there are also a few animation and render…preference questions that need to be answered.…For instance, how long will each of…the camera sequences be?…What is the frame rate at which…they will be rendered?…And also, at what resolution will…the output need to be produced?…Well, let's assume that we have been given…a brief that asks for two five-second sequences…that are to be rendered at a finished resolution…
