We have talked about framing and composition, but what will also be important here is the staging of our product, as this can help make a certain compositional choices either work or not. Indeed often times the two elements need to be created together and so lets make some changes to our doll poses so that they compliment the cmpositional work that we have already done.
Up to this point in our mini project,…we have been quite happy to work with our hero products,…ie, our Japanese wooden dolls, as they came into the scene,…both in terms of their world location…and the actual poses of the characters themselves.…Time, though, in this video,…to make some changes to that setup.…From the dropdown on the main toolbar, then,…let's grab the selection set that we created…when first importing the dolls,…and then just tweak their world space position a little,…so that from the perspective of our dolly shot camera,…the two background dolls are sitting…pretty much central to the main backdrop curtain.…
Now, of course, this can potentially affect the framing…that we have set up for our truck shot camera,…but we can come back and tweak that…a little further down the line, should we want or need to.…The next thing we want to do here is position the lead,…or hero, doll, and so let's select her master controller,…and in the camera view place her…more or less in the center of the two background dolls.…
