When the virtual camera was originally released, there was no way to precisely set the x and y position—or even properly reset it. With this new release, you can use the camera properties to precisely set the values of the camera x and y position. Having direct control over both the x and y properties of virtual camera position now allows for more precise movement.
- [Instructor] When the virtual camera…was originally released, there was no way…to precisely set the X and Y position,…or even properly reset it.…With this new release of animate,…we can use the camera properties…to precisely set the values of the camera X and Y position.…To see this in action, let's choose the camera tool…from our tools panel.…And what we'll want to do is actually start the camera out,…zoomed in and focused on the drip,…so, let's reposition this here,…and we can pan upwards, so that we see the drip.…
Alright, now when this drip occurs,…we need to zoom out to see the entire animation.…Let's start that right about here on frame 40.…So I'll right click and choose to…insert a keyframe.…And then we'll go to the end,…somewhere around 70,…and insert another keyframe.…
On this keyframe, we're going to zoom out…to see the entire animation.…And reposition.…So, you'll note here that it's kinda fiddly,…trying to get this exactly right.…However, in my camera properties,…I can now set the precise X and Y position,…
