Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a basic animation with a 3D camera, part of Motion Graphics for Video Editors: Working with 3D Objects.
- All right, now that we've got a basic scene built,…let's work to animate the camera…to create some simple movement.…Remember, After Effects cameras are pretty easy to move…if you keep the controls straightforward.…What I'm gonna do here is reduce the performance by…selecting the CINEMA 4D object…and switching it to use Wireframe or Box only.…You see that that simplifies…the amount of rendering that's needed.…Now, let's twirl down the camera here…and go to about the two-second mark…and simply twirl down Transform…and set a keyframe for Position and Point of Interest.…
This adds a keyframe for where the camera's gonna land.…I can now go back to the beginning here…and simply move the camera's position,…perhaps moving it on the x-axis…so it swings a little bit out.…There we go.…And maybe a little further away…by changing the z-axis.…And you see that we pull away from our logo.…Maybe the y-axis to drop the camera higher…or lower.…
In any case, it's a pretty simple move.…We've got keyframes there for both Position…and Point of Interest.…
