So here is my final pose. I then want to use variation in this to create…something a bit more jaunty.…Now the middle and right mouse buttons the track X, Y and track Z tools work just as expected.…However, if I use the left mouse button to get the orbit camera tool, I notice…that the Skater kind of spins off the screen way too fast.…The reason that's happening is a point of interest is set pretty close to the…camera. That's what giving me this exaggerated movement.…So in this case, we're going to undo. Press V to return to the Selection tool.…Move the point of interest to be more in line with video screen. I will press the…Shift key to keep on even keel here.…
Put it right around my video wall.…Proceed to go back to Unified Camera tool.…And now when I use the Orbit tool, I am getting a much more predictable,…controllable pane of my scene. Now undo.…Okay, this is my end pose. I am happy with it.…Let's pick a good time in the music to end up on this pose.…I'll scroll down in the timeline to my music.…
