Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Reformatting and rendering the scene, part of Digital Matte Painting: Changing a Scene From Summer to Winter.
I'm almost ready to render this out, but in order to put plenty of detail in…this piece, I painted it a lot larger than I needed it for the final render.…So, I want to reformat this to a more traditional cinematic dimension, and at the…same time, I can add a nice camera move to it.…I want to go to the top menu and choose Composition > New Composition. And for…this composition, I want to choose HDV 1080 29.97. Press OK to accept it.…
I want to drag the comp that I set up all of my animation into the new comp.…And you can see it's too big, so I'm going to scale it down and then position it…in the frame and then open up all of the Transform properties for the layer.…Set both the Position and Scale keyframe at frame 0 and then move to frame 500…and scale it up a little bit and center the chalet in the frame.…Let's scrub through it. That looks good.…
I still want to set an ease-in and ease-out on the camera move, so select all of…the keyframes and right-click on one of them, scroll down to Keyframe Assistant…
