Adding a dynamic camera move can enhance the animation already present on objects. In this video, learn how to set and manipulate keyframes on a camera rig to produce an animated camera move.
- [Instructor] Let's look at how we create…a simple camera animation…using the rig we created previously.…Now, I've got this animation here.…I had a lot of fun creating it.…And if you want to dive into this scene file,…just remember to turn off or delete…the cache,…because you won't be able to make any changes…to the effectors otherwise.…So, just bear that in mind.…Now then, let's import our camera rig.…So, I'll press cmd + shift + o.…
We can use File, Merge Objects.…We'll do that, and we'll bring in the camera rig,…open it up, and let's look through the camera.…Okay, so I think the camera's a bit low to begin with,…so we'll just bring this up on the y-axis,…and that looks about right to me.…Maybe we can bring it in a touch, 1600.…And now, the rest of the movement, if we play this back,…I think we've got our endpoint, and it's always useful…to find out out where you want to end up.…And I think really we want to do the rest of this animation…using the camera rig null because we're going to rotate around…to reveal the final result.…
Here, learn key foundational concepts, such as spline modeling, lighting, and materials, which are crucial to understanding exactly how this 3D application functions. Instructor Andy Needham covers practical techniques for extruding shapes; working with MoGraph tools such as Cloners and Effectors; and adding lighting and camera views for fully realized 3D motion graphics. Plus, find out how to integrate assets from Adobe Illustrator, composite multipass renders with the After Effects and C4D workflow, and use the Takes System to try different materials and settings and export your projects in the exact sizes and resolutions you need.
