Join Rob Garrott for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating dynamic camera movement with Motion Camera, part of CINEMA 4D Essentials 3: Cameras, Animation, and Deformers.
New to CINEMA 4D R14 is a very special new tag called the Motion Camera Tag. …What Motion Camera Tag allows you to do is add dynamic motion to Camera object without any keyframes. …In order to see what this tag does I'm going to first need to add a camera to the scene. …Let's click on the Camera object and when I have the camera; I'm not looking through …it yet, I just have it on the scene. …Let's right-click on the Camera object and go to Motion Camera Tags>Motion Camera. …When I do that, my camera jumped to center of the world. …Now that's a very big gotcha. …There's a special workflow to use with this.…
Right now I just want to talk about the settings. …Let's see what this has actually done to our camera. …We'll hit Play on the keyboard and you could see that the camera is now kind of bouncing …and rotating as if this little guy were moving. …And if we look through our Camera object, I'll click on the Active Camera icon you can …see that we've actually got movement in our camera. …That's all without any keyframes. …
