Join Rob Garrott for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring important camera settings, part of CINEMA 4D Essentials 3: Cameras, Animation, and Deformers.
If you've ever tried to use a camera in the real world, you know that they have a lot of controls. …CINEMA 4D's Camera Object is no different from that. …There are a ton of settings there. …I'm going to cover the most important ones in this movie. …Before I can get started with that though, we need to have a Camera Object in the scene. …So, let's go ahead and add one. …I'm in the Perspective View; I'm going to click on the Add Camera Object Icon here. …And now I have a Camera. …The most important camera setting that there is, is actually not on the Camera Object. …You can see that I've got a whole bunch of sections here on the Camera Attributes, but …the most important one is actually in the Render Setting.…
I'm going to bring up the Render Settings icon by clicking on this little button right …here and you can see that it says Edit Render Settings. …I can also get to this Window by going Command+B or Ctrl+B. …The most important Camera Setting is the Aspect Ratio. …The Aspect Ratio is the relationship with the width to the height to the viewport. …
