In this section, I am going to show you how to create a fake 3D camera tracking…shot, so it's as if we are dollying through the scene, and we are seeing the object move…towards us at a greater speed.…So to give you an idea about what we are not trying to do here, is the simplest kind…of the camera move that you'll see, where we have a static background image, and…we simply make it bigger. We tween between that and the large one.…The effect that we are going to be doing is a little more sophisticated, and that…will be something like this.…If you look carefully, you'll see that the distances between the boxes are…increasing as we move physically into the shot.…
That's what it feels like.…So this is still technically a zoom shot.…It's doing the same thing as the first shot; the big difference is we are also…adding motion tweening to the objects in the scene, and they're pulling apart…like this, relative to one another.…And that's creating this effect of space, and that can be used for all kinds of purposes.…
