Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Animating the camera, part of Toon Boom Animate and Harmony Essential Training.
- Okay, so now we've set up our multiplane stage,…and we have the camera.…And if you don't see the camera graphically displayed…then this button here will reveal the actual…arc of the lights of the line of sight.…And then you have Reset View and Reset Rotation,…which we don't need to mess with at the moment.…So let me then set a key frame for the camera position.…So just click on here and hit F6.…And I'm going to set another one for the end.…And click it here, F6.…
And I think all we have to do now is use the…Advanced Animation tool, this will show you the XYZ handler.…Now, watch as I move this forward.…And we can move it down.…And if you find this handler a little awkward,…a little clumsy, then simply select this…and move inside the Camera view here.…So let's try that, because I think it's much more intuitive.…I'm going to close this window, close this and close this.…And in this window I'm going to go…View, Show, Camera Mask.…
Now all we see is what the camera sees.…So here is our shot, as we zoom in.…So let's just reposition.…
