Learn how to expertly control and animate cameras in your Maya projects and give viewers a window into your 3D world.
- [Voiceover] Hello, I'm Aaron F. Ross and it's my pleasure to welcome you to Cinematography in Maya. Among the topics we'll cover are: controlling viewport display, manipulating orthographic cameras, setting clipping planes, framing shots, zooming in and out with focal length, non-linear editing with the camera sequencer, creating simple and compound camera moves, setting up a turntable animation, achieving isometric and tilt-shift effects, rendering depth of field, and rack-focus animation.
For many years I taught a university course in Maya camera techniques. This online course is the culmination of the experience I gained in this subject. Let's get behind the camera and explore Cinematography in Maya.
