Advanced animation

So now let's go a little bit deeper in animation. I want to do a smooth fly-around of this house and this will show you some techniques for getting very precise and smooth animation. So I've got this house and what I want to do is take a camera and fly it around and do a 360 around the house while I'm still pointing at the house. Now in order to do that, I probably need to create what's called a path, or In this case, I'm actually creating a guide to place the camera along that path.

So if I was going to do a 360 around the house, typically what I would do is I would think to draw a circle. But if you think about it, the circle really is just a smooth polygon. And what I really want to do is snap to the corners of the polygon. So let's go ahead and actually draw a polygon. Now the number of sides you draw will actually control how smooth your animation is. I'm going to do this animation a little bit rough and I'm just going to draw a hexagon. So I'm go...
