Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Cameras and lights, part of After Effects CC 2019 Essential Training: Motion Graphics.
- [Narrator] In addition to having three D layers enabled…in a composition, After Effects also gives us the ability…to add cameras and lights to our three D space.…When added into a scene that has three D layers,…cameras can frame up the elements in the scene…from a much different view, much like the real world.…Likewise, lights can eliminate some layers…while obscuring others in darkness.…Here in this movie, we'll take a look…at how adding cameras and lights can bring a new level…of depth to our compositions.…So here in this composition I've got all three D layers…and I'm going to create a brand new camera.…Let's go down here in this empty space,…right click, and say new camera.…
Alternately, you can come up here to layer…and go to new camera as well.…Under the camera settings,…we have a couple different options here.…The first one of which is the two-node or one-node camera.…I'm going to leave it at two-node.…The two-node camera creates a camera…and a second node called the point of interest…and that acts as a target for the cameras to look at.…
