Hi,

There used to be a tutorial on a Camera trick that was somewhat popular during the 90's, it has a name but I don't know what it was, so I can't even try to search....

The best I can describe this is... The Camera moves away from the subject while at the same time zooming in on it or viceversa.... I can't even remember the name of a movie in where its done...

Anyone know what it is called so I can search for it? Or how to do it?


Thnx

The poltergeist scene in the hallway really stuck with me since I saw it in the movies ages ago.
