View Full Version : Camera + HardFX Question, Please Help

09-14-2004, 09:09 AM
Hey Guys, here's my situation. I'm trying to recreate a handheld camera look. In my scene I have camera and a wall. I want the camera to hit the wall and fall to the floor realistically following the correct laws of gravity. I'm pretty sure I can accomplish this easily using Hardfx. My only delema is connecting the Hardfx to the camera! Here's what I did. I created a dummy object in the shape of a real camera, created a wall, flew it at the wall using Hardfx and collision. Tweaked the settings till I got the motion that I liked. Now that I have it I can't link it to the camera for the life of me. Is there something I'm missing? I had the idea that once I created the correct motion I would bake it to xyz coordinates and attach that to the camera, but I can't seem to find how to bake the Hardfx motion to xyz coords. if anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Use the MakePath function on the hardFX edit tab. That will create a null that follows the hardFX motion. Then parent the camera to the null.
