View Full Version : Multiple shots in 1 rendering

This is probably a very fundamental animation situation, but I can't figure it out.

Three camera shots: vehicle coming towards the camera 1, vehicle going from left to right across camera 2, vehicle going away from camera 3.

How do I tell the cameras when to take over for each other?
Or should I be using a single camera (I definitely want 3 distinct shots, not a pan), and if so, how do I do it using keyframes that don't sweep the camera around?

Sorry if my stupid is showing.

Under utilities/Master Plugins. Add Camera Selector then move to the required keyframe and camera and 'Add' in the 'camera selector panel. Repeat for each keyframe that you require the camera to change.

Beware, this is very likely not to render as expected on a renderfarm (well, using lwsn), so you'll have to manually cut the scene apart once you want to render.

Cheers,
Mike
