    multiple cameras?

    Is there a way to keyframe multiple cameras into Lightwave? Say if I wanted to go from a close up to a wide shot, or a few quick edits. Or am I going to have to export each angle into an editor?

    Not natively. Yet. I believe there is a plug-in at flay.com called switcher that will allow you to switch cameras during a render. I always just render out seperate shots and then composite them in Adobe Premiere.

    If you are not using field rendering, or using motion blur, you can move the camera between frames. Like if the last frame of shot 1 is at frame 300 make a keyframe there, and then move the camera to the new position and make a key frame at 301. You'll have to adjust your tension on both of the frames, so your camera doesn't anticipate the move.

    Thanks all! I'll try each of these, see what is most effective. I had a feeling it was going to be slightly tricky but I wanted to make sure there wasn't an easier way first.

    Good idea Jockomo, I didn't even think of that one. I'll have to use that since I rarely ever use motion blur or field rendering.
