In Topic: Push shot on a character or object

16 December 2018 - 05:51 PM

Don't use the target symbol if the subject is stationary. Just frame the shot as you want at both ends of the timeline period you want. Then change the position of the second shot if you need to adjust the speed of the zoom in. You may want to adjust the DoF as well.

In Topic: panning the camera

11 December 2018 - 09:55 PM

Frame your first shot and choose "Jump camera to this view" (the red arrow).

Don't target the first person (i.e. if the yellow crosshairs appear then click on them to remove them.)


Move the timeline a few seconds on.


Hold down the mouse wheel and move the camera to your last position and choose  "Move camera to this view" (the green arrow).

Again make sure you remove the target symbol if it appears.


Holding down the wheel makes the camera pan smoothly rather than rotate.

Using the targets can cause unwanted results in situations like this.

In Topic: cars

 You can then arrange for your characters to sit in a chair and put the car around them but then you can't move the car so you would have to green screen it and then add it in later.


You can put a navmesh down first and then place the chairs on that. That will allow you to move them with the car.


I did convert someone's sketchup limo to let the window come down and doors open. Not sure where it is but I'll have a look.


Here are a couple of demos of it. :-




In Topic: Sketchup help!!

Make sure you don't update SketchUp 8. Install the new version in another location - just in case they do something mean like remove the "Save As" to older versions ;)

In Topic: uploading

You are probably better off uploading it to Vimeo or YouTube and just posting a link here.
