Sure Target 2 Test Video UPDATED

Here is a quick test utilizing some new features of Sure Target 2. Notice the bouncy movement and the subtle roll and pitch of the camera as it moves.

Think about being in a car with very soft suspension…

Watch Test Video (looping)

The camera Roll is also velocity based so that it will inherit the speed of your camera movements and the amount is controllable as with the inertia.

You might also notice the variable target distance from the first title to the second… Each Target has a slider to control the (dolly/truck) distance from the camera so some targets can be close and others far without having to move your layers or animate the camera manually.

UPDATE: Just doing some more testing and should have a tutorial and download ready next week. See you then.
