Camera question

Postby carmine-yeah on 02/16/2015, 9:14 am

Hi,
I'm new in this forum! I think this is the best site for post-production so I ask here my doubt!
I'm doing a video whit 3d words and 3d objects, for the first time i'm moving the camera through them.
I'm wondering if there's an option to set the point of interest of the camera always in front of where the camera is going.
I apologize if it's not too clear... I mean, imaging the camera as an airplane, if the camera goes left the poi should be left but if it goes in an other direction the poi should change automatically...
I'm not sure if it's possible or if is something stupid...
Thank you for answers

Hi carmine-yeah, welcome. It is possible and not stupid at all. When you create your camera at the top of your Camera Settings pop-up box there is a drop-down which says "Type" - select the One-Node Camera (it doesn't have a Point of Interest setting so should do what you need).
Also are you aware of:
