iClone Tip of the Day, CAMERA SMOOTH ICON

Todays tip focuses on one of the coolest new camera features, no pun intended. It’s the CAMERA SMOOTHING option that is now found on the timeline. This new function will place a key-frame on the timeline in between your other camera Transform keys, creating a curve to your camera movement. How does it work? Well, first you need to add a camera into your scene and then make as many camera movements as you like, and when your finished, with the timeline open showing your cameras track locate the new Camera icon with a curved line. You’ll find it right beside the Current Frame field. When you click the icon, it will place the mid-point key-frames between the keys you have just placed. For the best possible result combine CAMERA SMOOTHING with camera LOOK AT, you can assign the camera to look at an actor or object in scene, that way the LOOK AT will keep the camera pointed at your subject while smoothing the camera animation. In the image below you can see the location of this new CAMERA SMOOTHING icon. Give it a try and before you know it, your cameras will look better than ever before in iClone!
