I've decided to make a feature film with some online friends on a digital backlot without any experience, and I'm really obsessed with crane shots; especially the kind where you start with an establishing shot, then smoothly pan or zoom down to your talent. Can someone explain how or post links to how you do it? The real camera is stationary, so I don't really know how to do the transition. I've seen motion tracking tutorials showing this done, but this particular one didn't go into enough detail for me to understand. Something about UV mapping the tracked footage??? https://youtu.be/RxD6H3ri8RIAround the 2-minute mark.pic unrelated.

>>783506I know how to motion track, my question is how do you create a new camera move and then transition into your composited footage smoothly?
>>783506>blender for motion trackingNo thanks. There are dedicated tools for that which yield better results.
>>783487From the video it looks like he leaves the real camera stationary throughout the crane move until he begins the handheld part, then he moves the real camera.In cg after tracking it he probably makes a second camera, parented to the motion tracked one.Now you can move the second camera wherever and then when you finish the crane move, return it to 0,0,0 (local space) which is the tracked camera's position (since its parented to it).Uv mapping the tracked footage just helps the real-life objects have parralax when you move the that second camera.

>>783487Good show of craftsmanship, utterly boring and unimaginative scene.
>>783577I didn't make it, but it looks really nice.
>>783576>Thread has a different name>Still expect people to find it Sorry not sorry
>>783657You're the new faggot. It's used the same name for years bitch. How fucking hard was it to search for question instead of some arbitrary acronym.For all your talk about it "not having the right name", you fucked up your own OP anyway by putting your smoothbrained question in the fucking top.>Questions that don't deserve their own threadYou're sure as fuck yours doesn't deserve its own thread, yet you fucking made one specifically for it.kys.
Does anyone know how I'd go about making models for 3D Custom Girl? The game uses TAH files for things like objects, clothing and hairstyles. Is there a way I could take models from free 3d sites and convert them to work?I'm not sure where to start.
