I didn’t want to move around much because I didn’t want to mess up the “shot”.
In Carrara,. you can create multiple camera’s from the INSERT menu , and (in the camera options pop-up menu) you can save several different camera “positions” with a name, so you can load that position again, or create another camera and load that saved position.
You can also create a “Target Helper Object” (the equivalent of a NULL object in DS) then you can select your Camera,. go to the (Modifiers) tab in the top right hand panels, and select “Point at” ... then select the new target helper object you created, (or any other object in the scene) from the list.
Now when you move the camera, it’ll always point at that selected object.
I tried some things last night. I added 3 hot air balloons to country roads 2, I believe that is the name. I need to add a couple of cars and some people or at least try.
For some reason I’m not finding how to add cameras on the insert menu. On studio it was just new camera easy peasy. I’m sure it’s easy this way too. I’m just not seeing it.
I started watching some training vids last night but fell asleep lol.
That’s because of their names:
The insert menu has a lot of stuff in there, but I still prefer it to other methods - perhaps habit?
One thing that I prefer to do, however, is to select a current camera and Ctrl C, then Ctrl V (substitute Ctrl for Cmd on Mac)
Simple copy/paste, then rename, from the instances tab on the right. (The box of stuff under the word “Scene” is considered (because it is) the instances tab)
Oh you’re gonna love how easy Carrara really is. Right now you just need to forget about what you used to have to do in D|S. You’ve got Carrara now!
The video’s you’re watching, are those the one’s sold here, by Infinite Skills with the instructor Phil Wilkes?
I have the Advanced Techniques set and just love it! It’s so enjoyable to me that I’m going to buy the Learning Carrara set as well, just for more great TV programming to watch! I wonder if I could buy Mark Bremmer’s stuff from VTS by file, rather than having to stream from a membership. I’ll have to look into that. But Cripeman is another great learn, is free, and highly entertaining.
My other favorite TV is for another software sold at Daz3d called Project Dogwaffle, a post work application. I even made [url]comprehensive playlists of the various episodes[/ur]! Most of those videos are condicted by its developer, Philip Staigerman, a big Carrara fan and user, who also used to work on Carrara starting with version 2! He, too, is highly entertaining. I’ll never have to watch regular TV again!
