I’d be most grateful if someone would tell me where I’m going wrong. I’m going through the tutorials and have got to Lesson 28, and have loaded the supplied ‘Animation-start’ file and have followed the instructions exactly through lessons 26 to 28. The next instructions (in Lesson 28) are:
3. Place the cursor over the camera. Ensure the cursor is a single arrow, not a cross. Do not drag the camera by the blue handle….
4. Drag the camera to the interior of the room… A blue point appears where the camera was just located and a blue trajectory line links the first point with the new camera location.
I can see the camera (Camera to Director, Top View) as a feint triangle with its base pointing at the scene and a blue point at its apex. if the cursor is over the blue point the cursor does indeed change to a cross, and the ‘standard’ arrow appears anywhere else in the canvas, including over the camera. But when I try to drag the camera, I see a narrow box being drawn (black lines) that disappears when the mouse button is released; the camera stays where it is and no blue trajectory line appears. I’ve checked and double checked that I’ve followed all the previous instructions - ensuring Auto-key is selected, etc….
I am using the Artist Guide that appears when choosing Menu Help -> Help Topics, which gives Bryce 6 Artist’s Guide. Has something changed in Bryce 7 that requires a different method? Or am I just being stupid and missing something obvious? I’ve searched through the forums and other documentation on the DAZ web site but can’t see this problem described anywhere.
Any advice will be gratefully received. I obtained Bryce 7 Pro in order to make short scenes to be used as backdrops for a green-screened ‘real’ walking actor (walking on the spot, legs not in view!) so I really do need to know how to track the Bryce camera.
