    transcript of the video was added to the release page and can serve as a manual

    Amy: Hi.

    Amy: Let's say we have this mysterious scene.

    Misstick: Very odd.

    Amy: And we have two cameras to shoot a sequence of shots there's "Camera 1" which will start in front of the lovely Misstick.

    Misstick: You're so sweet.

    Amy: Then it will slowly get closer then it will zoom in for a close up of her pretty face.

    Misstick: Aw come on.

    Amy: And there's "Camera 2" which will remain pointed at her as it moves through the wall.

    Misstick: Did you say through the wall?

    Amy: Yes ladies and gentleman through the wall! ...  until it's in the room behind her. The script mCasual wrote lets you combine many camera shots into one.

    Misstick: It's like in that spice girls song you know to become one.

    Amy: Let's create a camera named "Camera Main"  it must be exactly "Camera Main"  and we launch the script with the poetic name CamSeq. The top part will contain the sequence which is a list of shots. Let's create a shot.

    Misstick: Yeah like why not create a shot !?.

    Amy: This scene uses "Camera 1" and goes from frame 0 to 30.

    Amy: We add it to the sequence using the insert button.

    Amy: The second scene uses "Camera 2" and goes from frame 30 to 60.

    Amy: And here is our complete sequence.

    image

    Amy: We press the do it button.

    Misstick: Hell if I know what that means.

    Amy: And in a fraction of a second the sequence is transferred into "Camera Main".

    Amy: Here's the movie we get when we render frames 0 to 300 from Camera Main's point of view.

    Amy: Link to the download page can be found in the video's description.

    Amy: The end.

    Amy: Or is it.

    Amy: Yeah.

    Misstick: Yeah that would be the end.

    Amy: Good luck and happiness.

    Misstick: May your Christmas sock be filled with vegemite.

    Misstick: In a can that is.

    Misstick was drawn that way and doesn't seem to gain weight over the years she could be on dancing with the star

    The server base render should be a great addition to the community.

    Once you have the CineCamera setup don't forget to grab the mcjEtherCam to assist in rendering the scene. there are a lot of great options including render every other frame and more.

  • Nice. Thank you

    i think i enjoy the included renders in these release threads nearly as much as the brilliant scripts and tools.

    thanks to you both for the work/testing on this one.

    these tools make DS animation viable.

    best,
