Default Camera Controls - 04-07-2010, 03:16 AM

Here's my question,

How do I make the Camera move toward a persons face, without it going "inside" the face. And I dont want the camera to move at all. i just want it to go to the face

Thanks in Advance

Are you talking about while editing the Alice world or during playback?

While editing: Right-click the camera object on the list on the left of the screen, then select "Camera move to..." and select the head of the object you want the camera to move to. Then, just click and hold the back arrow on the camera controls until the camera is out of the head and pointing at the face.

During Playback: Use the editing method above to position the camera the way you want, then click the "More Controls" button on the right of the "Add Objects" screen, then click "Drop Dummy at Camera." Set that dummy object's vehicle property to the head of the object, then have the camera set it's point of view (and vehicle) to the dummy object at the point in the movie you want it to look at the face.
