Default How do I...? Create a copy situation (more detailed inside) - 10-10-2010, 08:40 PM

So look I am doing a project, it's about a jet taking off and landing after some conflict.

Now I am fixing the beginning part which is the taking off part. I want to make so that after Camera Point View A has seen the taking off action, I want to repeat the taking off action by using a Camera Point View B, which means the jet must be back at the starting position as soon as the Camera Point turns to a new angle, how is this possible?

I remember there is some set dummy on object, and if I set if at the beginning part of the plane, am I able to double the taking off part with a second point of view without disrupting the movie sequence?

Not entirely sure what you're asking, but dummy objects can be set at the camera's current position, then you can set the camera's point of view to the dummy object at any time without interrupting the movie by using the "set point of view to [object]" with a duration set to zero seconds.

In addition, you can set a dummy at the plane's starting position, then have it set it's point of view to the dummy object in a duration of zero seconds

Try using the 'Do together' block from the bottom of the screen. That will run everything in it at one time.
