 How do I...? Create a copy situation (more detailed inside)
 Otori Guest   Status: Posts: n/a 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?

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 Last edited by x2495iiii; 10-10-2010 at 08:56 PM.
