Basic to Advanced Professional use of the After Effects Camera. Rob uses two projects to explain how to animate and control the After Effects Camera in a 3D environment. The first takes you through a winding art gallery and out a picture window. The second builds upon techniques explained earlier and features a very cool Easy 360 degree Tracking Shot around a rock band. Rob uses clips from Crowd Control from All Bets Are Off* in the training to demonstrate how you can combine live video with stills and the camera for a convincing 3D composite in After Effects.
