Learn the Method, Not Just The Software!

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.
