|After extending the clip
at the start
and at the end by a few seconds each, perhaps we would like to make a
slight change in the cameramovement somehere.
For example, at the end of the clip, when the camera comes to a stop,
looking at the desert dunes, perhaps we'd like to gently drift into
Of course we can't re-render the scene from 3D, no time for that. We'll
have to do what we can just by scaling/transforming the existing frames.
Select the Timeline editor from the Animation menu:
Animation > Timeline...
This will bring up the tool that lets you
apply filters along the frames on the timeline.
Select the Transform filter, and set a
keyframe at 100% (1.0 factor) scale, essentially unchanged, for the
start of the animation.
Then set another keyframe with same value near the end, where the zoom
will start to increase.
Thereafter, increase the scale, or perhaps also change the position a
little, drifting upward. Set another keyframe towards the end.
You can now render the filter and it will keep the clip unchanged for
most of it. Towards the end, it will gradually and slightly scale up
(zoom in) and drift a bit higher if you changed the position too.
Ok, so now the movie may look a nit like this:
Be sure to often save your work in progress, and use a number in the
file name. Make that number increase each time so you have a historical
reference as to which save was done first and which was done last.
The native DWA format is the fatest to save, so it's perfect for a
quick memory dump. You want to occasionally do some house cleaning
though, since these are uncompressed files. Make sure you don't run out
of disk space.
DWA Viewer for Quick Movie Playback?
If you need an external standalone movie player that can play your DWA
animation files directly from disk without loading into RAM, check the
free DWA Viewer. It is Open Source software and you're welcome to make
your own, port it to Mac and Linux, make a plugin version for Irfanview
and other popular viewers.
