{Resolved} How have a good animation/movement camera in Houdini 18

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello communities,

I hope you are well ? And let 3D run on computers !!

My concern for the day is quite simple, I am making a layout for a future project. I assure you the movement will be much prettier and better composed thereafter. I impose a limit on doing all of the ship and camera animation in Houdini. Without doing it before in Maya. Currently I use a basic technique which I do not like at all. The simple method of I lock the camera I move in time, I move the camera with the mouse and I key ... Simple but the rendering is not terrible because there are front / rear visually unpleasant. I don't want to put the camera on a spline because it's too linear and soft

The Layout test 1 : youtube.com/watch?v=hPxC-DUwXqQ

I thought of a draw system with 3 levels one for the translate, one for the rotate, and pivot? Is it achievable? Do you have techniques for me to improve?

Thank you very much in advance for your feedback.

yes a simple camera rig should help.

just use a NULL hierarchy parented to your camera. Simple and effective.

something like that, very basic, but work for a lot of scenarios.

You can't complexify by adding more nulls, like separating some rotations for more control.

Also you can add constraints to your camera.

Take a look at the documentation, might help you if you're starting in H.
