View Full Version : Newbie XSI Camera Question

12 December 2008, 03:32 PM
Hey guys I have been studying XSI 6.5 for 7 months and i have been sinking my teeth into a little of everything, as you can imagine there is a lot of different concepts to go over. (lol) I want to have multiple camera shots in my animation to make it come to life even father. But I'm not clear on how to go about it and on how to render them?

Any and all help will be useful

You would typically render the different cameras as separate scenes/passes, then bring all your renders into an NLE and build up your video scene by scene.

You can also animate the camera in the Mixer(allows you to get hard cuts),assuming you just want to show a single scene from multiple angles.

I'm sure there are about 1million ways to do this differently. I use the mixer to rough things out, then use separate scenes for the final renders.

I'm sure others will chime in with their favorite workflow.
