release camera target over time


I'm animating a camera move. From the beginning of the animation the camera has to follow a target object and later on it needs to let go of the target and move on. I created a null object to act as the target. I don't want the camera to follow it throughout, just at the beginning for a couple of seconds..

Any ideas on how to tell the camera to at some point let go of the target?

Thanks you

You can try using a Constrain Tag (Aim and Up mode)
or mix a Target using expresso, see the quick scene example:

camtargetmix scene R11

Doing lot of camera work there are a few camera animation packages
out there.
-SteadyCAMPRO (My favorite Check out my sign.)
(Both commercial)
-and CSTools a free bunch of good expresso rigs that
includes camera set ups.
