Lights, Camera, Action

Well, today is the day

Today, I will teach you guys how to make a camera angle in Maya…finally

So, what you need to do first, is set the stage! make whatever you want for this, I’m using Davie for mine. Now, I want Davie to fall into oblivion for this(sorry Davie, I love you), so what I will need is a camera that will rotate around Davie first, and then angle down to him falling. This can be simply done using a track for the camera and the rotate tool.

I’m pretty sure most people don’t know how to make a camera, so don’t worry, I will tell you-um, type for you- how to make a camera. Go to the ‘create’ tab, and click on ‘cameras’. Just click the first Camera. Now, you can move this camera around to shoot your character. to look through the camera, just go to Panels, and hit Perspective. However, you need to select the camera first before you do that.


Most people want the camera to move around their object without having to manually doing it. So, under ‘view’, scroll down to ‘camera tools’. In this window, you can see that you can pick from ‘dolly tool’ and ‘track tool’. Pick whichever you want; I will be experimenting with this to see which one I prefer. If you guys want to set that camera in a certain spot for the animation, just use the ‘set key’, like what we did in the animation tutorial(the one where i teach you guys how to animate things and make a time line).


That’s it! Sorry guys if this one was really short, I promise you that I will make longer ones in the future.

I love you guys so much. Have an awesome day!
