Cinematographer Matt Workman shares his Previs Camera Script for Autodesk Maya which automates creating cameras in Maya with preset definitions for some popular real-world film cameras, saving time when doing previs work.
The script creates a window that automates creating a Maya camera with the film back for following cameras. Arri Alexa 1080 16×9, Red Epic 5k 16×9, Red MX 4k 16×9
The script will allow you to create cameras in Maya with the proper film back settings for three popular film cameras, the Arri Alexa 1080 16×9, Red Epic 5k 16×9, Red MX 4k 16×9.
One of the greatest features of the script however, is that you can create and place a camera from the current view, allowing you to navigate and frame up the scene quickly placing cameras down where you wish, with all the proper settings of the real-world camera. The script is available on Matt’s Previs Camera Script Page here.
