Sean Dove Uses Camera Mapping in C4D to Create an Animation That Plays With Camera Perspective.
Camera Mapping or Camera Projections can be an easy way to set up a realistic environment. It can take care of both the modeling details along with the textures in the scene, all in one go. Camera mapping has a lot of other uses too, and Sean Dove shows how you can create an exciting play with views and perspective.
Playing With Perspective
Sean’s tutorial is a recreation of a creative piece created by the mighty BUCK. In it, Sean shows how you can create a simple room and project a texture so that the camera move will reveal the surface lining up at the end of the movement. ” I thought we’d have a quick look at putting together a scene using simple shapes and then have a play with some camera projections and perspective and see how it turns out!” Dove says.
It’s a simple concept and process, and Sean covers some quick tips for working with Camera Projections in C4D too.
