Intro Film "Spring" by the Blender Animation Studio
Learn how to handle your Blender camera like a pro
There's a lot - a lot lot - that goes into creating a film.
Lucky for you, Wayne takes the guesswork out of camera movement and delivers all the do's and don'ts in his new course.
- field of view
- the types of camera lenses
- depth of field and focus
- framing (important!)
- and different camera rigs
- types of camera shots - as well as angles
- and, of course, the different camera moves
Wayne illustrates this with hands-on examples.
There are also a few different special camera moves we'll cover, like camera shake and handheld camera.
The course comes with graded exercises, so you can put your new skills to the test.
