Animating Camera Motion
Terminology of Camera
Specification of Camera Motion
With a camera, usually more interested in what it's looking at than its exact orientation
Camera animation may be specified by
A motion path for the camera itself.
A motion path for a lookat point
(possibly derived from the motion of an object of interest).
Camera moved along the motion path and the orientation of camera determined by the lookat point.
Ideally, ``focus would be pulled'' to match the distance to object of interest.
Tilt might be constrained to lie within certain bounds.
