5 Tricks On Using Cameras In Maya
This tutorial covers 5 cool tricks you can do using cameras in Maya.
1. More Controlled Camera Tools
Go to view>camera tools>... Select the tool you want to edit and go to display>UI elements>tool settings.
2. Additional Camera Tools
Go to view>camera tools.
As you can see there are tools beyond the default tumble, track, dolley and zoom. Using these additional tools, you can create cool camera angle effects.
3. Rendering Resolution
Go to view>camera settings>resolution gate.
Now you don't have to worry about accidently clipping something out when rendering. The resolution gate represents what will be rendered. If you're rendering to verticle resolution (example: width-100, height-400), go to view>camera settings>verticle.
4. Using A Model As A Camera
Models can be converted into cameras. To do this, select the model and go to panels>look through selected.
5. Interactive Shading
(Note: This only works if you're in shaded view)
