Animating camera issue

321 Views, 3 Replies

I am currently trying to put together an animation. In the animation I need the camera to move so I use the Add Camera Action command on the Animation Timeline dialog box. To make the camera stationary, I add a camera action, skip a few seconds, then add another camera action without moving the view. After doing this the camera zooms out, I click edit then definition and the zoom is set to 1 deg. To get around this I think I could just move the camera closer to the object, but in the future I would like it if the program worked like the previous versions. I am running Autodesk Inventor Professional 2011 if that helps anyone. Thank you.

Are you trying to animate camera positions but not record while the camera moves between positions?


I'm trying to get a sense of what you are trying to achieve. If you can clarify the end goal, perhaps I can be of some assistance. Thanks.
