Moving Camera Along Spline Over Irregular Surfaces

Recommended Posts

Guest flourish

Hello All,

I am trying to complete a low camera pull out over irregular terrain(I want the camera just above the surface-y direction,at all times during move). I have attempted to project a spline over my terrain in hopes of attaching the camera with null then offsetting it in Y but for some reason the projection does not project to my terrain surface. Any help here would be great or perhaps another way to complete move entirely.

Much Thanks,

flourish

Hi and welcome to the Cafe. :)

Frank Berg created a surface spline projector which you should be able to adapt as your guide spline.

Get it in this thread.

Cheers, Alan.

Another and easy way is to use the Mocca 3 constrain tag as per the attached image. The distance that the camera is above the terrain can be defined as shown. To aim the camera just do the same set up on a null object and use that as a target for the camera.

Hope this helps.
