Cutscenes? How do you put the parts together?

I just watched a demo cutscene made by Matt Boles. It was fun to watch.

Besides the animated visuals, the camera moves about. I was wondering if you all have any links to tuts on setting something like this up?

I mean how do you put your pieces together, the lighting, the camera movement the object movements and colorations.

Thans very much.

Just use IPOs to animate the camera. If you want sudden jumps in camera position, use multiple cameras and switch between them with a timer-controlled Scene>Set Camera actuator. Basically you want to have a lot of objects with animations triggered by timers.

Thanks. Makes sense.

Alternatively to switching cameras you can move the camera in 1 frame. (not a good idea for rendering with motion blur, but good for anything else.)
