I want to do an animation for a cruise we went on as to where the ship went. It will zoom in at the stops and out as it crosses the ocean etc. I am downloading satellite images for as it leaves Brisbane (these will be zoomed right in) and then images zoomed out as it crosses the ocean.
So I was thinking of using the video editing section in blender to stitch the images into the correct places and zoom, move etc. Basically I want an image that is zoomed right out as the background, and then I will place zoomed in images over the top where the camera will be close. When the camera moves out, all images will need to scale at the same rate and move with the main image as the camera moves across. Any ideas on the best way to achieve that? I was going to use a plane, but then have to deal with lighting etc. Can I do it as a video edit in blender without needing any 3d functions?
