Okay, I’m working on using Blender and Icarus to create CG backgrounds for video. Here’s the WIP thread. Right now, I’m still doing basic tests.
I have two questions. First, is there a way to reduce the amount of motion I get with the IPO curves? Right now the motion is scaled wrong and I have to make the scene hundreds of times larger than normal. I tried using Scale in the IPO editor but that also reduces the length of the animation, which screws everything up.
Secondly, right now I am working on a test which includes variable focal length (the camera zooms in and out). For the static focal length tests, I’d been parenting a plane with the footage on it to the camera. This works fine with the new test, until the camera zooms out, and then the footage doesn’t fill the whole view anymore. Is there any way I can fix this?
