Hi gentib,

Would that work for you?

The set-up uses just one main-target, which is driven by a PoseMorph.
Note that the parent object needs to be zeroed out; if this object moves, things fall apart.

All the best

P.S.: Here is an example to have eight targets in a sequence. The progress is done just with a single slider.

hi

I am new to cinema 4d and your scene are very complicated for me

in fact I want to learn this technique (start 04:30 - 12:25)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ik0fgzNl2tk&t=748s&ab_channel=Cinema4DbyMaxon


but the only problem is that he use only 3 cameras

my question is what happens when you have more than 3 (null targets) where to put the others

because Motion Camera/Animation/Targets has only 4 (Targets A1, Targets A2, Targets B1, Targets B2)


so if I have 7 cameras atach with 7 null targets, where to put in Motion cameras?

thanks

Hi gentib,

I have no idea how to simplify it more; perhaps below is a possible approach. Animate a single Target.
Use the Morph Camera and a single Target Tag on the final camera. The Target Tag needs a higher Priority, e.g., 111, so it is calculated after the Morph.
For example, 66 cameras and one moving (animated) target. (I could have used 120 cameras as in the Matrix/Bullet shot, but I think this will do)

I hope that helps.

Enjoy your weekend

Camera Morph—- Target Morph

Here is a set-up that can take as many cameras or targets as you like, and each (Target or Camera) Can be progressed with the slider in the Camera Morph. Since you used this tool, to use it twice should be no problem.

Example

Priorities!

A short screen capture might help:

The resulting Camera is usable in the Motion Set up, no targets needed of course.
