Animation Help
« on: January 22, 2008, 04:13:09 am »

I'm trying to do a sequence and want to know how to make the sequence available from 8 sides. In a circle equally around the model to make an animation.

It's not clear --- at least to me --- what it is you're trying to do.  What do you mean by sequence "available" from 8 sides?  Do you mean that you want to rotate your camera around (8 sides?) your scene?  Or conversely, you could keep the camera stationary, and rotate the object(s) in your scene.

Is this the sort of thing you're after?

I figured it out   :-[ sort of -I make a sequence then load it scene with 8 cameras all away around at the same distance pointing at the figure. I want Ortho view though so all the way around.

You actually shouldn't need 8 cameras.  By parenting the camera to a target in the middle of your scene, you can rotate one camera to the correct location over 8 frames, and it should be easier to set up.
