Camera and action!!!!

  1. 1. Camera and Action!!!! Guilford County Sci. Vis. V204.01 part 3
  2. 2. Four Elements of Using Cameras <ul><li>Where you are standing as you view the scene is the camera location or the eye location. </li></ul><ul><li>Where you are looking is the center of interest or camera interest. </li></ul><ul><li>The tilt of the camera </li></ul><ul><li>The camera’s zoom </li></ul>
  3. 3. Free and Target Cameras <ul><li>A free camera can point anywhere in a scene. It is more useful when panning a scene. </li></ul><ul><li>A target camera points to an object and is used for tracking animation. Both the camera and the target can be animated separately. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Free Cameras <ul><li>A free camera can point anywhere in a scene. It is more useful when panning a scene. </li></ul><ul><li>Free cameras face in the direction of the view it was created in. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Target Cameras <ul><li>A target camera points to an object. </li></ul><ul><li>It can be locked on the object and will move with the object. </li></ul><ul><li>It can also follow a path. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Camera Parameters <ul><li>Lens – the length of the lens can be changed (i.e. for close ups.) </li></ul><ul><li>Orbit -- the camera can be rotated around an object. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Camera Parameters <ul><li>The field of view is an angle that defines the objects that you can see as you look in a particular direction. Objects to the left or right of your field of view will not be seen. Camera zoom and lens settings effect you field of view. A wide angle takes in more of the scene while a narrow angle produces a tight shot. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Camera Parameters <ul><li>The depth of field is a measurement of focus accuracy for a given distance. For example, when you look at a scene the main subject may be in focus while the background and foreground would appear blurred. </li></ul><ul><li>Zoom – Moves the camera closer or farther away from an object. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Camera Placement <ul><li>Camera placement will affect the mood, the perception, and the interest of a viewer. Framing camera shots can help the viewer understand the story. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Camera Placement- The 3 Shots <ul><li>Long shots display the environment and are used to define the general area before the character is displayed or action begins. </li></ul><ul><li>Medium distance shots might be from a character’s waist or chest to their head and would be used to make gestures or movements clear. </li></ul><ul><li>Close-ups might show the individual parts of a cell, the rim of a test tube, or the opening of a book. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Camera Placement- Long <ul><li>Long shots display the environment and are used to define the general area before the character is displayed or action begins. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Camera Placement- Medium <ul><li>Medium distance shots might be from a character’s waist or chest to their head and would be used to make gestures or movements clear. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Camera Placement- Close <ul><li>Close-ups might show the individual parts of a cell, the rim of a test tube, or the opening of a book. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Camera Placement <ul><li>An example of how framing might be used would be a scene where a car is traveling down a highway: you first see it as a small object that is a part of its environment (long shot); it grows larger and the environment around it is reduced (medium shot); as it passes, only the individual elements of the vehicle are shown (close-up.) The shots are reversed as the car moves away from you. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Camera Placement: Long shot
  16. 16. Camera Placement: Medium shot
  17. 17. Camera Placement: Close up
  18. 18. Storyboards <ul><li>Storyboards are an important element in defining and preparing for camera locations and other decisions. </li></ul>
