Struggling [to be] a[n] artist

{27 October 2010}   A few Tricks

A few things I’ve needed to ask others and Keep forgetting myself.

To have a shape within a shape (like a cut out) Have them on different layers (path layer thingy is fine) window>pathfinder and find which ever one says “exclude” 😀

3ds Max:
Getting a Camera to follow around a circle:
Make a circle, (with the camera selected) then going to Animation -> Constraints -> Path Constraint and picking the circle should automatically get two keyframes that go from 0 to 100% of the % along path property. The % along path will be in the rollout with the path constraints (somewhere in that side panel)

et cetera
