Hi. This is my first post. I want to know if it's possible to do an optic flare that's fixed in the footage while the camera pans without having to key each frame by hand.

Thanx

Ian

No, You'd have to manually adjust the optic every frame but you can reduce the amount of keyframes depending on how smooth your camera pan is.

Spydurhank is right. If the camera movment is rather smooth, you can simply keyframe every 3-10 frames and the will ajusttweening system the optics movement inbetween the keyframes.
Try that.

The Chromanator? Get with the times, there, Wes. This is called the VisionLab Studio Help forum for a reason. Chromanator has been obsolete for 5 years now. smile

Regardless, the actual advice part of your post, regarding keyframing, is spot on.

In light of mu referance to the chromanator I was led to believe that is was the engine, v-lab used to create tweening. FYI got that from a tutorial.
