This is a beginners tutorial Blender 3D 2.73 - In this tutorial we will animate our camera and text.
In this tutorial I will guide you through animating the text and the camera to add some wow factor to your video intro. We will use camera tracking, object rotation, object scaling, object positioning, key framing and the timeline to complete this task. We will also set blender to start rendering out still images for each frame animation sequence. Once completed we will be able to move on to the next tutorial where will create a final video rendered animation.
