Motion Control Script
Hi, I have an idea for a very useful script for all fumefx users (and more), maybe anybody can write it.
At the moment I have a shot with falling / rotating elements and a camera rotating and moving around the falling object. They fall from clouds to ground, so it is a really huge distance and there is no chance to make such a big fume container. Now the idea is a script, in which I can select the moving object and the camera, and the tool should be able to analyze the motion of both, bake it or whatever and set the moving object to one fix point, still let it rotate, use all sub object animations (for characters, for example) AND calculate a new camera animation, which results in visual the same way then when they were falling. It is like a motion control system from starwars: The object was fixed, the camera did some complex movements and the result looks like the camera was still or moving AND the fighter was flying. With such a script we coult build our container around the fixed object, add some wind from the main movement direction and do a highres simulation with great results. Any ideas for solving this ?
