Subject: Swapping camera position to a new camera?
Rather than having 10 scene files with cameras in each in a different position I want to have 1 scene with 1 camera keyframed in 10 positions over 10 frames.
The problem is, is how do I get the camera positions from Camera B to Camera A without manually typing in coordinates?
Is there a way?
you can copy the coordinate by right clicking on them and then paste them to the new camera.
Or, depending on Your aim/situation, You can Right-Click -> Animation -> Copy track and then Right-Click -> Animation -> Paste track on the other object.
The trick is which coordinates are You going to transfer, and those are the highlighted one when You click on them.
E.g. click on X and it is the only one affected, click on P and X, Y and Z are affected, now Ctrl+click and You can select the S and R vectors too!
The selection works on the target too, so make sure the same used. I Ctrl+Right Click so the selection is not lost.
PS: apparently (just a guess) the values are stored as ordered multiplet: if I copy the 3 vectors and paste on Y then the 1st value, i.e. the original X, is used.
PS: tested in R14, not sure on previous versions.
I hope it helps.
Ah, too bad... I hope one of the other suggestions will work for you.
By the way, I think the plugin whose name Anders couldn't remember was Scooby Cam Tools by C4D Jack. Just in case you want to have a look at it:
