This feature is used too little and yet it can be really useful. The Automatic Cinematography feature allows you to sit back and relax while the software takes care of “filming” your characters: taking care of selecting the camera angles and cutting between them to give you an edited movie - automatically.
We use it to quickly create a finished video: just type the dialogue and press play; and also to suggest ideas – sometimes the result may not be exactly what you want, but it can show different options, including things you might not have thought of.
Before you check the box. WAIT!
This feature works best if your characters are placed on the First and Second Positions.
When adding a character into the scene, you will notice that the “Position Task Bar” will open. When selecting First or Second, it aligns the character with the pre-set cameras in the scene. If your characters are already in the scene and your “Position Task Bar” has disappeared, don’t panic. Click on your characters’ picture and it will appear. Once your characters are on their positions, check the automatic cinematography box and enjoy the show!
