Hi,

I like to do an Indiana Jones traveling scene but I am a complete Newbie so I thought the quickest way to get to where I want is to ask a question here.

 

What I have done is the following. I loaded a World Map into Motion and then draw a vector from my starting point Frankfurt to Beijing. I also animated the vector with 2 keyframes to be drawn with ongoing time. Fine so far. What I want to do now is some zooming and 3D effects. What I exactly want is this: I like to start with a view that does not show the whole map (like it is the case right now) but only a small fraction. I also like to travel with that particular fraction or even make it bigger or smaller. And second, I like to have some 3D effect like not traveling with an on top view only. What I found it is the following: I could make every groups 3D instead of 2D and then I can rotate it and zoom in as I want. I think I can somehow animate it as well. The only problem: The world map and my vectors are so big, I cannot zoom in as I want because the handles fall out of the window. I then found the camera object and wondered if this might be the solution. Can anyone help me out? How to do this best?

 

Cheers

Phil
