Active Camera View - Walkthrough to adjust Keyframe

Question

Active Camera View - Walkthrough to adjust Keyframe

 

Is there a step missing in this process?  Attempting to adjust the Keyframe View / Camera View(s), in an Animation Path, to Smooth out the Fly Freely final movie. Is there a missing step that saves the adjustments made with the Walkthrough Tool, while in the Activate Camera View?

 

      ...  VW / RW HELP states:

 

"To change the camera’s look-to point from an active camera view:

1.      If the camera view is not already active, select the animation path and click Activate Camera View in the Object Info palette.

A first-person camera view displays, and the animation path object is not visible in that view pane. The Walkthrough tool in Look Around mode becomes active.

2.      Use the Walkthrough tool to change the camera’s active view (see Looking around a model). The camera on the animation path changes direction in real time, and the look-to point reflects the active camera view."

 

Please and Thank You ...  Please see the attached.

 

Starting in the Top / Plan View

Zoom: Fit to Page Area

Wireframe Rendering

Select the Animation Path by clicking on it with the cursor.

Select the desired Keyframe (Camera View) to edit in the Object Info Pallet

Select, Activate Camera View, in the Object Info Pallet

Walkthrough Tool becomes active

Adjust Camera View (Keyframe View) as desired with Walkthrough Tool.

Select the next Keyframe (Camera View) to edit in the Object Info Pallet

Select, Activate Camera View, in the Object Info Pallet

Walkthrough Tool becomes active

Adjust Camera View (Keyframe View) as desired with Walkthrough Tool.

Back up to the previous Keyframe (Camera View) in the Object Info Pallet

Select, Activate Camera View, in the Object Info Pallet

Walkthrough Tool becomes active

 

Previous adjustments with the Walkthrough Tool are no longer there, Keyframe View / Camera View has reverted to the initial location.

 

What am I missing ? - Thanks - Peter

Continuing to have buggy issues with 2020 Fly Freely Animation - Adjusting the Keyframe / Camera Look-To Point

 

Need to adjusting the Look-to Point accurately / easily. Assume that the "snaps" in VW / RW would work.

Adjusting with the WALKTHRU tool is good, but has issues. Able to get a good animation, desire is for a great one.

Restarting the software and the application helps - but does NOT eliminate this repeating issue.

 

Suggestions are appreciated.

                     " ...if it repeats often enough to record it as a movie, you would think it is a problem?"

 

Please see the attached - Peter
