Camera tab

There are the following tabs at the top right of the screen: Scene, Camera and Light.
Let’s choose a Camera tab. Picture below:

A list of default camera shots for the studio will be displayed. These shots (their number and type) have been defined by the designer of the studio.
If you choose Camera 1 shot, its view will be visible on the screen. You can change this shot by setting the camera differently with mouse buttons in the Camera mode. Remember that this way you will not be able to change in the editor the shots currently loaded to the production module.
These shots will be loaded into V/C groups only after reloading the studio project file to production. When you finish the editing, you can save such altered project as a new studio under a new name.

The studio file should be saved under a different name, because if you try to save it under the same name, the system will warn you with a message concerning an attempt to overwrite the file.

If you decide to overwrite the file and the given file is write protected, you’ll get a message, as shown below.

If you want also your new file protected against overwriting (changing), check the appropriate option during the process of creating this new file – saving it.

You can also change the number of the new studio’s default shots by: adding a new shot, cloning a chosen shot, deleting some of the shots or changing their name – with Add, Clone, Remove and Rename functions
The picture below – five new shots were added to the four shots created by a graphic designer.

You can define up to 15 new default camera shots. They will be immediately visible in the Camera setup in the V/C 1 to V/C 4 after loading a new studio to production – exactly the same for each virtual cameraman.
It is very useful and therefore, in addition to the Camera tab, you also have a possibility to switch between the default camera shots (Camera_1 to Camera_4) at the top of the screen, next to the View Perspective icon. See the picture below.

This allows you to switch between the shots while working in the Scene or the Light tab, and to monitor on a regular basis how the changes introduced in one camera view look like in another one . See the picture below
For the ease of use, there is also a possibility to work with objects in the Camera tab – you just have to switch to the OBJECT mode with your mouse. However, it’s a SCENE tab which was especially designed for this purpose and so it has more options for editing the objects.
