Automatic camera path


Lately we have been working on major improvements for camera movement.

As you may already know, by default the camera will pass through walls to reach its destination. It works alright, but we wished we had more pleasant transitions between views.

We decided to create an automatically generated camera path, so the camera can navigate obstacles on its own. For any sharp corners the camera will slow down accordingly, and speed up when traversing straight paths.

The function should work best in interior scenes. It is enabled by default for new scenes, and for existing scenes you can enable it in the Camera tab using the “auto path” checkbox.

Give the auto path a try and let us know how it works for your scenes!


I tried it on a bigger exterior scene where the cameras are arranged around a multi-family house. And it works nicely in the scene. The movement could sometimes be a bit smoother, but overall it is a great addition.
