Working in 3D animatics has a number of benefits, one of the greatest being fluid, immersive camera movements which are not attainable through traditional 2D animatics. These cinematic camera techniques bring your audience closer to the action, making them feel part of your story.


A pan movement that turns the camera 180º often used as a transition.

Freeze frames halt the movement within the video. They essentially convert the moving picture into a still photography shot for a given period of time.

Tracking shot involves the physical movement of the camera, often following a subject through a scene for an extended amount of time.

A one shot is several scenes that are shown using one, continuous shot, without any cut or interruption.

A point of view shot is a film angle that shows what a character is looking at in the first person. In other words, the camera acts as the eyes of a character.

The split-screen composition technique allows you to display multiple camera angles simultaneously in a single frame. This technique is particularly effective in interviews or dialogue-driven scenes, where you can visually emphasize the interactions between two or more individuals

Time-lapse is a technique in which the frequency at which frames are captured is much lower than the frequency used to view the sequence. When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing.
