New app records camera moves from your iPhone
The 3D Ninja has just relased an iPhone app for creating handheld camera animations in Maya.
CameraMan for Maya uses the phone’s in-built motion sensor to record rotation on three spatial axes – ideal for simulating those cinema verite shakeycam shots.
According to the product blog: “The app uses the Gyroscope found in the iPhone 4 to control the X,Y and Z rotations of the 3D camera. It also allows you to adjust the camera’s focal length using a slider, record animation and provides Maya timeline playback controls from the iPhone.”
