Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Create complex multiple-camera scenes! Render to MP4 and Animated gif!

Camera Director is a Daz plugin that combines on-set camera direction with the editing room.

After your scene is created and animated, set up a camera for each shot you envision to tell the story. Set your focal length, distance, etc.

Now create your main camera - the one that tells your story. Use Camera Director to tell this camera which shot to use when the time is right. Applying your choices lets you view your story from all the shots and angles the audience will see.

Camera Director also extends the rendering monitoring of Daz Studio.

Use the Render option to start a render of the frames in the current timeline. Camera Director will track render stats and let you know how long the render will likely take. Also, for a viewport render, Camera Director lets you know which frame is being rendered and includes a cancel button.

Camera Director includes a connection to FFmpeg for rendering your frames to an MP4 movie with sound or animated gif!

Simply select MP4 and after rendering, Camera Director will send your frames and audio file, if there is one assigned, to FFmpeg to create an MP4 file.

Select Animated Gif and Camera Director will send your frames to FFmpeg for a high-quality gif.

The frame rate will match your timeline frame rate, size and quality are chosen in the Render Settings panel.

For 64-bit Windows systems only.
