Craft HumanizerCam is a passive camera tool. The animator attaches it to an animated object to be able to move. For best results, Craft Animations recommends that users align and then link/parent Craft HumanizerCam to a previously animated camera.

Craft HumanizerCam Details

Using Craft HumanizerCam

Warning Optimizing the scene
It's wise to optimize the scene before starting to recording the animation. The scene is optimized by decreasing the amount of polygons shown during the recording. This is achieved by hiding objects not crucial to the part of the scene that you are currently animating. Another tip is to use Craft Bounding Poly, which temporary lowers the amount of polygons for selected objects and allows for a smoother recording.

  1. Create a Craft HumanizerCam.

  1. Align HumanizerCam_HumanizerCam with an already existing camera that you want to add the Craft Humanizer effect to.

  2. Link/Parent HumanizerCam_HumanizerCam to your camera.
  3. Press Record to start the recording. You can also use Resimulate as a quicker way of creating the animation for the camera.

You can enter the configuration window of Craft HumanizerCam to change the camera parameters. If you change the settings for the camera, make sure that the time slider is at the start of the animation and then press Resimulate to recreate the animation with the new settings.

Camera Parameters

Resets the initially recorded state to the current state.

Shake Multiplier
A multiplier for all the shake values.

Yaw Shake
How much the camera shakes in its yaw rotation.

Pitch Shake
How much the camera shakes in its pitch rotation.

Roll Shake
How much the camera shakes in its roll rotation.

Damping Factor
How fast/slow the shake effects fade.

Increasing this value will increase the irregularity of the camera shakes.

Shaker Threshold
A threshold value for the camera's shake movement.

Input Property Parameters

Cam Shaker Amplitude Response Factor
A value for how fast this function will react to the input. A value of 1 yields instant reaction and a lower value will add a fade in for the reaction.

Cam Shaker Amplitude Maximum
The maximum force applied to shake the camera.
