I know we hardly do any camera movements for our assignments at Takshaa, coz if we dont get it right it looks crappy... and as Manu Sir told us once during the class that camera movement is an Art in itself which takes quite a lot of time learn. So why is it so difficult to move the camera in CG... I think simply because it floats... doesn't have a solid ground... and the camera movements we see in the movies are so great simply because the camera is stacked on a trolley or crane or whatever the most modern equipment they use to have a precise control over the movement. Also over the period of time our eyes have accustomed to smooth camera moves. (thanks to all the movies we see). So for quite some time now i have been toying with this camera rig below and its been working fine for me, so far. But ya... this can be improved i guess... so all you monsters do let me know what are ur thoughts and please do comment if this rig can be improved.
