Tip
General
There is a default preset in “User” category. You can use it to reset addon panel’s setting.
When selecting a category, there is no default preset selected for. You need to select one.
Preset data is load onto addon’s UI panel at the moment you selected it.

Choose a preset similar to the shot you want, then move it manually, can achieve the shot you need most efficiently. Only adjust settings on addon panel when you need your own preset.

Create thumbnail image
If a preset doesn’t have a thumbnail image, addon will use a default image. So you actually don’t have to create a thumbnail image.
When loading a preset with “Load” button, you can pick a thumbnail image to import the preset.

Camera System
This addon creates a camera system with: a Camera, a Target, a Revolve Sun, and a Handler for the whole system.

Camera: you can move or rotate it as you want

Revolve Sun: rotate it, camera will rotate around it.

Empty Target: If “Look at target” is checked and Target Type is set to “Empty” on addon panel, camera will always look at this empty target.

This is very useful, when you want to track a moving object which keeps shaking, but you still want to keep your camera stable.
Handler: Empty parent for the whole system. So you can adjust camera motion as a whole.

Setting
Position and Rotation
A generated camera motion can have 3 key frames:

Start frame
Those vector properties on addon panel are not coordinates and final angles. They are distance and rotation angles about how much you want to move or rotate it based on default transform.

End frame: Can be set after checking “Has Motion”.
Those vector properties on addon panel are not coordinates and final angles. They are distance and rotation angles about how much you want to move or rotate it based on start frame.
