Ever seen one of those incredible FyreUK time lapses? Or a musical cinematic? Ever wondered how they make the camera fly around so smoothly and perfectly, even with the ability to do it extra slowly for long timelapses? Most popular cinematic/time lapse producers us the Camera Studio mod by Sushen. You can set different point using commands for the camera to fly over at different speeds. It is highly configurable, so you can set how long it will take for you to fly around the point. Around 5:00 for a normal cinematic and you can even do something like an hour or two if you’re filming a time lapse. The best thing about: it works in multiplayer; allowing you to film your friends doing whatever. Like building, roleplaying, anything.
To use the mod you need to get first get in fly mod (obviously). Type /cam p to set point one (a point is where your camera will fly over. /cam p again to set point two. Again to set point three etc, etc. When you have all your points set you can choose between a spline path, linear or circular. These depend on what the path will be like between each point. /cam sp for spline, /cam li for linear and /cam ci for circular. Now you just type /cam start [time of fly over]. You can do anything from 5 seconds to 4 hours.
The Camera Studio mod has been extremely helpful for minecraft machinima artists for quite some time. It’s an amazing mod and very simple to use. If you’re the type that likes to film a lot and upload to youtube then this is for you. Some priceless cinematics and time lapses have come from the camera studio mod in the past.
