Camera Flow Pro

by Coby Randal Media in Addons


The Ultimate Tool for Smooth, Professional Camera Movements in Blender

Flies like a drone, stabilizes like a gimbal, and follows with a smooth delay with adjustable automatic procedural smooth-in and smooth-out finesse. Yes, that means a slow parent / damped motion system, enabling you to get SUPER smooth shots, FAST! Even if you're motion input is rough and turbulent. It's fun to play with, and designed to give you the smoothest and best looking camera moves with the least amount of effort. CFP is a robust, intuitive camera rig with a convenient add-on sidebar button panel specially designed to streamline complex operations. Camera Flow Pro is ready for your production. You can do it all in real time auto key recording, manual keyframes, or even set your character / vehicle as the target of Camera Flow Pro to auto follow and auto track + focus. 

Do you also need snappy speeds and some camera shake? Glitched out cuts to various camera angles? Turbulent movements? We got that too! Need to follow a path? Need perfectly seamlessly looping and highly customizable camera shake? A camera crane or track for dynamic changes in perspective that film directors have used for decades? Do you want near effortless speed ramp effects where the camera follows fast but lands incredibly slowly? Adjustably? Say hello to Camera Flow Pro. It's like a virtual camera man that helps you get the sweet shots you want, showing you exactly what you're going to get in real time.

Benefits / Uses:

  • Smooth and gorgeous camera motions, FAST!
  • What you see in live preview is what you get in the final baked to keyframes render.
  • Non-destructive workflow allows you to preview in rig, and bake a copy of the camera for render.
  • One-button tracking/aiming at objects with adjustable following speed and smoothness.
  • One-button following of objects with adjustable following speed and smoothness.
  • Seamlessly looping procedural camera shake for added visual interest.
  • Effortless delay / flow smoothing effects and dynamic experimental camera perspectives.
  • Procedural camera shake can be stretched into full motion paths with various parameters, including seamless looping.
  • One-button camera baking to keyframes for export to other software OR rendering in Blender. Bake also includes Depth of Field Empty object.

Before You Buy:

  1. Limitations:
    1. This is not a camera solver or footage tracker.
    2. It’s not a substitute for artistry; your creativity is still essential.
  2. Compatibility:
    1. Built for Blender 3.6 to 4.2+.
    2. You can save in an older version of blender and open in a newer, but not the other way around.
    3. Multiple CFP rigs can operate simultaneously in the same .blend but are not supported and not recommended.
  3. Important Notes:
    1. Camera shake is procedural, not physics-based. This has its advantages and disadvantages.
    2. Bake to keyframes before rendering to avoid errors. There's a button for that.
    3. Installation is super easy, all-in-one add-on.
