Hey, I decided to make a simple tutorial for people to know how to use the camera.
Please bear in mind that I use noclip to get proper angles, I recommend it to you.
First, you start out by doing a pose (obviously). I’ll pose a simple soldier here.
(don’t mind the phys gun error, I deleted a file by mistake and had that bug for a week now.)
Next, select your camera.
This is how the pose will look:
Notice how much empty space is around the soldier, and there is not much focus on him.
To make the angle of the picture look better, hold on mouse2 and push your mouse forward while in Gmod, you move backwards. You will notice that the camera zooms in and makes the soldier of the picture seem “larger” and more focused on.
Once you are happy with it, you can move upwards or downwards or to the left or right to see if you can get better angles.
This is how far I was from the soldier;
After all the angle stuff, you can add in several post-processing effects like Super DOF. Access the Q menu and look under the “Post-processing” tab as shown here:
I can’t get a shot of the little menu that shows up when you activate the Super DOF, so don’t forget to play with the sliders and make sure that the thing you do not want blur is focused on properly, and remember to press “Render”.
Without Rendered DOF, the picture looks like this:
This is the final result of my picture (with Rendered DOF)
I hope I did it right :ohdear:
Oh yes, do this as well!
