Handheld Camera Script

For those who want to shake things up a bit

image

Introducing a new script that creates an AE camera that not only has handheld motion, but can be easily adjusted to mimic a variety of camera motion effects like running, being on a gravel road or even being intoxicated to name a few.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: 06/24/10 – CS5 NOTE: Handheld Camera is currently NOT CS5 compatible as is, but there is a fix that you can use until I finish with the version 2 (Hopefully soon. This should help in the meantime, I’m working as fast as I can.). Just click the “DOWNLOAD CS5 FIX” below for the fix. Use this file instead of the original included “HandheldCamera.xml”. Adobe had changed the way Custom Preset Effects are read in CS5.

The tutorials have been split into two major segments, “How To Install – Handheld Camera” covers the installation of this filter/script. It is very important that you view and follow this process before attempting to use the script. The other tutorial “How To Use The Script” helps you understand how the effect works and how it can be adjusted as well as some of it’s quirks you will run into.

The necessary files for this effect can be downloaded here:

Right click and “Save File As”
CS5 FIX: DOWNLOAD CS5 FIX

Mac users: DOWNLOAD MAC

Pc users: DOWNLOAD PC
