  • Low quality when flying through a map using the 3D Camera

    So I have had this problem for a looong time now and Im starting to get really tired of this.

    So I have a 4K composition and the image I want to use is a 5K JPEG image. Its a map of Europe. What my goal is, is to fly so I can keep Scandinavian in the photo and also fly quite low.

    Problem here is that the quality gets kinda bad and it gets blurry. I know why, because the camera is like a zoom.

    But I heard you can use multiple layers of maps, but Im not sure how to do it. Like a trick to make it work better.

    Anyone know a good solution to keep quality at best when doing these sorts of shoots with the camera?

    Take the image and scale up to your target size of choice (HD or 4K?_).

    If the image starts to get blurry then part of the problem is the size of the original image.

    I’ve done this before but used Vector maps.

    You can scale them as high as you can to a degree.

    If you are using a 3D camera then you need to export a super high res version.

    You can use lower-res proxies if need be but most computers these days can do super high res.
