  • Reduce scale of camera shake applied to null

    Posted by David Sandberg on November 23, 2022 at 2:05 pm

    I’ve tracked some footage of camera shake to a null object, is there any way to reduce the scale of the camera shake within the null? I like how the camera shake looks, it’s just too much right now. Appreciate any help.

    What I’d try is an expression on the Null’s position, something like:


    This takes the value of the keyframe and divides it by two. The issue with this approach is that if the starting position is 960 (and the next frame is 970), then the new position will be 480 (and 485). To combat this, create a second null object and have the parented to the first.
