Creating the Vertigo/Jaws Shot in DAZ Studio – Part 1

In this episode I’ll show you how to create a Dolly Zoom animation in DAZ Studio. That’s a camera trick made famous with Alfred Hitchcock’s movie VERTIGO, hence it’s often called a Vertigo Shot or Jaws Shot (because Steven Spielberg has used it for great effect in Jaws).

In this part I’ll explain how the effect is created, setup our scene and frame up the keyframes of our animation. In Part 2 I’ll get into setting lights, animating the camera’s depth of field and rendering out the animation.
