Using Cinepack to move cameras in Blender with iRender

As we all know that camera is a tool used to render Blender images. It defines which portion of a scene is visible in the rendered image. In Blender, you may move the camera in a variety of ways. Therefore, in today’s Blog post, iRender will show you how to use Cinepack to move cameras in Blender.

What is Cinepack?

A big collection of professionally produced camera movements that are entirely customizable and pre-animated for Blender. It was created to improve production quality and reduce time.

Besides, camera motions that are frequently used in Hollywood films, motion graphics, commercials, and VFX shots can be easily imported into your scene. Also, these items were created by a cinematographer with more than ten years of expertise in the film industry. You’ll be perplexed as to how you ever survived without CinePack!

Why should we use Cinepack in Blender?

  • Increase production values for any project without any prior experience needed in animation, keyframing or camerawork.
  • Save valuable time on your Blender project!
  • Improve your setting easily.
  • Cinepack takes care of everything; no need to set up cameras, parent objects, animate movements.

Because every camera move is customisable so you can change them in any way to suit your needs. These camera movements can be used as a base for more complicated tasks. In fact, all moves are instantaneously visible as previews. Last but not least, both CYCLES and EEVEE compatible!

First, you need to go to Blender Market and download the Cinepack addon. Make sure you have the correct version of the addon for your version of Blender. Ensure that the add-on you have is compatible with the Blender version you are using.

Second, in Blender, go to the “Edit” menu and select “Preferences.” In the “Preferences” window, go to the “Add-ons” tab.

Then, you click on the “Install” button, and navigate to the directory where you downloaded the Cinepack Addon. Select the file and click on the “Open” button to install it. After installing the add-on, find “Cinepack” under the “Add-ons” tab in the “Preferences” window to activate it. To enable an add-on, check the box next to its name.

You can begin using the Cinepack Addon in Blender after it has been activated. The Tools menu, the Properties panel, and the 3D Viewport will all have access to the Cinepack tools. Then, you can use the Properties panel to access the Cinepack tools.
