Follow these simple steps to get your first result within minutes: 

Step 1: Insert keyframes 

  • First, position the camera and click Animate > Insert keyframe (shortcut: I) to define the start of the video.
  • Next, drag the red timeline indicator a few seconds to the right, move the camera and insert a new keyframe.
  • Optionally, repeat the second task as many times as you like. 

Step 2: Preview & render video 

  • Drag the timeline indicator to the start of the timeline and click  (shortcut: space) to preview the video.
  • To slow down the camera movement, move keyframes apart; to speed it up, move them closer to each other. 
  • When you are done, drag the timeline indicator back to the beginning and press Export to launch the Render Video window.
  • To export the video, stick with the default presets and press Render
