Hi. I am doing a movie at the moment through the sims 3 and i have watched
other people's movies on youtube and machinima, and i don't know how they do those effective angles like the camera going upwards or the camera tilting slightly to the left or right etc. I really want to know how to do effective camera angles, can someone please tell me how?

Press TAB, then "Z" and "X" to zoom in and out and "Q" and "E" to move the camera up or down.

When you're in camera mode (TAB) press ctrl+5 on the normal keyboard(no numeric) to save an camera lock.
Then find the next place (the camera from 5 will go to the 6 etc.) and press ctrl+ 6.
Now if you press 5 or 6 the camera will move from point to point,each number is one point.
I don't how to explain that,also I'm not English.
I hope you understand.
