After watching a recent tutorial from Jerzy Drozda Jr over at on simple camera rigging, hypoly writes a script that performed this process with just one click. The script will do the following:

* Make a new camera
* Makes a series of Nulls and parents them to a Control Null
* Writes the required expressions needed for the camera and Nulls
* Allow the user to control the camera via the Control Null

Using the Simplecamerarig Script with Videocopilots Sure Target 2? It involves running the script first and then applying Suretarget 2 to the ControlNull. All you have to do then is parent the camera back to the CamBank Null and your set.
