It took some practice, I'll tell you that much! Thanks for the compliments, I appreciate a little pat on the back for hard work. :-)
Two things with how the camera works:
#1. Just position your camera with the mouse, then drag the "camera" icon into the "Special" bar. You've probably figured this part out.
#2. There are different camera movement speeds. By right-clicking on the camera, you can disable movement (instant cut to the new view), or choose to move very slowly to this position (creating a "pan" effect).
A lot of the fancier stuff is done through camera tricks, so it's important to get some skill with the camera. Just message me if you want any more tips about the camera stuff. And if you produce anything you feel like distributing, just send it to me and I'll be more than happy to post it on my blog for you. :-)
