Remember that the field guide indicates where the animation should be drawn. In the example below, all of the shaded area will appear in view at some stage of the camera movement; the unshaded area will never appear in shot and therefore does not have to be drawn on. It is advisable, however, to draw the animation to a bleed line allowing the painted eels (including the backgrounds) to extend beyond the field edges. A bleed area of approximately half a field is sufficient.
Occasionally, it is necessary for the animator to ask the cameraman to produce a pan that is on a curve or arc. In this case, it is necessary to draw on the field guide the required curved path of action of the centers of the fields. If, for example, the 4-field is moving to the 8-field on an upward curve, then the field guide and doping would appear as:
START 5 FT. CURVED PAN (AS INDICATED ON FIELD GUIDE) TO. . .
