Rapid increase in the quality of 3D content coupled with
the evolution of hardware rendering techniques urges the development
of camera control systems that enable the application of aesthetic rules
and conventions from visual media such as film and television. One of
the most important problems in cinematography is that of composition,
the precise placement of elements in shot. Researchers already considered
this problem, but mainly focused on basic compositional properties
like size and framing. In this paper, we present a camera system that
automatically configures the camera in order to satisfy advanced compositional
rules. We have selected a number of those rules and specified rating
functions for them, then using optimisation we find the best possible
camera configuration. Finally, for better results, we use image processing
methods to rate the satisfaction of rules in shot.
