Default Camera help

What is the way animate which camera you are looking through? I want it so when i go and render, it will automaticly switch camera views after it hits a certain key, like one looking and the face of my character, then switching the view to a different camera so its looking above him.

you will need to be good at MEL.., (unless you find someone has written a script for it) and run the command from the 'run' window in a PC, or 'command or console window' i think in a mac????

its difficult but near impossible if you do not understand MEL.

usually one renders out the different camera angles and renders the image sequance in a compositing app like 'videoMach' and complies them together in their editing software.., you have editing software i hope.., such as 'windows movie maker???' or 'I movie'

exactly, by scripting it all you will achieve is the same thing as doing 2 renders. I suggest the 2 renders approach
