Got to say I was pulling out what little hair I have left. Followed the video several times to make sure I was making all the right moves. Just could not get the camera to create keypoints. In the end, with camera selected, I went to the panel to the left opened the animation tab and manually inserted the start keyframe. From there on in everything worked as it should.
Thanks for the idea. That did not work for me, however when I was in that tab I clicked on the bake button, then the animate icon appeared underneath the camera and then everything worked. It was not obvious from the lecture, or at least to me that each object has hits own animation that can be controlled with its own set of keyframes. For some reason the camera did not have that animation untill I clicked on bake.
