Im never good enough to create really nice videos, I have done some basic ones... but yes you can position and target a camera with sketches. Here's an example of just aiming at the origin and following an arc. You can specify the percent along the path
Alternately I just use a sketch point and drive it along the path myself.

Is there a way to make a 3D sketch and have it follow that 3D sketch?
Yes you can add a 3d sketch and use that as path. Here is one quick video SolidWorks Walk-Through Animation Tutorial
I'm trying to find a way to have it display some of the default views, perhaps have it transition between one view and the other.
You can also use the motion manager wizard to create a 360° rotation video also.
You can also save the file as eDrawings and use the animate tool of eDrawings which would display all views one by one with a nice transition from one to another..
Heh, I was thinking of eDrawings when I wrote this and looked for something similar in SolidWorks but to no avail... Thanks for the tips guys, I'll have a look at it and if I can I'll try and give a sneak peak to some.
