Hi folks,
I have a few 3D composition and I want to do a camera path around them.
But only the active camera is working. The others views doesn't work, I don't see the camera so it'll be really difficult for me to create a path.
Any help please ?

Hi Boris252497974j9b,

 

Thanks for writing in.

In the Composition panel, enable Toggle Mask and Shape Path Visibility. For the camera wireframe, go to View > View Options > choose On or When Selected under the Camera Wireframes dropdown.

Let us know how if it helps.

 

Thanks,

Nishu

When you have a 3D layer in a nested composition (Pre-comp) and Collapse Transformations is turned on. You cannot see the layer controls or move anything in the pre-comp using the Active Camera or isometric views (left, right, top, bottom, front, back, or Custom 1, 2, or 3). You have to open the nested comp to move the layers. 

 

If Camera Wireframes are not set to be visible all the time, you can't see the camera in the other views unless you have it selected. 

 

Your screenshot does not give us any information about the selected layer's position because that layer has been moved in the nested comp. 

 

In the future, please embed your screenshots instead of uploading them so we can see them. Just drag them to the reply field, copy and paste the file to the reply field, or use the Toolbar. Find your problem layer, press 'uu' to show all modified properties, and we can better understand your problem.
