The camera zoom tool used to take you forwards and backwards in the exact direction the camera was facing... the updated camera tool does not do this [video attached]... the point centred in the crosshairs used to be the direction the camera zoom would move, now it skews seemingly randomly, perhaps r
I'd be extremely grateful if somebody can show me how to fix this as it's incredibly inconvenient
here you go, sir. there's a little white cross which seems to indicate the direction of the zoom, though it seems to choose its position at random, at the start of the zoom and also changes position during the zoom?
If I click and drag right over the central crosshair of the shot it will follow that path for a moment then skew off the further I drag
It looks like you have a one node camera and it is not pointed directly at the layer. Get the camera pointed the right way and try the tool again. Better yet, change the camera to a 2 node camera so you can easily control where it is pointed. I don't see any bug. Everything looks perfectly normal and expected.
