AAE 2020, have several 3D .mov clips in a composition, with a 2d JPG background, with a 1 node camera added...
1. When setting a keyframe on camera timeline, then move the head to a different time to set a new keyframe, the values do not change automatically to reflect any change in any of the x,y,x properties.
2. If I manually set a keyframe at the beginning, 0 time, of the video clip, move to a later position of the timeline, manually create a second keyframe, the first keyframe then reverts to the value of the new keyframe.
3. The keyframe values are set to Linear.
4. To enhance the quality of the video, I have added Detail Preserving scale and Unsharpen effects to each of the 4 individual .mov files in the composition box
Previous projects worked just fine, keyframe values automatically changed as I moved/altered camera position and orientation using mouse to slide video over, zoom in on someone, swing position around, etc.
I have auto keyframe enabled
Please verify your workflow. Animating a camera should follow these steps.
Follow these steps, and you will have keyframes (the little diamond shape things) in the timeline, and the camera will change position between the keyframes.
Only the Active Camera view will render. That is the only Comp View you can use to judge camera position and movement.
Thanks... exactly what I do... move camera timeline to 1st position, expand out positon and orientation values... when I manually change any of those values, camera POV changes appropriately and a KeyFrame is created... move to second position on timeline, change values again to something different, new KeyFrame created fine
The issue is that before, on previous projects, instead of manually inputing data to Position or Orientation, I could actually move and manipulate the image via mouse in the Preview window and those values would change accordingly.
That's not happening at all.
If create a KeyFrame somewhere on the timeline, move to a new position, zoom in to the clip with mouse, nothing changes, new KeyFrame exactly like the earlier one.
Are you working on the Active Camera? Be sure not to have any of the custom views actives cause this can cause exactly that problem.
Am working in Active Camera... only view open... have worked around issue OK by moving to point on timeline, using Position only, slide either X,Y,Z values as needed to zoom, move around,etc. and it is working fine now... just don't under stand why moving preview clip with mouse not effecting the Position parameters automatically any more
Thanks for the reply
