I'm playing with the effect where you turn a static image into layers in Photoshop then export into AE. I have a simple animation set up where the landscape behind the yoga woman moves. That works the way I want it to.

But when I add the logo at the end it moves upwards with the landscape. I don't have anything keyframed, though I have the 3D icon checked because I was going to do a few things with the logo (fade in and spin).

Turning off the 3D option stops the logo drift, but I want to animate it without that drift. Missing something obvious?

that means you have some keyframes on the camera, try to select the camera layer and hit (UU), and double check if you have any keyframe of expression

I definitely have keyframes on the camera: point of interest, position, and zoom are being used. But I thought these only control the layers below the camera, where the logo is above it. Is that not the case?

 

Thanks!

The camera looks at every 3D layer in a scene. Make the Logo a 2D layer and it won't move in the frame. 

 

It also helps if you reveal the modified properties in your problem layers. Selecting Multiple views also helps diagnose 3D problems.

Isolate the logo by putting it in its own pre-composition and animate away, then use that pre-comp as a 2D layer in the main comp. The typical newbie error of trying to do everything at once with as few elements as possible...
