Using After Effects 17.5.1 right now, and noticed that there is a new "feature" that turns Alt+Mouse Scroll Wheel into a camera dolly tool when your timeline has a 3D Layer.

 

Normally when you use Alt+Scroll on the Composition Panel, you zoom into the cursor position on your composition. I use this all the time while I'm working because it takes so much less time than using only your scroll wheel or the zooming keyboard shortcuts "," "."and then finding your Comp POI with the Hand Tool.

 

With this new version of After Effects, this functionality is lost once you add a 3D layer. I never have needed/wanted to use the camera dolly tool in this way. Is there a way to turn this off?

Edit > preferences > 3D: turn off the second option: Activate Alt - Left...
