Thanks for your reply – appreciated. The cam layer is physically on top of the layer – and yes, both layers have 3D checked. Thanks – – D

Not sure if I understand the question fully. But do both layers have the 3D button checked or unchecked? When you say a layer has a camera on top of it, do you mean in your timeline (which shouldn’t matter), or physically on top of the layer in the comp window?

The uppermost camera layer is always the active camera. Any 3D layers in the timeline, above and below the camera in the timeline, will be affected by the camera. If you don’t want a specific layer to be affected, switch off 3D for the layer. If you still need 3D capabilities (like rotations) for the layer, you’ll need to precompose the 3D layer so that the precomp is 2D.

Hi – can’t find this in help – so turning here . . . I have a layer that’s fading in on top of another. This top fading n layer has a camera on top of it – and it’s naturally then skewing the bottom layer that’s fading out. How do you keep this top camera from skewing the fading out layer?
Thanks v. much – appreciated.

Precomp the Camera layer with the layers you want skewed.

how do you “show” the default camera – so you can tweak it?

To show the default camera, go to Layer> New > Camera
