    Camera flips upside down when parenting to Null

    Mathias Möhl Level 2

      Hi everyone,

       

      if I parent a layer to a Null, I expect it to stay exactly in place, however, I just noticed this is not always the case with cameras, as you can see in this (less than 2 minutes long) video:

       

       

       

      Does anybody have an explanation for this?

       

      Steps to reproduce:

       

      1) Create a comp with

      • a camera layer
      • a 3D Null
      • some 3D text layer (just to see when the camera view changes)

       

      2) set the X-rotation of the Null to 180 degrees.

       

      3) parent and unparent the camera to the null. You will notice that the camera filps upside down when parenting it and flips back when unparenting.

       

      Best,

      Mathias
