So: front, right side, back, left side, and everything in between. The layers have space in between them (just so you can visualize a bit better what it is that I want). This is apparently really simple to do, I'm just a total AE noob.
Thanks so much!
edit: pleaaase please please help! my deadline is really soon and i'm incredibly tired - i know, my fault, but still, help (now haha) would be HUGELY appreciated
Take a look at this thread. The key is to arrange your objects in 3D space, add a camera and then go to Layer>Camera>Add Camera Rotater. Rotate the null. Make sure that your 3D layers are NOT set to orient towards camera. That's about it. The rest is just learning how to point the camera and how to use the camera's point of interest.
