I'm having a problem with the 3D functions in my recent project. (note: only in this particular project!)
When putting the 3D tick on any layer, all the other layers in the composition just turn invisible and the background is set to black. However, the little eye which handles the visibility of a layer is still set to visible.
In addition, the X and Y Rotation has lost it's functionality. The object is not rotated but more or less compressed, which looks like a bad imitation of a 3D rotation. I'll better show you.
Should be well described. Hope someone knows what happened there, I probably just accidentily hit some shortcut that changed all this stuff, but I obviously don't know.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Add a camera to your composition. Switch the viewer to "Active Camera" instead of "Front".
The "Front" view is orthographic - it does not show perspective. Use it for alignment of layers but not for final design decisions.
You can only render output from the Active Camera view, so it's best to use it whenever possible.
Aw, thanks alot for the advice! It was in fact the Front view that caused those issues. I must have accidentily changed the views there, thank you.
