I've been struggling to try and figure out how to do this for the past few days... relatively new to After Effects, so bear with me.
Let's see if I can explain this clearly...
I'm using a plugin that creates abstract animations (Tao by Trapcode). I'm finding that when I create a camera (in After Effects) and animate a zoom-out, the layer starts to appear cut off (cropping stays as if it zoomed all the way in).
I'm trying to figure out a way to keep the animation layer from appearing cut off on all sides as the camera zooms out.
or another way to say it, is that I want the crop to stay at the edge of the frame as it zooms out, rather than zooming out with the animation.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much for taking the time to read.

3D effects must not be applied to 3D layers. They operate on static 2D layers that are merely a "window" into the effect's 3D world. None of what you describe is any issue, you are just using the effect wrongly.
