I've create an animation which has 2 compositions inside. Comp 1 is a smartphone (in portrait ) showing an app video, and comp 2 is the same but landscape. I want to angle the portrait phone slightly so it looks like the left edge is closer to me, likewise with the landscape phone but so the right edge is closer to me.
I've enabled 3d layer for the compositions, but the x and y dont render, it just seems to be the bounding boxes that move.
You probably have the collapse switch turned on:
if this is the case, either turn it off, or instead get inside the precomp and add the 3D switch for the layers inside.
more information here: Use 3D layers in After Effects especially look into the chapter named "3D layer interactions, render order, and collapsed transformations"
Oops, thanks Roei - exactly that!
Glad to help
