    Create new 3D layer to match existing camera

    ZillianGrey Level 1

      Hey guys! This might be a bit of a silly question, but is there a way to automatically match a new 3D layer's position to your existing camera? I have kinetic typograpy comps all the time that involve a camera moving around from word to word. All of these word layers have to be 3D layers of course in order to be affected by the camera when it moves past them. However, every time I create a new text layer and then make it 3D, that layer pops way back to an origin point (at least that's what I assume is the reason it moves so far away), and then I have to go and drag that text layer all the way back into frame in order to show on camera in the camera's current position.

       

      My question basically is over whether there's a way to automatically take a new 3D layer and match position with the current active camera? It's not a huge deal, but it is an inconvenience, and I would love to know if there is some easy fix for it that I just don't know about.

       

      Thank you!!
