I have a simple 3D text layer. I set up a camera layer and placed it above the text layer in the timeline. I then used the camera orbit tool to set my two keyframes. I just want the camera to track slowly around the text about 60 degrees.
The problem I'm having is: In between the camera's two keyframes, it wants to zoom in and then zoom back out. This only happens right in the middle of the two keyframes. The camera starts out fine, starts to track, then zooms in, zooms back out, and then ends exactly where it should.
Does anybody know what I am doing wrong? This is driving me crazy.

Yes, you are not adjusting the handles and creating a linear path. Also read this: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/422875?tstart=0 You are trying to make things a bit too simple, so I strongly recommend you read the help and study additional tutorials. Without the basics, you will forever get stuck on such simple things.
Thanks. I will give that a whirl.
And you are right, I am definitely trying to make things too simple. I started out using After Effects 1 and haven't used it since it After Effects 3. Man, it has changed A LOT since then. I feel like a horse flying a helicopter. "He'll never get that thing off the ground!"
