    AE 3D axis orientation is different from 3D programs?

      Here is something that has been bothering me forever:

       

      Is the AE x y z coordinate system aligned differently from 3D programs such as Blender or am I just stupid?

       

      In blender, the blue Z-arrow points up (vertically) in the front view. But in AE it's the green Y arrow that is pointing up.

       

      I really thought these were agreed upon standards (after all coordinate systems have existed way before any computer programs),  so it might be that I'm missing something here. Are the coordinate systems really different between AE and other 3D applications (like Blender)?

       

      Thank you!
