Hey so I'm pretty new to AAE, and I really need some help fixing a problem I've suddenly started having. While making a video, I wanted to put in some text, but I wanted it to look like it was lying on the floor, so I made the text layer 3D. As soon as I did that, everything around the text went black (color of the composition).
This is the first time I've ever had any problems with 3D text layers, as I have used them before, and they worked perfectly fine. Does anyone have any idea on what may be wrong?
Make sure that you have Active Camera selected in the Comp window.
What Rick said. And also consider that e.g. layer styles break 3D rendering and pre-composing your text may be required before using it as a 3D layer...
Wow, sure enough I had the camera on "front view". Man do I feel stupid. Thanks for the help!
