No Z axis control on screen
on Jul 1, 2015 at 3:03:07 am

HELP PLEASE. I've lost the Z axis control for layers when using the mouse on screen to push layers around. I have X and Y but when i try to select the Z axis I get a small black dot behind the mouse arrow and it'll only allow the layer to move in 2D (side to side/ up and down. The only way I can move the layer in Z space is to use the layer controls in the timeline. I've looked everywhere and done a full settings and preference reset with no luck. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm using AECC.

Cheers
Ryan.

If you're using AE CC 2015, go back to the Adobe web site, install AE CC 2014 and use it instead. The newest version is just too bug-ridden for novices to cope with.

Let people who use AE to make their livings be Adobe's free beta testers. Not you. After a fashion, AE CC 2015 will be sufficiently bug-free that it almost works as advertised, but it isn't even close at the moment.
