Hi!

I have used an expresion line to acces the active camera heavily(below). I you would like to use a specific camera instead of the active one. How would you go about that? thanks


thisComp.activeCamera.toWorld

This post should be in the expressions forum - better chances to get a quick answer.

Cameras work just like layers.

Instead of using thisComp.activeCamera, you can pick-whip another camera layer, or directly enter something like this:

thisComp.layer("Camera 2")

If you refer to the camera more than once in your expresion, you can clean up your code a bit as follows:

c = thisComp.layer("Camera 2");
c.toWorld([0,0,0]);
