Hi

Is there a way to switch the auto-orient on and off during an animation?

I haven't used it before but based on the description it seems like this script might do the trick.

Thanks for the tip, not quite sure if this is what I'm after but looks handy anyways...

you can use the lookAt() expression to make a 3d orient a layer towards another 3d layer (essentially what orient to camera does, but it would give you more control).

here's a simple expression for the orientation property:

target = thisComp.layer("Camera 1"); // set this to your camera
t = 5; // this is the point in time where you want it to stop looking at the camera, value in seconds.

if (time < t){
lookAt(target.position, position);
}else{
value;
}
