I am working on a motion graphics piece right now that incorporates illustrations created in Illustrator of a concert. The layers consist of a crowd, stage, lights, speakers, etc...As of right now none of the layers our pre comps. They are just the straight Illustrator files. I made them 3D layers, put in a camera, connected the camera to a null, but when I move the camera nothing changes, like the layers are not in 3D space. Also when I try to move the layers on the Z axis they do not change.
Does anyone know what may be causing this? Am I missing something?
You don't say which version of AE you are using. That might help. Also, bear in mind that unless you move and arrange your layers in 3D space, you won't see any depth. I don't know why the layers aren't moving on the Z Axis. Try going into Top view, and moving the layers on the Z axis, and see if that helps you see them move. One of the other gotchas might be that you're not in Active Camera view.
