I´m currently putting together a video with animation. The project is comprised of many short video clips (layered as precomps in the main comp - the clips used green screen which had to be keyed out), and I want to use the camera tool to zoom in and out on the characters in the video. I had no problem doing this with the first two clips in the timeline, and have the camera zooming and panning exactly as it should, but it has stopped working with the next two clips in the sequence. I cannot get it to zoom in or out, move from side to side or do anything. It creates a keyframe for point of interest and position in the camera layer when I click and drag on the image, but nothing actually happens - no zoom and no movement. I have 3D selected on all my layers, and treated the clips in exactly the same way as the first two. I tried restarting the computer and nothing. I´m completely stumped! If anyone has any ideas I´d be extremely grateful to hear them! Thanks!
