How can I make camera layer exclusive to one single layer, not effecting other layers ?

cause I love to have different cameras for different clips, some of them are next to each other, if I put the cameras meet each other seamlessly, plus If I use different positions for each camera, it will be super weird at the transaction, cause the depth will just jump from one to the other.

That's why I am thinking, if I can make the camera just affect each own clip, then I can have a smooth transaction, and each camera maintains each own depth.

Try precomposing the camera and layers you want together. In this way, you'd have 2 (or more) precomps, and inside each precomp would have all of the camera moves, etc.

Shift-select the layers you want and then choose Layer > PreCompose

toggle the "collapse transformations" to get different results for your precomp -- experiment a bit. Collapse Transformations is the weird looking sun-looking switch in the layer panel, next to the layer name.
