Chaz SutherlandCamera movement not rendering
by on Mar 25, 2012 at 3:09:02 pm

I have a project where the basic premise is to have a still photo dissolve into a video back-plate of picture on a wall. Here's what I did:
--Added a camera to my scene.
--Dropped in an image and pushed it away in Z, then scaled it to fill the screen.
--Dropped in a video back-plate. This video has a practical camera pulling back on a dolly, so...
--I pushed the AE camera forward to get a close up of the still image.
--Moved the AE camera backward to match the one in the principal photography.
--Adjusted the opacity to dissolve between the two plates.
--Added some particles [Trapcode Form] for some parallaxing.

Everything looks great when I scrub my timeline, but the problem is when I go to render. The AE camera doesn't move at all. The still image does dissolve to the video bac-kplate but that's it. None of the parallax is happening. Does anybody know what's happening?
I would gladly post a video but my client doesn't want it exposed yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
