I'm working with 3D layers, so also with Z depth. I'm keyframing the animation, but every time I want to put in the distance by right clicking on the Z depth it is back at px. It would be nice if it could stay on mm, because I'm working with real life sizes and measures. That way I could just put the distance in the timeline instead of going into the menu every time.
I can't find it in the settings. Am I overlooking something?

Exactly how are you getting MM to start? As far as I know AE works in pixels.

I click on mouse right button on the figures for Z depth for instance. then I get "edit value..." and than I can choose between Units: Pixels, Inches, MM, %. Once I've choosen milimeter that works, but next time it's back to px again.

You are correct, I did not know that functionality was there. I would suggest you bring this post and questions to the expressions forum and see if they have a way of using that MM data/or displaying it for you.

Oke, I considered changing the units type as basic, but I will post this question there also.
thanks

I have checked on CS6 and CS3 version that If I change it to MM once, it will remain in that only for the next time.

On which version you are working? Try installing the updates.

I use CS6. once it has been changed to mm you can go back in this layers settings and it will still be mm, but what you see in the comp in the position keyframes they still are in px, so you still have to go into the actual keyframe setting bij rightclicking and Edit value...; it would be nice to be able to change the distance / position in the timeline.
