I'm having trouble with a Background layer. It is set as a generated ramp and is the bottom layer in my project. When I change from camera view to Custom View 1 it diapers on me unless I make it a 3d layer. But when I do that it becomes a square box behind all my layers in 3d space. I want it to face the camera no matter the angle of view. I hope that makes sense. I'm using CS4 thanks

Always, always make a new camera.
Never use custom view except for checking layout.

Make a new camera, move it into place, make the BG layer 2D, then get back to us.

"Diapers"? You mean "disappears", right? Cute. :) We should use that from now on.
