was wondering if there's a way to calculate the angle of a 3d layer relative to the world / a camera.
i want to mimic the effect from old sprite based pseudo 3d games like doom. i want to take, say, 8 photos of an object from 8 different angles, and make the layer switch to the correct image depending on the position of the camera.
i was planning to use the auto orient feature so that the layer always faces the camera. however this doesn't report any angle information that can be picked up by an expression, as far as i can see...
once i get the values of the angle, i was simply planning to have a precomp with 8 images on different frames and use time remapping to have the layer refference the correct image.
