    Help i’m cracking up…
    I have a camera that rotates around a centre point as if it was on a tripod. I’ve keyframed the y-rotation to pan around the scene but i also want to tilt the camera up and down, if i change the x-rotation it causes the camera to twist, is the a way to always keep the camera view horizontal to the scene.
    Thanks.

    Try keyframing the y rotation and the x ORIENTATION instead.
    If that doesn’t work, parent it to 2 nulls in the exact same spot.

    Null 1 Y Rotation keyframed
    Null 2 X Rotation keyframed (parented to Null 1)
    Camera (parented to Null 2)

    Cool thanks, the second method worked.
