    first I must say ProAnimator FX must be the best thing that have happened to Motion =D

    So my problem is that if I use offline camera in Pro Animator and click okay and go back to Motion I’ll lost my original camera. That have happened to me couple of times and maybe I’ll learn to avoid it but I thing it shouldn’t be that way.

    Second little thing is that if I first turn on “Use 3D Camera from Motion” and then turn it off I can’t see anything before I go back to Pro Animator and click okay and go back to Motion.

    Anyway I haven’t used Zaxwerks products earlier and I must say ProAnimator is much much better product than what I expected.

    HI Tapio,

    Glad to hear you dig our new FxPlug version of ProAnimator!

    These are good reports. I’ll test them to see if they happen to us too. Thanks for reporting them.

    Okay it seems to be that I won’t lost my original camera if I first make camera track before turning offline camera on and going back to Motion. Even though it’s still rendering through offline camera in Motion.

    One another question is where all my objects go inside ProAnimator when I turn 3d camera from motion on? Because I can’t see or find any objects inside ProAnimator when it’s turned on in Motion. So I must first turn it off and then go back to ProAnimator.

    HI Tapio,

    You are not supposed to have to create a camera to use the Offline camera. So this will need to be fixed. Please send us a project file showing how objects disappear. It may be that the Motion camera is just looking in the other direction, or that something else is going on. Having a project showing the problem will help us figure it out.
