2D Camera confusing setting

Post by HandcraftedMedia » Thu Feb 13, 2020 9:43 pm

Hey there!

I am working with the 2D Camera and I have a long "2d parallax" title shot I am working on. It starts far up and ends in the center on the final title. I could not figure out why in the world my final (last keyframe) position kept changing when I added keyframes before it. When investigating I realized there is a "valueattime(0)" component in the calculation. I totally understand the purpose, however, I feel like there should be an option to turn that on and off or a hint to it in the documentation to make it a little less confusing! Just a thought! Tanks!
