rework the whole 3d space
Working in the 3d space of AFX is such a pain! Often I try to avoid it or look for workarounds(someimtes using C4d to set up cameras and lights to than pass it over to AFX just to not have to navigate it in AFX)
It is not easy to navigate the 3d space as it doesn't use industry standart shortcuts to start with.
In addition it is so hard to grab these little 3d widget handles. I constantly select another layer when I try to move the one I focus on. If we would have the option to restrict the movement of a layer (to XY, YZ or XZ a standart in all the 3d apps) it would be so much easier to move a layer.
Than there is the constant problem with the different 3d spaces:
1. Please unify the 3d space so that also Plug in Developers can use it and not have to set up there "own 3d space" which would make it so much easier to have different Plug ins interact with one another.
It is probably a huge task to develop but for me it would make so much sense in a long therm.
2. To have the 0,0,0 Point in the upper left doesn't make sense anymore in my eyes. This would exchanging data with 3d apps a lot more streamlined (even though all the scripts and plug ins seem to deal with the offset)
I totally agree. It's such a pain in the ... to work in 3d in AE. Guys wake up it's 2018!
