Bug Report: AE Spot Lights and Null objects
Pickwhiping a (Spot Lights) 'Point of Interest' to a 'Null' object fails to attach said value as moving the Null no longer affects the position of 'Point of Interest'.
This bug was introduced in a (CC 2020) update and continues to persist into the current version of CC 2020 and later versions of After Effects.
Thank you for reporting this issue. Would you be able to share a quick screen recording showing how you are attaching the Spot Light's Point of Interest to the Null? Linking the Point of Interest property directly to the Null layer itself would not work; you need to link to an individual property to get a usable value, such as Position. Maybe you are parenting the Spot Light to the Null?
Thanks very much for any further information,
