Photoshop CC 2017: 3D animation issue

If moving the camera (as opposed to the object) on a 3D layer and creating key-frames in the timeline, the camera only moves on playback after clicking on a separate layer outside of the 3D layer (e.g. a 2D layer).
If dragging the play-head along the timeline, the camera movement jerks to the new position when the play-head is released. Again clicking on a separate 2D layer resolves this.

Tested this in 3 versions and this behaviour is the same in CC2017 and CC2015.5.1 but CS6 appears to work as expected where the camera moves smoothly without having to click on a 2D layer.

Yes, I am experiencing this issue, I couldn't check it in CS6 so it's great that Dave was able to test it. His explanation is clear enough but just in case, here's a video demonstrating the problem:

Unless there's some explanation for this behavior, I hope it can be acknowledged by Adobe and (hopefully) fixed in future versions.

(Thanks Dave for your help!)

Thank you for reporting this issue.  I have reproduced this problem in house.

While this topic hasn't been tagged as "solved", I think it is. Two Photoshop updates have gone by since this problem was initially reported (CC 2017.1.0 and CC 2017.1.1), so I'm not sure which one of them fixed the problem... but as I say, it appears to be working. If so, it would be good to mark this thread as solved. Thanks.
