We removed the object position timeline layer. If you had scene level animation, what happens now is we create a group automatically in the 3d scene that holds all the scene content and the animation is now present on that group.

How can we rotate an object in the center of the scene if Adobe removed the 3d scene position? Now in fact the camera is rotating in a way that the object moves from the left side of my screen to the right side and even sometimes out of the scene!

Unfortunately, this is a long-standing issue since at least CS6, that Adobe has yet to respond to.

I see that exactly the same thing happens in Adobe CC 2014, and I don't understand why they keep ignoring this problem, because it critically cripples Photoshop's 3d capabilities. I think it is a bug, because it doesn't make sense that what one records on the timeline isn't what plays back.

The good news is that there are some good open source 3d applications, like Blender, that you can use if Adobe continues to ignore this issue.

I've been banging my head on this for a week. What is up with The 3D Camera Position tool? It only works for small animations. From what I read the only way to do it now is to rotate the camera around the object. But you cannot add parameters, you have to click and drag the camera, and if it passed the the X or Y plane, the camera flips. This is worthless to me.
