    Hi,

    I was just wondering if you could use an image as the canvas in Motion, rather than a solid colour?

    The reason is, I want to use a camera to pan and zoom around some text, but the image I'm using as a background pans and zooms with it.

    Is there anything I can to to stop this - can a camera be made to only affect one group?

    Thanks.

    You can't do it in the way you described it, as in the image as the canvas. But what you can do is create a new group that is outside the main group you have and turn off the 3D layering. That will make your image still while the camera moves. Make sense?

    Just wanted to say that your solution worked perfectly :)
    Thanks! It was bugging me for ages how to do that.
