    The camera perspective X, Y, and Z properties are found in the environment object > camera perspective properties area.

    We'll be making updates to that to make the camera it's own object and can look into making it share-able between sessions. You could delete the 3D content and then save the empty .dn scene with some saved bookmarks as a template for now.

    Trying to have separate files with the same exact camera views is really hard. There is no actual camera object that you can even copy the x,y,z position of so it's really hard to achieve continuity. Having an option to add camera views to the library or to import/export them would be an amazing feature.
    Thank you!

    Sure! So one of the best features of Keyshot is the import/ export capabilities, one of which is the camera. This is really all part of a wider request of being able to import fbx files, CAD files, Maya files etc, bringing in not just geo data but camera and maybe even lights. Being able to also export the same level of data, so geo and camera position, focal length etc would be key. These features are 100% essential for us to use this software in a professional environment, without them, this program simply cannot fit into our current 3D pipeline. Further to this, being able to export this data into after effects to utilize the 3D capabilities in AE is a clear missing feature at the moment. Especially with the aim to also work with the Element 3D plugin. Thanks very much
