I am having trouble animating cameras in lightwave. I start by telling the camera to target a null object. This way I expect I can animate the POV and the POI seperately.

The trouble begins after the start and finish keyframes are set. When I add a third keyframe by dragging the camera to a new position, it drags the null along with it. shouldn't the camera position itself where I tell it to go, but continue to point at the null where ever it is?

insight or better technique is welcome.

yes, that sounds very odd. You sure you didn't parent he null to the camera accidentally?

i did. but only temporarily. I then unparented and have since quit and restarted lightwave. Sounds like I need to create a new camera and null. thanks
