    Not able to move things in Layout?

    Hi. I'm unable to rotate or move objects and cameras in Layout. Anyone have any idea on why that might be? Thanks in advance.

    Have you pressed "t" to move and "y" to rotate before?

    I have. The axis appear, but when I click them, they don't react. I'm unable to alter bones, as well.

    You can lock channels by pressing on the [H] [P] [B] or [X] [Y] [Z] buttons on the lower left hand corner, you can also lock items in the scene editor by turning the lock icon on.

    and this happens if you just flat start a new scene and try to move camera or light?

    Perspective View. It is not possible to render the perspective view. The only way to do this is by previewing it in VPR. It is also not possible to animate the Perspective View, you will have to animate the Camera View.

    Do you have Depth of Field/Moblur preview turned on? I realize this would affect only the camera view, but just in case.

    Hmmm... locked or not... handles should light up when you click on them, which clearly isnt happening. What happens if you use the spinners next to the channel box entries (bottom left)... or if you open the graph editor, and drag the key positions about... do things move then?

    Puzzling... btw, fwiw I rarely click "on the arrows" unless I have to restrict movement. In general I just click and drag in a clear area, that will affect the Selected item, assuming you don't auto-select something else.

    W/o sharing the Scene it's not possible to fully debug the issue: there might be movement modifiers applied to the all the items, or something analogous. Is there any reason you can't share the Scene?

    Watched the video, but didn't see if you tried the minisliders on any of the axes.

    Are there expressions connected to those Items or Nodal motions?

    If you switch to Layout's Modify tab, which of the tools is highlighted?
