The camera is just a motion tween of the movie clip with free transform (rotate), it shoudn't be too do. Can you give us a screen shot or example of what you did?

i dont think rotations are supported with the Vcam. just looking over the actionscript, its based on scale and position, but i dont see any support for the rotation of the camera.

That O'Reilly site has a script that supports rotation....but it really sucks, rotates weird and cant go upside down and stretches/squashes the animation.

hmm, that's rubbish, i am making a film about defying gravity, basically one of the main themes is that the world flips upside down and gravity works both ways and all this stuff, without rotating, it just makes it look rubbish, everything distorts, very dissapointing, i will have to rotate the whole movie clip and everything which i can imagine will be very, very slow and painful.

Look up the Big Fat Tutorial and try its v-cam. It supports rotation without screwing up.

As luck would ahve it im currently workin on a VCam off my own. It fully supports every type of transform, and dosnt use no estimations, and isnt buggy. What the camera sees is what it gets.

Also it comes with a virtual stage, you can choose where the stage is, and its size. You also free to add any transform to the stage.

You can animate both the virtual stage and cam.

Hopefully ill get a release out eitehr tonight or 2morrow.

Try this camera. It works the same way, but I haven't had any problems transforming it like the O'Reilly script.

There's a camera called the Re-Animator Camera that I mainly use in my animations these days. It's pretty easy to work with, customizable, and supports pretty much everything (zooms, pans, rotation, fades, and filters)
But I mainly use this cam because of it can rotate.

I hosted the one I'm using on my website for download
here because I can't remember where I downloaded it :S

But yeah it's quite good.
