View-space Camera snaps out every time a take is loaded

The view-space camera snaps out of the last view every time a take is loaded. How can I keep the view-space camera in place while loading a different take?

Hi tobi.kenobi,

The camera view will reset every time a Take is loaded. This cannot be disabled.

If you would like to make a feature request, and for any basic use questions, please feel free to contact Support directly.

Hi steven.andrews,

Thanks for clarifying the current state of the camera. When you say directly, do you mean via Phone or PM in the forums?

For the sake of other users that come across this post I will share my work around:

Alternative Method

To quickly zoom into the view space use FrameAllInView (Shift+F). This will snap the camera into viewing all your marker data as much as possible without over-cropping. If anyone has a more efficient method, feel free to leave a comment below.
