I have an issue with the cameras. It usually worked fine just to now. I added a camera to have another point of view. I must had touch something unwanted because I can't change to any other camera.

I can switch camera in Scene menu, but it does not seem to do anything, the first camera keeps the focus.

I did try to create a new project and play around with cameras and all went fine.

Can you guys have encountered that issue too? how do I fix it?

    $\begingroup$ An active camera is not the same as an active object. Try selecting the camera to switch to, then use the Spacebar search function and type "Set active object as camera". $\endgroup$

I figured it out with the 3pointedit post.

I had to set the Local Camera option to the proper object(camera in my case). I used to just change the Scene's camera but apparently do not work anymore. At least I know another way to change it.

Here is the button I hitted by mistake :

Now I can change the active camera directly from the scene menu.

  • Button active : only camera can be selected as camera from the Scene menu.
  • Button inactive : Camera in Scene menu do nothing, but in the first picture, you can set any object as a camera.
