Just wanted to document a dumb little problem I was having. My compositors need cameras in .FBX format, and I had a camera that had a Look At object (an aim vector) which wasn’t being considered in the export. I tried parenting a duplicate of the first camera to the original and exporting that, but of course I just ended up with a still camera.

The solution is to use CHOPs. Make a CHOP network, then drop down an Object CHOP. Select the object you want to bake as the Target Object. Then you can create a duplicate of your original object, and use this expression to drive any of the channels you need to bake:

chop("../chopnet1/objectCHOPname/channelName")

Or you can use an Export CHOP, point it to the duplicate object, and make sure the Path field includes the full list of channels you want to export (such as t[xyz] and r[xyz]).
