Paraview 3.8.1 I should say.

Hi Utkarsh,

I have been experimenting and I believe that the "add camera" option in the "Animation View" only adds a camera to the *newest* view and *not* the selected view as you would expect. If this is a bug it should be easy to fix.

I am using ParaView 3.8.0 32 bit on Windows.

Animation view shows/edits the camera animation track for the active
view. You cycle through all the views you have one after the other and
add camera animation tracks for each of them. Since Views are not
really named in the UI, even if we list all cameras in  the animation
view, it will hard for users to realize which camera is associated
with which view.

It's not possible to link individual camera properties using the GUI.
You can always code something up in Python to achieve similar effects.
