Default problem with render cameras.. anyone know this?

i go to render globals and select

camera 1 (and i do all the other stuff, name the files, targa, production quality.. and do all that

when it renders 1-3 frames it comes out in the camera i need .. camera 1

when it renders 1-200 frames (the length of my animation), and camera 1 is chosen, it automatically renders from perspective

in the section where you choose which camera .. perspective and camera1 have (Renderable) .. next to them

has anyone had trouble like this before and know how to fix it so it comes out as camera 1 when camera1 is chosen?
it only started doing this recently, before it was perfectly fine and working properly

and i'd continue try to figuer it out,, but the scene takes like 10minutes to load, and it gets kinda frustrating doing it over and over.. so i'm asking for help .. any solutions?

The only thing I can think is that maybe you accidentally moved your render camera because you thought it was your perspective camera. That could be why the first 1-3 frames are fine. Maybe after frame 3 is when you accidentally started moving the camera because you thought it was the perspective camera. I accidentally do that all the time.

Try running the timeline while watching your camera 1 to see if it suddenly does something you weren't expecting...

you can make the persp camera unrenderable by going to the attribute editor and unchecking it in the outout section
