Dragonborn Camera glitching out when in black book worlds
I've been doing some searching around for any mentions of the camera glitch issue I am experiencing whenever I read a black book and get teleported to Apocrypha. In apocrypha I can't look up or down at all, and I have very limited control over looking to my left or right because the camera makes buggy shifts in either direction randomely, which makes it pretty unplayable. Also, I can't see my characters arms in first person mode or anything at all that I have equipped. I hear the sound of my crossbow being equipped in my arms, but see none of it. I also cannot switch between 3rd & 1st person camera modes. It's pretty futile trying to play with this glitch, so I can't do any of the quests in apocrypha yet. Oh, and I can't save at all in apocrypha, though idk if that's normal.

So far I haven't come across anything in the user community on this particular bug. Are there any console commands worth trying? I have several mods installed, but I've had these mods enabled for quite some time without ever encountering this camera glitch.

Any help here would be great!

Perhaps this should catch the attention of a bethesda employee on these forums, I've seen that on some posts they chime in with their input...because it seems there is virtually no acknowledgement of this quest-impeding camera bug on the internet right now.

I may contact Bethesda for this.

Same issue. Makes this unplayable.

After combing through various forums, I was able to find a solution that worked for me. What I did was when in Apocrypha, in the console I entered: Player.setrace khajiitracevampire

This turns you into a vampire, which oddly fixes the problem. Keep in mind, I am playing as a Khajiit, but it works for any race. Just enter your race type, for example if you are a nord: Player.setrace nordracevampire

Also, once you enter this into the console and become a vampire, you can use the console command to cure yourself which is: setstage 000EAFD5 10.
