5.2 Vcam modifier - working in viewport but not in take recorder

I’m following the epic Virtual Camera Component Quick Start guide to add modifiers to the Vcam.

I have added the LookAt modifier to the camera as per the tutorial the output provider is the viewport itself (aka not pixel streaming}.

The modifier is working when the vcam is enabled in the editor (i can move the subject and the vcam follows it).

However, when i start the take recorder, the modifier doesn’t work.
The take recorder doesn’t bake the keys for the VCamActor_Record actor.

I notice that the vcam modifier works in the editor and respects the movement of the root transform of the actor and not any animation or transformation applied in the sequencer itself.

Is this expected behavior or should I be approaching this differently ?

Thank you,
