I finally got tired of doing this manually, so we created a free script!
What is this script for? The 3D Pre-Compose Script makes it easy to pre-compose 3D-aware layers by automatically copying all cameras & lights into the new comp with linked expressions! Just watch the tutorial to see all the amazing possibilities! Plus it’s Free!
What can you do with it?
- Create displacement maps out of 3D aware layers
- Isolate 3D layers for different lighting setups in the same scene
- Disable DOF for certain layers
- Lens Flare obscuration maps in 3D: For Element 3d & Particular etc
- Apply 2D effects to a 3D layer in screen space
