Hey, great tutorial ! I'm following it step by step, but i've tried it a few time, but when i get to the light source, whenever i put it in a 3D layer, i don't get a 3D sphere like your do. Any esplainations on that ?

Thanks !

right in the beginning of this tutorial i get stuck .

when i click stabalise motion it does not let me set track points or anything . it shows the message "analising background" in the middle of my comp and it tries to scan the entire comp .

also if i shrink the comp down the the area i wanted to work with and let it stabalise motion it only makes the motion worse instead of less

After you make the first track your video will move around the comp, giving the illusion that the image is still, so that you can play around with the effects and make them look as they belong to the shot. If you want a still shot you can just simply scale the bg footage until you stop seeing the black around the video, but for the video to look like the original (which is filmed by hand and not with a tripod) you need to make that still shot move again, so the movement that was created to balance the video will be inverted along with the effects (that's why it's applied to the composition and not the video only)to go back to the original camera shakyness.

Help! Whenever I try to move the Light on the z-axis it's not lined up right and goes into the street instead of going back behind the cars where it should go. How do I fix that?!

We are using Adobe After Effects CS6 and we have been following the procedures in the video of your but got stuck at time 16:30. We made a new light layer but it is stayed Gray. How can we fix this problem? Thank you! :)

Andrew, thank you for every awesome tutorial that you've created for us! Thank you for sharing your wisdom with the world and making it possible for us to continue our passion in visual effects.
Now, I do have one question regarding this 3D Light Casting tutorial. I'm working with Adobe After Effects CS6, and when you tell us to Toggle the Switches for the (Ground Plane) it doesn't give me the option to use the (Classic Color Dodge), or (Luma Matte). The only time it gives me the option to make those changes is when I remove the (3D Layer - Allows this layer to be manipulated in 3 dimensions). Only then I'm able to us the (Classic Color Dodge) and (Luma Matte). Please help, your knowledge is very valuable to me.

My TV/Video class is doing VCP tuts for an assignment, and the 3D Layer thing for this won't show up. More specifically, the color arrows won't show.

Using an iMac, if that makes any difference.
