Can't see my building in 3D space. I have my main comp called "MAIN". Nested within it is a pre-comp called "building". And nested inside building are the 4 walls, which are pre-comps called "wall". Four walls are duplicates. I aligned each of the "wall" precomps in 3D space to form the building. When I go back to MAIN, I only see the front wall! I made sure all layers in every comp are 3D layers. Help!

THIS was by far the most difficult project I´ve come across so far! Nothing seems to work with my current settings. Blood is shooting out of both ears and a little tear is slowly making it´s way down to my keyboard....

Hey,
Has anyone else had a problem with the buildings merging into one another when they duplicate and move them? The layers for the buildings are in the right order. With the furthest away at the bottom but parts of the buildings in the background are still showing through the buildings in the foreground. I've been trying to work it out for a while and googled it but no luck. There doesn't seem to be anyone else in this forum thats had the same problem? If anyone knows how to fix it or what i'm doing wrong it would be really useful!

I'm using cs5.

Thanks

is there any way to put roads in it and also is there a way to make it look day time?

You can use a lighter background. Use a different building texture maybe lighter to make it look daytime

Hey Andrew, I just wanted to know how to get the top view, 'cause I kind of don't have this option on my CS5 after effects. Any ideas how to get the top view.

Yes there is. Same setup as the previous AE versions. Where it says "Active Camera" in the composition box, open that and click Top.

Great tutorial!

This, I believe, will be useful my my future plans

I have one issue though.

Every time I "MAKE MOVIE" and play it back, some of the building appear to go through one another.

I checked them all in the "TOP" view, but it is sill the same result

It seems like no one else has this problem. When I try to make a right angle with two of the building sides, I can't get it at a 90* angle, it snaps either just before or just after that position. And I have snap to guides turned off. What is my freekin' problem!?! ;)

I notice that when you are precomposing the building you most shift double click instead of alt double click, I of course I most say you are the best andrew because you are helping me a lot.

I have a question, about the painting tool.
I can't apply the effect on all my sequence. When I draw shadows on a building, it only appears on one single frame at the very begining. How can I do for it to appear on all my sequence ?? Please help !
By the way this is awesome (as usual..)
