nah just make your Background color green or blue so you can key out in after effects. I use the same method in Blender.

Hey thanks a lot Mr. Kramer :) you sound like a dope dude. So I'm using Cinema 4D and i seem to have messed up somewhere, because using the script you mentioned parented layers do not get exported, so the groundtrack wasn't there... basically I don't know what to do in that case :( if anyone can help me, or explain to me, im just starting out with both. Email is lex@seidlitz.ca . Either way, tutorial was great! thanks a lot Andrew :)

When I import the TIF-sequence into AAE they come as 142 different files..
Davideo
05/06/2011
make sure you select the little option at the bottom of the import box that says "import as sequence" , you may have to alter the interpret footage to make it match your framerate too, i think it defaults to 30fps.

No offense meant, but the purpose of these tutorials is not only to learn AE, but to learn other softwares or workflows that may help us become better at this. Try by all means to take this as an opportunity to be challenged.

You have 12-core processor?? This is NUTS!

Hi Andrew,

your Tutorials are great but i need help :)
i watched your Tutorial and you use 3D Studio Max but i use Cinema 4D.
Your tipp to export Cameras from AE to C4D was the Script with the same name AEtoC4D but i can´t export parented layers from AE with this script but your Cam is Parented. What should i do? Can you the same Tutorial make for the Cinema 4D users ?

How To Export this all Layers ? so the Camera in Cinema 4D works

hello,
Are you working for the tv show "Flash Forward", because i just saw your tutorial in this movie. Also i think they are using too much your plug-in: "Optical Flare", everywhere i see it! But at the same it's the ransom of success you have worked enough hard for it! Big fan of you, i follow you from Creativ cow and in your website since your tutorial called:"Text Blur Titles" and this is my first comments!
Take care and keep your smile!
