So, here's the plan. 3D project an object in Blender and then get it into element 3D in After Effects.

The problem is that in Blender when we do this we use the "Sticky" coordinates, which the obj file doesn't seem to carry over.

The work around I did was to UV unwrap - "Project From View" from the same perspective of the camera that I used sticky from, which unwrapped it close enough to where I could stretch the UV around to fit correctly. So this gives a standard UV Map for the OBJ file which imports correctly.

My question is, is this the correct way to do this? Is it possible to convert the Sticky coordinates to a standard UV map in Blender?

I also don't have the texturing looking right in Element yet, but I still haven't done all the Element tutorials so I need to do more research there, but this is going to be an awesome workflow for us Blender AE users.

If anyone has done the 3D projection Blender to Element 3D workflow I'd love to hear your insights.
~Chris
