Replace green area on the rotating 2D scene
on Oct 24, 2017 at 1:07:14 pm

Greetings, dear ladies and lords of Creative Cow community.

I need to mask out the text on the 1st picture. This scene is rendered in 3DMax. Since I might later need to add other objects near the text or just edit the text, are the following steps possible:
1. add a green square on the pier inside 3DMax
2. render this second scene
3. import it to AE
4. fill the green square with texts/objects I wish, so they follow the green canvas and there is no need for re-masking the objects.
?



Thank you very much!
PS: I always do a research before asking, but I'm lost on this one.

Look up the 3ds Max Compositor Link -- it's a toolset from Autodesk for working between Max and Ae that might be really helpful to you.

Hi Walter!
Thank you for a quick reply.
I am afraid I can't work with 3ds Max and AE on the same machine.
3D scene is created far away from me, and I'm here to manipulate the rendered video.

I hoped that the answer should be similar to Track Matte in 2D space.
So I am left with masking the text out manually?

You will need to do some rotoscoping, yes.

Or, you can ask whoever is doing the 3ds Max work to make you some object buffer passes. This would make things much easier.
