Effects and presets on 3D objects issue
on Jan 1, 2019 at 10:11:51 pm

Hi all

I am having an issue with keeping effects and presets on a layer once I have turned the layer 3D. Prior to turning the layer 3D, the effects (colorize) works fine, once I turn the layer 3D it disables the effects.


I would appreciate if someone could help me please

Thanks 👍

Did it EVER work? Did it work in an earlier version? Speaking of versions, which one do you have?

I am using version 16.0.1.

This is my first attempt at adding effects to 3D layers, so I am not even sure if its possible?

Thanks

What Dave is getting at is that there are a lot of effects that only work on 2D layers and will effectively do nothing if the layer is converted to 3D.

Most effects that directly affect pixels will no longer work. This doesn't just apply to effects, this also affects blend modes and other things.

What you can do is put effects on 2D adjustment layers or precomp all of the 3D elements and then add effects to the [now 2D] precomp element.
