Element 3D, Make the spiral surround the image!?
on Feb 24, 2019 at 3:45:18 pm

Okay so just want to say, I'm very new to After Effects and not to speak about how recently I discovered the 3D settings.
I'm currently making an edit of some famous girl, and I am working on some effects! And I figured that I might be able to make a spiral in Blender and export the .obj file and import it in after effects using the plug-in "Element 3D". Now when I have the model it doesn't seem like "she" is in center of the spiral, the spiral either stays on top of the transparent image or behind the layer. What do I do!?

Here's some images inside of the composition:

YouTube video of the project (You can see the spiral):






Please don't judge me if I have done a very simple mistake, tutorials would be appreciated!!
Thanks! :D

Because AE is not really a 3D program, there is some trickery going on to make things appear 3D and you are running into some of the limitations. You'll want to look into Element 3D's depth compositing or world position pass options.
