3D cars in aftereffects
on Jul 29, 2010 at 7:13:52 pm

Hey guys,

First of all, how's the CS5 version of invigorator going, because it's pulling teeth having to go back into AE CS4?

Secondly, is there a tutorial, or simple explanation of the best way to get a car to turn it's wheels while using a solid to control the position? If I assign the individual wheels to a set, I can't line it up to work as a whole with the rest of the body.

any help would be great. Though if it takes you away from working on the next invigorator update, then just keep working and I'll figure it out on my own.

thanks!

That's great serge, and that would totally work if i were just using the transform in the set controls, but can you parent the top level to a solid? I find it almost impossible to get the 3D model to match up properly with the axis point of the solid. Though that could just be my lack of knowledge.

Mark, please check the following tutorial:

http://library.creativecow.net/articles/hamad_serge/adv_invigorator_control...

It will show you (Midway of the clip) how to precisely parent your object to a solid.

If you still have issues, feel free to send me your project (serge at nyc-visual dot com)No maps are needed, only the project with your model.

Salut.
Serge

Hi Mike,

Glad Serge was able to help you with the animation.

As for the CS5 Compatibility, we're still working on the conversion. We're ironing out all the issues for the next versions of 3D Invigorator and ProAnimator to make sure it works super smooth, so it's taking a good amount of time. Once we make everything the best we can get it to, we'll definitely release the newest versions.

We appreciate your patience. Sorry for any inconveniences in the mean time!

Best,
Edward
