Trapcode Lux in 3D Invg. Scenes

Hello,

I've modelled some movie style spot-lights in Zaxxwerks and would like to use them with Lux. How can I tie the two 3D spaces together? I'd obviously like to plant one of the Lux spotlights inside my spotlight but the z-spaces always seem off. Any advice on how to use these two plugins together would be great. Thanks!

I'd track a Null object as a 3D Object in Invigorator (which I hope you are using). Then, parent the Lux light to the Null (and match their coordinates).

John's got a very useful tutorial on object tracking in Invigorator on his tutorial page here:

http://motionworks.com.au/tutorials/tutorials_01.htm

Check out "3D Object Tracking Part 1".

So.. once the Invig object is following the Null, have the Lux light follow the null, too.
