How Do You Align Live Action Video and 3D Objects in C4D?
on Dec 16, 2018 at 10:19:57 pm

I’m working on a project where the final output is video. I’m combining live action video and green screened 3D animation from C4D in Final Cut Pro. The live action video is forming the primary storyline. The green screened 3D animation is forming the secondary storyline above each primary video scene. Then, using the Keyer in Final Cut Pro on the C4D 3D green screen, the 3D animation is merged to the live action video.

Everything is going well so far. However, the problem is aligning the 3D object animations from C4D with the live action video - to get the alignment from the 3D animation to match the live action video. It would be very helpful if there was a way to import live action stills and/or live video into the C4D viewport to help align the 3D objects with the video elements before rendering the 3D animation in C4D.

Is there a way to import live action stills and/or video into C4D so that they can be used to help align the 3D and video elements? if so how can that be done?

Thanks!
