Simple way to manipulate a 3d object in AE
on Mar 22, 2013 at 3:22:02 pm

Hi

I have been tasked with creating a halo on some characters in a film sequence.

Is there a simple way of doing this within AE? I have a 3d track already done of the characters. Is there a simple plug-in available that would let me create a 3d shape in AE and be able to manipulate it? Or would 3d stroke possibly be an option? Looking for simplicity.

Cheers...

Ps - I have no 3d experience to speak of.

Chris

Hello Chris

Don't know what exactly you have to achieve but according to explanation :

You have to Motion Track the Characters.

I have a 3d track already done of the characters


What do you mean by 3D Track? Are you talking of the new 3D Camera Tracker feature of AE?

I used camera tracker from red giant to get a good track. Hoping to attach a 3d halo (torus) to the track and have the halo move and rotate and scale with the tracking data for a realistic looking halo. I watched a YouTube video earlier where they used shatter to create a 3d object but I don't think that would work in this case, without some very advanced expressions.

If you want a real 3D object, I suggest you get Element 3D. Ive done a lot of shots that I camera tracked then placed the object using Element.

Just some early test I did to learn the process.
