Hello there,

I am learning after effects but its still early days, I am trying to make a png image appear on a 3D wall (its a jpeg). I want a png since jpeg wont save transparency, but when I make the wall and then image 3d the png wont follow the walls movements when I parent them...what should I do?

Many thanks

You need to give us more information. What do you mean you make make the wall? Are you creating the wall in AE or do you have just have a image of a wall? And how are you doing movement, 3D camera or just moving one of the images.

For what it's worth, if I were doing this, I would take the wall and the png image and place them in there own composition(WALL_Composite). In that comp, I would composite the png image on to the wall, then I would take Wall_Coposite and drop it into the final. Then it would act together as one image.

Hello and thanks for answering,

Yes moor info, ok so my idea was to take 2 jpeg images, make them 3d and use one as a wall and one as floor, I then want different images to appear on the wall, whiles I can get different angles using a camera, but I want the images to stay fixed on the wall, BUT I don't want just 1 image, I want a series of them to appear after each other in the same spot. Does that make sense? When I unclick the Continues Rasterize the image stayes put to the wall even when I move the viewpoint with the camera tool BUT when I test export it it looks terrible, whiles the rastorized exported looks great but wont 'glue' to the wall...
