Rendering Cameras
on May 19, 2014 at 4:02:56 pm

Hi, I have made a project with Element 3D and the 3D camera tracker. I have created the camera, and have just finished the effect. However when I go to render it renders the object in the middle of the screen not moving. I have discovered that it has something to do with the Active Camera. When I click to view the 3D Camera Tracker, the object follows sits on the table and follows it. When I select Active Camera it goes into the middle of the screen and stays still. The 3D Camera Tracker is the top layer, and there is no other cameras. Please help. :)

Does your 3D Camera Tracker layer extend through the whole shot? Can you post a screenshot?

I rendered the first second or so, it seems like it follows the camera, then springs back. http://reels.creativecow.net/film/render

Does the springing back coincide with any of the layers ending or splitting?

No, it's like one second in. 20 something frames. When I change the view to 3D Camera Tracker, it shows what I want to render, but whenever I click Active Camera it goes back to the middle.

That is very strange. I don't see any reason in your screenshot as to why the camera tracker camera wouldn't be the active camera.

Does clearing your cache help?

What about making a new comp and pasting these layers into it?

Could you try to fix it. If you have Element 3D that is. 7523_portalguneffect.aep.zip

No jumping here. Since I didn't have your assets, I just threw a cube in the Element effect, and it played through smoothly.

I suggest you clear your cache. Edit > Purge > All Memory & Disk Cache.

I think I've fixed it. I had to start all over again though. :( But at least I got the effect I was looking for. Thanks for helping.
