Element should be applied to a 2D layer, not a 3D layer.

If that's not your problem, some screenshots showing your problem, some Element parameters, and your entire Ae UI will be most helpful.

here is the video i made sir youtube link below.








their are two things am tring to archive sir.

1: after i have added 3d text from ( 3d camera tracker ) i wish to add 3d objects to my scene from ( video co-pilot ) am struggeling so far nothing seems to help stuck at this point.

what i tried so far

just to let you know i have 3d camera tracker text already
now i want to add 3d object or text from video co pilot
i create a ( solid ) then , click the element button , i add my ( objects ) then after am back in after effects my object is not visible , the only way to make it visible is to uncheck the 3dcamera below or add a new camera above then it becomes visible then again my current 3d text gets disturbed by it and this is becoming a big problem for me sir.

If you can't see your model with the camera in the scene, then the camera is not pointed at the object.

If you'll watch the tutorial that Walter linked, the guy moves his AE scene so that the camera is pointing towards the original center.

Alternatively, move your Element emitter to an area that the camera is pointing at. Use AE's camera tracker tool to create a null somewhere on the ground and then have the Element emitter be positioned there.

[hanna lee] "i tried doing all whats shown in video still i have problem with post 1"

Have you created track nulls from the 3D camera track? This will give you the positional data you need to place the 3D object in your 3D scene.

Also, I noticed in your video that you're trying to move the model by adjusting the Element layer directly. You can't do that. You need to manipulate position and scale within Element's controls.

Maybe you should start here:

If you've done a 3d track of the scene, there should only be one camera - the one created by the camera tracker.

[hanna lee] " it remains invisible because of the 3d camera being their , if i uncheck the 3d camera then i can se the object"

No, the object remains invisible because the tracked camera is pointed somewhere else, other than the default center, and can't see it.

You have to move the 3D object into the view of the camera. Adjust its Position XY and Position Z properties, found in Element > Group 1 > Particle Replicator.

You can add a track null from the 3D tracker layer and examine its position to get a sense of where your Element object belongs in the scene.
