AE CS4 3d Issue
on Jan 2, 2010 at 6:18:03 pm

Hi,

I hope I can get some help with a project I am having trouble with. I have arranged photos in AE (CS4) in a circular ring using PlaneSpace. I want to have these photos sit on a circular (ring) floor (created from a shape layer) so the photos will cast a reflection on this floor. I cannot get the photos in the ring to stay on the shape layer floor through the camera move. Hope someone has some suggestions.

Thanks,



George

Are they layers in the ring parented to a Null. If not give that a try. Parent the layers to a 3D Null. Using the Front View make sure the layers are in position on the floor by moving the Null.

Hi Brian,

The photos are laid out in a ring or circle by using PlaneSpace. I select all the photos, in this case 9 photos, and then apply PlaneSpace. PlaneSpace does not create a null to hold photos to the circle. Looks like it simply positions the photos on the grid in 3d space to create this pattern.

Thanks for any help or suggestions you might have.

I use Plane Space as well as some free scripts that produce similar results (check NAB scripts), Why not parent all the 3D ring layers to a Null and then position them properly on the floor.

Hi Brian,

Thanks, I will try this out. And NAB Scripts sounds like a great source for AE tools. I will check this out as well.


Thanks again,

George
