Hi All,

I am really new to After Effects and am busy doing a self-study course so please excuse me. I have done some playing around with green screen removal and was thinking about doing a music video (obviously a simple one) for some friends of mine. Is there any way to create a 3D scene in something like 3D Studio Max or Maya or something then import it into either After Effects CS5 or Premiere CS5 and then be able to put my object that I used in the green screen into the scene? If I was filming my object on the green screen and moving around the object I would obviously like the 3D scene that I load up to look like its in sync. Is this possible? Many thanks in advance and apologies if I should not have posted something in this forum like this. I only signed up 5 minutes ago so not sure.

Grant

If you want to get specific answers, ask specific questions.
In your case, what are you thinking of shooting on a green screen- an object, a person, a group of people... How are you going to shoot them- camera on a tripod, dolly or crane, computer assisted movement... What is the type of 3D scene that you're thinking of introducing the chroma footage in ( a stage, a room, a whole landscape...).
There are various ways of doing what you are trying to do, from really complicated and time consuming to pretty simple and straightforward stuff (if well thought in pre-production). So be specific and you will get help catered to your need.

Hi Ted,

Thank you for your reply. Apolgies for being vague on this. I will initially be using a Camera on a tri-pod but will soon have a camera dolly to start playing with. My first idea would be to start off with an empty room and 4 members of a band inside it (Each playing their different instrument). I want to be able to apply textures to the inside walls of the room that i make and add various lighting effects (I can do this myself but not sure what is the best software to do it in). I have limited space so I will need to film each member of the band seperately infront of the green screen. (Again, apologies if this is not what I am supposed to be doing. I'm a complete noob at this). To be as simple as possible with this I basically want to make a music video of 4 members of a band in a room that doesnt exist. Your help is greatly appreciated.
