Greeting and happy holidays, I'm working on a project that If used several cameras (8) in 1 comp, so they cut back and forth, I think the effect is cool and looks cool, but my client want to dissolve between the shots, so ... I haven't been able to find out anything on this, but can I just dissolve from one camera shot to the other in AE, without having to reder each segment with some extra handle and just do it in FCP?

Thanks in advance.

The only way I can think about doing that in AE is to duplicate your comp 8 times, select one camera in each duplicate comp and bring them all in in one master comp where you can fade in between the cameras.

Here's another way to skin this cat: Render a movie out for each camera, take it into your NLE, and do the dissolves in it. It's a lot easier to change the length of dissolve when you're editing and not doing effects work.

Thanks Dave, but is precisely what I was trying to avoid.

Greatly appreciate the brainstorming, Thanks again.
