Step-by-step guide to getting your Blender scenes into After Effects.
After Effects is a really powerful compositing tool which does loads of cool things, but it's not a 3D package. Since Adobe CC was introduced Cinema4D Lite has been bundled with it, but this is hugely limited. Blender is free, open-source 3D software which has lots of potential, but it has a steep learning curve. I've created a series of videos to cover the basics of using it from the perspective of an After Effects artist.
In this video, I'm going to show you how to use an Add-On in Blender which will output camera, lights and object data for After Effects. I'll then show you how to import this into After Effects.
