Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Installing the Compositor Link files, part of Rendering for Composites inside 3ds Max.
- Having taken a quick tour of the State Sets Compositor…and Compositor View Render Element tools,…we're pretty much ready to output…our rendered and precomped footage…to the After Effects application.…There is, however,…assuming (laughs) that we haven't done this already,…one more set of steps that need to be taken…before we are able to make use…of the in drop capabilities that now exist…between 3ds Max and After Effects.…We need to make certain that, one,…we have After Effects (laughs) installed on our system…and that, two, we also have…the 3ds Max Compositor Link Plug-in files…for After Effects installed.…
Now, it used to be that this second step…was one that had (laughs) to be performed manually,…which, of course, we can still do,…but the quicker, easier, and so recommended option…these days (laughs) would be to, first of all, make certain…that the After Effects application is not running,…and then navigate to our 3ds Max Install Folder,…which, in my case, is found at C, Program Files,…Autodesk, 3ds Max Design 2015.…
