Join EJ Hassenfratz for an in-depth discussion in this video Extracting 3D scene data, part of Mograph Techniques: Mixing 2D and 3D with After Effects and CINEMA 4D.
…Along with being able to extract multi-pass information from…our cineware layer, we can also extract 3D camera…data, lights, and 3D position information that we set…up using external compositing tags inside of Cinema 4D.…And let's go into our book intro layer here, and go…to its effects controls, and go to its cineware option here.…And you can see under Commands, we have this Cinema 4D scene data…extract button.…Now the last thing we need to do in this scene is to bring in the 3D camera data…so we can composite this Cineware 101 element onto our book.…
So right now, it just stays stationary.…With our book intro selected, we're going to just hit the extract button.…And let's scroll to the top of our scene, you can…see that that added a camera, a light in our tracker…null that we set using that external compositing tag in our Cinema 4D file.…So, now we can start to composite our Cineware…101 layer onto the front cover of our book.…Now, you can see by importing our camera that…our Cineware 101 layer moved all the way down here.…
