External compositing in AE issue

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I have a scene where I have a camera in a null.

 

I have a mobile phone in the scene (frame 470) that I have attached an external compositing tag to so that I can composite the screen contents in AE.

 

When I bring the C4D file into AE and extract the scene data the red solid null is not visible anywhere in the scene. It is somewhere there because it is in the AE comp timeline but it's not where it is supposed to be.

 

Is this because I have the main camera in a null, or because I have the ext compositing object as a child of the camera? If so, is there another way to do this because I need the camera to be in a null because I have it 'attached' to another object (a plane) as it is landing and I have the object as a child of the camera because I want it to always be in front of the camera.

 

If this is the reason, is there a way to mimic the exact camera movement without the phone being a child of the camera?

 

This is the C4D file and some screenshots:

Thanks!!

 

David.

  • I didn't get a response here so I paid somebody on upwork to fix it for me.

     

    Their solution was that my camera in After Effects was set to two node when it should have been set to one node because I was using camera target in C4D.

     

    It's a simple solution which I feel stupid for not working out, but it may help others in the future.

     

    Cheers.

  • Camera target also shouldn't be used when external compositing to AE.
