View Full Version : convert align to text to animation AE can use
01-11-2005, 03:49 PM
Hey whats up. I got a quick question. It should be simple. Basically I have a camera that is being animated via align to spline expression, but this scenario doesn't create key frames for the camera when I multipass it out to After Effects. As a result I can't use expressions to match the camera movement on 3d layers. I know that I did this before, but for the life of me I can't seem to remember it now? The grasshopper needs guidance.

are you creating an ".aec" project file on the save tab, and then importing the whole with this file?
I'm pretty sure you should get keyframes - I'm pretty sure I get them (though I've never use them for expressions).

yes I am saving a .aec file and technically there is only 1 key frame at frame 1 and that is it.

Bake the camera animation before you save the AE file and you'll be good to go.
