View Full Version : Importing camera motion?

08 August 2006, 10:38 AM
Hi all,

Is it possible to import camera motion from Lightwave or similar 3D packages into Vue? Any information is greatly appreciated.

Vue ships with synchro plugins for major 3d apps that syncs cameras and lights.

Thanks for the reply Vincent, I have tried Vuesynch but unfortunately its a bit choppy when used with Lightwave. Objects seem to be resized and shifted and the camera focal length is different in Vue than it was in Lightwave. Are there any other plugins or a workaround solution to this?

There is a way, and I found that I had a similar problem a while ago. I can't remember how I fixed it exactly, but...
yes the camera focal length and aspect ratio was out, but it was easy enough to change in Vue.
And I had no real problem compositing animation from LW and Vue into AfterEffects.
I am about to have to use Vue and LW together again, so I will post my findings then.

Check out this link:

The videos clearly show that it works properly for LW.

It is the scale factor when you sync in Vue (an input field on bottom right of the motion sync toolbox) you need to look out for , by default it is 10, for Max I set it to 1 and everything is perfectly synced.

The videos above will show everything for LW
