View Full Version : Blender Camera to After Effects

02 February 2007, 06:22 PM
Hi I want to export the camera data from a blender file into After Effects, does anyone know if this is possible?

I believe that After effects can import camera information from maybe there's a link we can use?

Thanks, Tamsin

It seems that ZanQdo was writing a Maya ascii exporter for Blender that could then be used to import camera data into After Effects, but I don't know what the status of that is. Perhaps you could try asking in this thread:

I'd imagine it'd be a pretty simple project, and hope someone could pick up where he left off if he's got no time for it at the moment.
