View Full Version : Proper settings in Vue 6 for AE 7?

05-03-2007, 07:47 PM

I made an animated character in Poser => imported it in Vue 6. Made a landscape with some objects in Vue 6.

My problem is now to get the right render settings in vue for final compositing in AE 7 (with each single object as a layer).

In the serttings under "Render what?" I enabled G-Buffer + Multi-Pass => under "Render Destination" => render to disk => psd. But after this I get an error-message, that this is a wrong format.

Is there anyone, who has experience with the workflow between Vue + AE and can tell me the right way for rendering?

I get always these messages:

Heres a way to do it...check image.

The render was imported into photoshop to show you the results...But you could just as easy import it into AE7 with the alphas.

EDIT: It actually is a bit different when trying to import into AE, as for some reason even though selected the psd doesn't save embeded alpha...But you can save as seperated files and alphas are also created, then you can use the Luma matte.

Or If you import the psd as layers..theres no alpha info, but you can use Luma Key..

Thank you Ivan - now it works. I made the "mistake" to enable "Render to disk" and not "Render to screen". Why it doesn´t work with "render to disk"?

I'm not sure why...Is there any reason you need to render to disk? Even though it is set to render to screen, you can still render an image sequence through the animation render options.
