I can't get a .obj file into after effects cs6. Is it because cs6 doesn't support them anymore. If not are there any plug-ins that will allow me to import a .obj to use with trapcode 2?
What is "Trapcode 2"? The only Trapcode product that I'm aware of that imports OBJ files is Trapcode Form - and only in a avery stylized way.
You can't directly import OBJ files to After Effects at this point. But with a third party plugin like Zaxwerks 3D Invigorator Pro, or Videocopilot 3D Elements, you can.
thank you. yes, I have trapcode form 2.02. Maybe I'm missing something but I still can't seem to load .obj files into CS6 (windows 7 ) . Do you know if Trapcode form is supposed to load a plug in that will allow you to "impost" and OBJ file from the file=> impost menu? Or is there another way to import. I'm going to reload the plug in to make sure that is or is not the issue.
Here's a tutorial by Peter Norrby explaining the OBJ process in Form.
