If you are familiar with 3D element, once you have your object ready you know that you just click OK and it imports it to your footage with no problem. However when i do it, the preivew video screen(dont really know the official term) just goes all black. Any ideas on what the problem might be?
The GeForce 310M is on the Element 3D list of supported cards as:
Limited: (Will work, but performance will be diminished)
How large/complex is the 3D object you're trying to import? Perhaps the card doesn't have the capability to render it?
Are you sure the object is just not appearing off camera in the preview window?
There's currently a free Element 3D project on VCP - try downloading it and see if you can see things normally with that.
If you are loading 3rd party (not VCP) OBJ models in most cases you also have to load image maps or UV maps as well. I would speculate that what you are seeing is just the vanilla polygon model . Send me the model and I can confirm your expereince.
I'm using andrew kramer's earth project file: http://www.videocopilot.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Earth.zip
But when i create my own element, from a picture or text using this guide "http://www.videocopilot.net/tutorials/biohazard_logo/"
When i click ok, it's just a black solid.. With no 3d element in it.
I'm having exactly the same problem! No wonder what .obj i try to import and disply in my composition, it appears all black. even though I could see it like the others in the window where you change the different settings of the object.
