Okay, so I created a butterfly in Illustrator and then animated the wings in After Effects.
Now I want to animate the animated butterfly in 3D space. I want the butterfly starting in the distance and flying closer to screen. I have watched several tutorials on the web but just can't quite see where I'm going wrong.
This is what I've tried:
I've created a new comp and added the 3D Butterfly composition to the timeline, changed to 2 view and viewing from the right then make it a 3D layer and instantly the image dissapears and all I can see is the Z, Y, X axis. I try moving the x, y, z axis to push it back away from the camera but in the front view it simply pushes it completely off screen.
I am hoping there is a step I am missing but have now spend hours trying to work it out.
The custom views, Front, Back, Top, Left, Right and Custom View 1 - 3 are only intended as helpful views to help you set up you 3D space. You cannot render to these views. You can only render to the active camera. Take a look at this thread and try downloading te project file.
I understand that the views were ment to be helpful in seeing my set up in 3D space but it didn't seem to make sense but I have discovered that when selecting two views I hadn't actually selected whether it was top or side etc. I can now see where in 3D space my animations are. Thank you
