    Making an effect follow a pre-rendered scene??

    designer_xyz

      Hello and thank you for your time,

       

      Just looking for a way to make an effect such as lens flare follow a pre-rendered animation derived from a 3D program.

      The lens flare has a "center" control that can be moved about in the scene. I want to link the placement of that the center of the lens flare to the movement of a specific object in the scene.

       

      Is there a way to link the movement an effect precisely on an object from a pre-rendered scene?

       

      I'm thinking of rendering out the placement of a dummy object using a "node" feature from 3dsmax, then import that into AE, and hopefully AE will recognise this "node" information and I can link somehow?

       

      Are there better ways?
