Can you open a solidworks 3D object in AfterEffects or do you need to do a special export/conversion? Or do you need a plugin?
I am new to after effects and would like to take our 3D product renderings and work with them in animation with AE.
I'm not clear what you mean. "Product renderings" means a graphics file, not a 3D object. That said, AE will not open a Solidworks file natively nor will most other programs. It will need to be converted/ exported and worked over in a 3D program, so it then can potentially be used in 3D plug-ins liek Element 3D. None of this is a one click thing and it will take you time to learn and master.
Thank you for your reply. Please excuse my misuse of 'product renderings'. 3D object is what i was meaning.
OK, thank you for clarifying this. That is what i needed to know.
