    Need help with understanding 3D workflow.


      Hello there,


      I am a beginner and would like very much to learn efficient workflows for after effects.  My current conundrum is the correlation between after effects, and blender. 

      I am at the extent of my budget currently so free software like blender is very appealing.  yet I am not clear on the workflow.


      For instance, let's say Im creating a star wars film. I want my actor to throw a 3d model of a lightsaber across a room.  I am already clear on creating the saber effects etc within after effects but not the 3d model.  Where do I start? 


      again, just looking for the general idea of the workflow here. If someone would rather point me in the right direction of where to learn more that'd be great!


      thanks so much!
