I am currently new to trapcode and was just following along a tutorial on youtube with doing an effect. Long story short, attempting to do the freeze rain effect as seen in Now You See Me 2.
I follow every step precisely. There is just one thing I can't figure out. I did a 3D track and then created a 3D tracker camera from a point and created a new solid and precompose them. I applied the trapcode form effect to the shape layer but the effect and changes I make to the effect aren't visible when the 3D Tracker Camera is visible. Once I turn the camera off however, I can see the trapcode form effect and the changes I have made but it doesn't have any 3D tracking. Screen shots of what is going on is below.
3D Tracker Camera on:
3D Camera Tracker Off:
Here is the link for the youtube video that I watched:: After Effects Tutorial: Raindrops Freeze Time (Advanced) Trapcode Form - Now You See Me 2 - YouTube
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Your workflow is wrong. You don't create a 3D solid from a track point, you simply create a 2D solid covering the entire comp. Form itself does all the 3D calculations internally.
Thanks for replying. I guess I worded it wrong. I created a 3D null with the 3D tracking camera, deleted it, and then created a 2D solid that covers the entire comp. Does that make sense?
