I'm finishing a project & want to sharpen it with FX. Things like muzzle flashes, bullet hits, lasers, round ejecting, spacships, swords going through bodies and the like. I've found very little information on what 3d modeling software will work with AE CS3. Can anyone give advise on 3d modelling software that can be used for integation in AE for use in PPRo CS3 projects.
"Importing and using 3D files from other applications" section of After Effects Help on the Web, there's a brief discussion about how to bring in data from 3D applications. Perhaps the most useful part of this section is the last few paragraphs, which point to various online resources that go into great detail about how to work with Cinema 4D, 3ds Max, and other 3D applications together with After Effects.
