View Full Version : Lightwave camera to AE

11-18-2010, 07:23 AM
Exporting Lightwaves camera movements into After Effects.

Is this possible? I usually comp backgrounds in post and its always tricky to motion match them. I was hoping there might be an easier way through some nifty plug-in or something.

Any pointers would be appreciated.

I haven't tried this personally but maybe it'll do the trick.

It does work and I rely on it heavily! Also, take a look at his follow up post (http://mentalfish.com/2009/09/lw-2-ae-followup/) for details of how to setup the camera settings in AE to match (and a few other things that occasionally go wonky).
