View Full Version : Bring Camera and Nullls from AE to LW?

07-31-2014, 08:04 PM
Been looking into matching some stuff in LW to one of my old AE scenes. This tutorial looks to me like the easiest approach:
Except I don't seem to have the script he has.
At about 8:40 in the video, he is in AE, he selects his camera, and he goes to File/Export/Send Selected Layer to Lightwave

Any idea where I can find that script for AE, and how to install it?


I'm running Windows 8 with LW 11.5 and AE CC

it should be inside a third party folder of ur installed LW, the path should look like this:

"..\NewTek\LightWave11.X.X\support\3rdparty_support \AfterEffects"

But am not sure if LW11.5 came with it

The After Effects Interchange was added in 11.5. Please refer to page 158 of the 11.5 addendum (197 of the 11.6 addendum) for instructions on how to enable the After Effects LightWave plugin.

You should be able to see my comment from 6 months ago on the video comments, but I'll just paste it here, too.

To get the option to export to Lightwave you need to place the AEtoLW.aex plugin in your After Effects plugins directory. It is located in Program Files\Newtek\Lightwave11.5\Support\3rdparty_suppor t\AfterEffects.
