Integrate with After Effects

Integrate in some way with after effects so we can use 3d in motion rather than just in stills.

    :) What kind of integration would you be looking for? Do you want to export animation from Felix? Or do you want to take the 3d models into AE for animating there with C4D lite?

        Am I the only one that finds it bizarre that Adobe had a program to create 3D objects (Dimension) and a program to animate 3D objects (After Effects), but the two are incompatible with each other? Meanwhile, Adobe (whom I have been a staunch supporter of for many years) is focused on other features, while ignoring this obvious blindspot. It seems so intuitive, I thought it must be me; I must have missed something; after all, Adobe touts its software interoperability with Photohop, Premiere, and Audition, but when it comes to 3D, had missed it completely, and remains at the back of the pack behind the likes of 3DSMAX, MAYA, etc. Anyone else agree to this obvious flaw in logic?

        I'm actually a little annoyed because I started a project in Dimension thinking I would be able to import the model to a 3D comp AfterEffects. Seriously, why is this not the endgame?

        It would be a great addition if we could integrate this into premier or after effects or photoshops like after effects is integrated into premier. For example, we could choose "edit in dimension " then when we are done just close it the finished product will be in the program we were using. I love this feature between after effects and premier, ( lightroom and photoshop example as well)

        I would love to see an easy integration of 3D models created in Adobe packages - Dimension / Fuse into After Effects.

        I'd love to export a finished 3d object (In my case a beer can with artwork) as a .obj file and then animate it within After Effects. Id also love to be able to add animated artwork to the side of the can!

        I would want it to be similar to blender in that sense. So I could animate the camera and several objects and export a final video clip. Integrating with after effects is just one way to do this but it could just be another feature wtihin dimension.

      • gcurtis69 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I could see it working as a new 3D engine for after effects, where you could generate 3D models like obj's in After Effects. I can kind of imagine it like a cross between blender / C4D and Video Copilot element 3D plugin.

        There's nothing particular planned yet. We are starting to look into animation workflows but a lot of this year is being focused on refining what we have and expanding materials and graphics, performance, etc. I expect we'll get into this more next year!

        Is there any news concerning this thread? I would be super excited if it was possible to use the objects created in Dimension for After Effects animations. I find it way easier to use than cinema 4d lite.

      • Ovidiu Stoica commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        At least make it possible for dimension to have its own render queue. While it's a great software for creating packshots, and whatnot, I'd love it if you could use keyframes to program some simple motion animations for the objects themselves. The render quality is amazing, the perspective and light matching is amazing, but the inability to export more than a single frame at a time is a bit of a turn-off, in my opinion. I'd love to be able to move an object up and down, as in after effects, and export that as a video file or at least a series of PSD / PNG files for adding into after effects. Otherwise, to do this, one has to manually reposition the elements and then manually set each frame to render. Some very basic animation + queueing would be AMAZING!

        Make this a part of After Effects. Would like to see a high quality scene rendered in motion without the need of expensive plugins.

        With Video copilot.. We can make 3d text and bring any 3d object directly into After Effects as a layer, build cities, and have complete control over objects to break apart. The following link is from my channel so you have an idea on what I like to do and what Felix should be. https://youtu.be/3OliPT_gox8

        Have used Video Co-Pilot's Element with After Effects, and as it works pretty darn good, but it would be just groovy if it was all native in AF.

      • Matt commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Integration with Premiere (or After Effects) to place 3D objects in stereoscopic (or mono) 360 videos.

      • Chris commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'd love to see integration with after effects, Being able to export or link 3d models and utilize tools within AE would be an insane time saver for simple 3d animating without having to run multiple applications and cross reference animations. Please make this happen!

      • Paul Jacobs commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        After Effects integration would be fantastic and would add countless possibilities for motion designers like myself. As Adobe keeps on constantly improving its products, I hope this day will come. The key to time saving is not having to use other "clunky" third party plugins.

        Oh yeah, and integration with After Effects would be the bomb. Last step I need to never have to leave the Adobe environment ever again.
