By Joey Korenman

Here's how to work with 3D assets in After Effects.

If you want to be at the top of your MoGraph game you're going to need to know how to work with 3D renders in After Effects. Cineware is great for this some of the time, but it can't do everything for you just yet. You're still going to need to know how to handle 3D renders the old-school way. In this lesson Joey is going to break down all the need-to-know info about using 3D renders in After Effects, like working with Multi-Layer EXR files, using utility passes like Object Buffers and Motion Vector Passes, getting After Effects 3D layers to sync PERFECTLY with your 3D renders, and adding Motion Bur with the ReelSmart Motion Blur Pro Vectors effect.
