I made a 3-Dimensional Wine Glass in Rhino (a 3d CAD program), and I want to be able to put it in After Effects and have objects fly behind it, seeing the glass and the objects behind it obscured by the glass’s texture and color. Is this possible, or what is the closest I can do? The glass isn’t reflective, but it isn’t 100% opaque. How should I go about doing this?<span style=”white-space: pre;”> </span>
If they have something in common, you can go about doing this.
Such as format (*.t3d, etc.)
After Effects is basically a 2D program not a 3D one so importing true 3D objects isn’t the easiest thing to do.
One solution is to export from Rhino as one of the common interchange formats (OBJ, 3DS, etc) and then import that object into PHotoshop as a 3D object. Import the Photoshop file into After Effects with the Live Photosho p3D option enabled and you should be able to work with it in AE now.
This will work with version CS4 of the program and later.
