C4D noob - mis-aligned import to AE

Recommended Posts

I've applied the proper tags in C4D for export to AE, but my solid is perpendicular to where it should be in AE. Here is a screen shot: http://img229.images...wc4d0000000.jpg

 

How can I fix this? I'm sure it's something i've missed in C4D, but just don't know where, and it appears fine in C4D.

 

The solid is supposed to be the screen.

Solids from Cinema always align to the Z axis. Just rotate the solid on Y by 90 degrees and it should work.

 

Cheers,

Nick

 

Bam! That's it! Thanks!

 

What can I do in C4D to make sure these import correctly each time? Other than manually adjusting them in C4D and dealing with how off it looks.

Hey Nick, one more thing, after I imported it into AE, the solid is not being blocked by the rest of the ipad as it spins around. This is the back view, and it shouldn't be showing as it is the screen.

 

Thoughts?

One way to have it import correctly in the first place is to align your scene to the Z axis as your front to back axis. Sounds like that got turned around in your scene.

 

Well by golly, that'll do it.

 

Another question for your C4D genius. Is there a way to make the default view aligned or rotated so the Z axis is front to back? Just a way to change the default starting view?
