Nested 3d Layers, Collapse Transformations, Lights and Effects

Recommended Posts

I think I know the answer already but, is there a way to add effects to a 3d pre-comp with collapse transformations without it screwing up render order, lights and shadows, blending modes, etc. of the nested layers?

 

I've always accepted it as "just the way AE's 3d works," but if anyone knows of a workaround, let me know.

Unfortunately not. You could build a chain of pre-comps where the effects are applied in 2D, then the stuff is assembled in another 3D comp which in turn is nested in your main comp and use expressions to remote control the effects, but that's probably as good as it gets...
