Chapter 8. Designing and Working in 3D > Importing 3D Objects into After Effect...

Importing 3D Objects into After Effects

Importing 3D content into After Effects uses Photoshop as a portal. Once you’ve placed the 3D object as a 3D layer or created a new 3D layer with a shape or mesh, the groundwork is set. Simply adjust the lighting and textures, and then save your file.

Notes

For future changes, we recommend storing your 3D model files in the same folder as your layered Photoshop document. This will make updates much easier when you need to jump back and forth between Photoshop and After Effects.

If you forget to import with the Live Photoshop 3D option, you can convert the layer later. Select the layer and choose Layer > Convert To Live Photoshop 3D.
