How can I add 3ds Model into After Effects with animation and camera rotation?

Hi all!
I'm on my way to my final project of Multimedia Animation of my bachelor last year.
I have good knowledge of After Effects & 3ds Max.
I want to do a short movie with aliens being shot down.
So, my question is: How can I import my 3ds model with the animation(keyframes) into After Effects AND rotate the whole character and it's animation as I move the camera?
for example, having a alien being shot down at the same time I'm recording with the HD camera around, that means that I have to define planes and angles, the problem is that I'm not parenting the character correctly with the plane.

Element doesn't do pre-anaimted objects, so that would be the limiting factor. Of course it could still be handy for otehr scene elements. On that note, using AtomKraft and exporting the model as an Alembic file with animation might also be something to look into...

        public void removeAllRows() {
            fireTableRowsDeleted(0, 0);
        public boolean isCellEditable(int rowIndex, int columnIndex) {
            return true;
    }Now in my MainJFrame class I have one button for additing and one button for removing a selected row. How can I add/remove rows with this two buttons.

    No my question is how can I add and remove rows WITH buttons My point was the code is the same. You use the addRow(...) method. Why did you write an addRow(...) method if you aren't going to use it?
    I don't understand your problem. Do you not know how to write an ActionListener?

  • How can I add advertisement code into flash game?

    hi mates,
    just want to ask about loading advertisement code!
    How do you add the advertisement code (adsense) into flash games??
    my site Funny Games have over 5k games but they are getting from others sites thus I have no original files. How can I add more code into the current files?

    Unless the games were pre-made to allow you to specify some variables in the page code or some external file, you won't be having any luck... you cannot add code to the games unless you have the source files, which you apparently don't have.

  • HT204655 How can I add gps information into my pictures?

    How can I add gps information into my pictures?
    I understand Photos doens't have this feature.
    Só how could I do it with an external application. Is it possible? Can I even use iPhoto with the same library (since they share stuff) to do it?

    Photos does not support to add location information yet.
    Add the GPS before you import the photos to Photos. I hope this will change with the next release.
    You could ,for example, first import to iPhoto, add the locations, batch change the titles and captions, do all the things that are not yet supported in the new Photos, then export the photos from iPhoto and import them to Photos.
    Or use the free exiftool, if you like the Terminal.
    See: es
    To install exiftool:
    Other convenient apps are Jetphoto Studio, Geotagalog, there are many more ..
    I use Jetphoto Studio, but it is not free.

    How can I merge 2 tracks into one track with iTunes 11?

    Thanks for your reply, Jim.  I imported a CD that I had burned previously with the 2 tracks of sound effects that I had downloaded from the internet (MP3 files), but I did not see an option to join the tracks when I imported the CD.  In the upper right corner there were three buttons: Options, CD Info, and Import CD.  When I click on Options, the drop-down menu has two choices: "Get Track Names"  and "Submit CD Track Names".   I cannot find an option to Join Tracks.  Help!

  • How can you add a where clause using "OR" with applied ViewCriteria?

    [JDeveloper 10.1.3 SU4]
    [JHeadstart 10.1.3 build 78]
    I am using JHeadstart, but have a question probably more in the ADF area. On the JHeadstart forum I asked:
    "I am overriding JhsApplicationModule's advancedSearch in order to be able to search in childtables. I created transient attributes, display those in advanced search and in the overridden method I check if any of these are filled by the user and create a where clause like 'EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM <childtable> WHERE <column in childtable> = <column in EO's table> AND <another column in childtable> LIKE '<value supplied by user>)'. I add this whereclause using ViewObject.setWhereClause.
    So far so good and it works. However, if the user selects 'Result matches any criteria', combining setWhereClause and the normal advancedSearch QueryByExample implementation using ViewCriteriaRow do not provide the desired result, since the ViewCriteria and the setWhereClause are AND-ed together, which is fine if the user selects the (default) "Results match all criteria" (everything is AND-ed) but not the "Result matches any criteria", since then every criterium is OR-ed together, except for the setwhereclause criteria and the set of ViewCriteriaRows, they are AND-ed.
    I looked if I could specify that a WhereClause will be OR-ed to existing applied ViewCriteria, but no luck. Do I have to rewrite also advancedSearch's ViewCriteria implementation and write an entire setWhereClause implementation to be able to "OR" every criterium? Or any other suggestions? Can I look at the entire Where clause and rewrite it (after applyCriteria and setWhereClause are called on the VO)?
    Sandra Muller (JHeadstart Team) told me today: "This sounds like a JDeveloper/ADF issue that is not related to JHeadstart. The question is: how can you add a where clause using "OR" if there are already one or more ViewCriteria applied?
    To simplify the test case, you could create a simple ADF BC test client class in a test Model project without JHeadstart (in the test class, use bc4jclient + Ctrl-Enter), in which you first apply a few ViewCriteriaRows to a View Object and also add a where clause.
    Can you please log a TAR at MetaLink ( ), or ask this question at the JDeveloper forum at ? (This what I am doing now ;-))

    Anyone knowing the answer or am I asking for an enhancement?

    Can you SET your whereclause as follows ?
    ('Y' = <isAnd>
    and EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM <childtable> WHERE <column in childtable> = <column in EO's table> AND <another column in childtable> LIKE '<value supplied by user>))
    OR ('N' = <isAnd>
    AND EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM <childtable> WHERE <column in childtable> = <column in EO's table> OR <another column in childtable> LIKE '<value supplied by user>))

  • Bringing Premiere ultra keyed footage into after effects with key intact

    It there a way to bring in footage I keyed using Premiere ultra into After effects? I much prefer the ultra keyer over anything native to After Effects CS5.5. If not, how do I export and keep intact the aplha channels from the keyed footage into after effects? Thirdly, if I have to, how do I remiove the black background I get as a result of a default quick time movie file?

    You can not export a clip with alpha from PPRO.
    Easiest way is just doing the key in Keylight - AEFX ( which is far more powerful and flexible than Ultra Key . As good as it is, it has its limits)

  • Really my question is about after effects, which then renders to a quick time movie.  I have imported music into after effects many times, and all of a sudden after import and playing it under ram preview, it stops about 4/5 through the work.

    when I import a song into after effects it only plays 4/5 and then stops.  I'm viewing it in RAM preview.
    the composition time is fine.
    can you help me???

  • Importing video into After effects, premiere pro and media encoder result in freezing

    I have been trying to import a 17 minute long mp4 video shot with a go-pro into after effects and premiere pro with the result of the program locking up each time. My next thought was try to import it into media encoder and change the file format but it is causing media encoder to lock up as well. Any thoughts would be sincerely appreciated

    Sounds like something might be fishy with the video file.  You might try converting with different software, which can often be more forgiving than Adobe tools.
