Blender to After Effects

Exporting planes from Blender to 3d compositions in After Effects.
1- Create planes in your 3d scene. 
Scale them to 0.1% (you can scale it up in edit mode so they appear normal size in Blender)
Rotate it Y up and Z front

2- Select camera and planes only and export to 'Adobe After Effects (.jsx)'. This is an addon, it has to be activated first. I actually rendered the scene in Blender 2.8 Eevee but export the JSX in blender 2.79

3- Import your 3d rendered image sequence (keep the same frame rate and image size in your blender and after effects projects).

4- Run the exported JSX. File/Script/Run script file
This will create a new composition with the 3d camera and 3d Null from the planes

5- Drag the image sequence in the composition. Send the layer to back.

6- Replace the Nulls with you screen compositions (use alt-drag and drop so it kept the 3d settings)

7- set the 'screens' opacity to 100. Set their Anchor Point to half the size of their compostion (if 1920x1080 =  anchor point : 960,0 540,0 0,0)

8-Done. You can play with fx to adjust your compositing

>>download  the blend 2.8 (used for render)

animation workout MrBigguy

Decided to work my animation 'skills' a bit. Just build a basic model and riggued it in minutes with the most underrrated Rigify addon (delivered by default with Blender). And yes, I saw Incredibles2 two days ago ;)
My first box lift animation try!

simple Hard surface addon wip

Working on a my messy toolbox addon for daily needs. I am focusing on hard surface simple "hardops" like boolean and bevel management with basic button push. Nothing to learn. Just buttons.
Stay tuned...
