UPDATE OCT 1 2012
Hey! If you're interested in importing models with uvwrapped textures and want a closer look at this process I have a new tutorial here - vimeo.com/49391176
Hey, if you're like me you have been pretty stoked about the new Element 3D by Andrew Kramer of Video Copilot for After effects. But I've run into a couple of problems, mainly with textures, but also with importing my own models. The good news in, I've found a simple solution to get those textures in right (when they're not already UVW mapped) that should help solve some problems.
EDIT - Add "cloner objects" and Fracture objects effected by "effectors" to the list of things that will not be interpreted by ELEMENT 3D. The will also have to be "broken down" (push C on the keyboard).
Loading more stuff…
Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
