NOTE: THERE IS NO REASON TO USE THE ELEMENT 3D PRESET ANY MORE. THIS FEATURE HAS BEEN INTEGRATED INTO THE PLUGIN. THANK YOU.

Download them here: cl.ly/LOHb Update: Now supports PARENTED scale. Works in non-English installs.

1. Element 3D NullTracker

This allows Group 1 of Element 3D to absorb all position/rotation/scale transforms from a defined 3D layer. Simply apply the preset and then select the layer to be tracked in the "Tracking Layer" pop-up.

2. Light Culling

A simple preset that adjust light intensity based on its angle to the active camera. Particularly useful for visible light plugins that use directional lights. This preset both adjust intensity when it is facing the camera, and disables the intensity when pointing away from the camera.

These are .ffx presets for AE CS5 and higher. For more information on how to install presets, please refer to the After Effects documentation. Generally, they go in your user documents / Adobe / After Effects CS6 / User Presets folder.

Many thanks to Dan Ebberts and Kevin Schires for the original code that I hacked together for this.
