Connect Blender to After Effects!

1. Install BlenderAe as an addon in Blender (no other scripts to install!).

2. Click 'Connect' to After Effects.

3. Select objects, vertices or faces.

4. Click 'Export to Ae'!

Supported in Object Mode:

  • Cameras to Ae Cameras.
  • Lights to Ae Lights.
  • Objects transformations to Nulls.
  • Empties transformations to Nulls.
  • Planes (planar) to precomposed shape layers.

Supported in Edit Mode:

  • Selected vertices (in vertex mode) to Nulls
  • Selected planar Faces (in face mode) to precomposed shape layers.
Note: Trial mode limits the animation duration to 1 second.



Notes and Known Issues:

  • Non-planar Faces (in Edit Mode) and non-planar Planes (in Object Mode) are not currently supported.
  • If the ‘Ae Path’ field contains a correct path but After Effects is not open, After Effects will open and close without saving.
  • A large number of selections, or long frame duration can take a long time to process (particularly for face selections), you can press 'esc' to abort the import process.
  • Some modifiers can affect exporting of data.
