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.
