Test: Integrating Maya Camera in After Effects

Integrating Maya Camera in After Effects

Tonight I have learned how to import a Maya exported .ma file into After Effects; and then use the Maya camera as a new composition. Further; I learned to create a Null object in Maya; that can then be used as a reference to replace with a layer in After Effects; in this case my own photo of some fruit. I could then experiment by creating some fly-by images in the simplistic 3D test scene where the layers match the Maya camera movement. The background was rendered in 3D; the flying images were created and animated in After Effects. Now I need to explore this technique further another day; but right now its bedtime. I hope this will help you try this technique on your own!
