  1. @heymaxvfx you need a 3D tracking app, like SynthEyes, PFTrack, Boujou, or PFHoe to solve for the camera. Then you’d bring the camera data into AE and use Trapcode 2 to create the animated elements. Motion is really limited.

  2. Good job Eric Epstein !
    Could you possibly tell me how u create shadows of particle on the streets ?
    Does particles cast shadows on another layer ?
    or s.th else ?
    thanx !

    • @ shahab. The shadows feature provides shading but does not cast shadows really. Those are pre-comps of the same particle setup laid on the ground.

      • Hey Eric ! thanx !
        an other quastion!
        Is particulars effect of a layer cast shadows on particular effect on another layer ?
        I think u r using 3 or more particular layers for “streaklet on street” part of your proj. Is that right? so it seems that upper layers are casting shadows on the beneath layers ( particular layers) and they are darker !

        May be a little tutorial !
        Thank you very much!

  3. @brianwalsh.nyc Thanks that’s good to know, i had no idea AE could read a Syneyes file (or 3D track)

    Thanks :)
