Importing 3D models in After Effects
You can import 3D models into After Effect using Photoshop.
The process is very quick. Kevin P McAuliffe at Creativecow.net demostrates how at: http://library.creativecow.net/articles/mcauliffe_kevin/Apple-Motion_5/video-tutorial
Though I still prefer using Element 3D to adjust textures and lighting, I could have spent more time in Lightwave and Photoshop to improve the PS model.
This is also my first editing project using Avid Media Composer 7. The opening animated title was created in MC7, as well as editing, transitions etc.
Doing animation and transition are quite easy, just takes a little time making sure you don't miss any steps.
I wanted to fix a few things in After Effects but needed to get the videos done in MC7 before my 30 day trial ended.
