Hello, I’m having a problem with Element 3D. As far as I know, Video Copilot doesn’t have an active subreddit or forum, so I’m asking here. I did post this in the after effects subreddit as well.
So I have a character model that I added animation to via Mixamo. I exported the animation into an .obj sequence using a third party plugin for Modo.The animation has 105 frames and is textured.
When I import the .obj sequence into AE via Element 3D, I’m able to apply all of the textures (12 different material layers with 3-4 textures in each one). Everything looks great… until I go through the timeline. At frame 66, all of the materials get “switched”. So like the material for the arms will get switched for the belt. The material for the mask gets changed for the boots.
I went ahead and opened the first and last .obj’s in the sequence into Modo. I went ahead and chose the "arm"material layer and gave it a red material. In both .obj’s, the arms turn red.
To test even more, I went ahead and exported the last 10 frames in the .obj sequence and imported those into Element 3D. I did the same test and changed the material color for the arm texture and it came out red as well.
So I know the .obj’s are just fine, it’s the importing into Element 3D and at a random frame where the textures all switch up.
I exported 5 total animations and this is happening at random keyframes in all 5 when I import the .obj sequence into Element 3D and I cannot figure out what’s happening here.
