Compositing 3d objects into live-action footage

Compositing 3D objects into live-action footage can add a new dimension to your video projects. And with the Element 3D plugin from Video Copilot for After Effects, you can take your compositing skills to the next level.

In this blog post, we'll showcase some examples of compositing 3D objects using Element 3D to demonstrate the powerful capabilities of this plugin.


First up, we have a scene where we added 3D buildings and a red Lamborghini to a live-action footage of a cityscape. We used Element 3D to import 3D models of the buildings and the car and applied materials and textures to them. We then positioned the objects in the scene and animated the car to drive across the screen. The final result is a seamless integration of the 3D objects into the live-action footage.


Next, we experimented with adding 3D helicopters taking off and landing to a live-action footage of a city skyline. We imported 3D models of the helicopters into Element 3D and applied materials and textures to them. We then positioned the helicopters in the scene and animated them to take off, fly and land. The final result is a dynamic and realistic addition to the live-action footage.


Finally, we wanted to push the limits of what we could do with Element 3D by creating a scene where we added a 3D spaceship taking off from a live-action footage of a desert. We used Element 3D to import a 3D model of the spaceship and applied materials and textures to it. We then positioned the spaceship in the scene and animated it to take off and fly away. The final result is a breathtaking integration of the 3D spaceship into the live-action footage.


As you can see, the Element 3D plugin from Video Copilot for After Effects is a powerful tool for compositing 3D objects into live-action footage. With its intuitive interface and robust set of features, you can create stunning visual effects that will elevate your video projects to new heights.
