Here is a test I have been wanting to figure out for a very long time. How can I take live action footage and merge it with 3D Text using a camera tracker inside After Effects. Also I wanted to know how to light the scene. Where here are my results.
The major take away I have from this is after tracking with the camera tracker, you can select points to show the planes associated via the tracking points. If you select a few creating the desired plane, right click and then you can set the ground plane. Doing this when you go into Cinema4D, you ground plane information can line up instead of having to manually adjust then alt tab back and forth.
I watched a video by Nick from Greyscalegorilla.com that was a special made for Vimeo.com's video school. Check out the lesson here: https://vimeo.com/blog/post/making-an-animated-title-sequence
