Graham Quince's tutorial on how to render from Blender to After Effects

How to render from Blender for After Effects

Being very comfortable in AE, I’m now learning Blender, the open-source 3D modelling and animation tool.

In this video, I’m finally ready to render my animation as an image sequence ready for use in After Effects. I’ll cover the basics of each step including making sure your lighting and shadows are correct, then how to render an image before looking at how to render video as an image sequence. I’ll also cover rendering with transparent and alpha channels. And I’ll show you how to export extra passes like Ambient Occlusion and Normal passes, which can be used in AE to improve the final result.

By the end, you’ll have a better understanding of how to render projects in After Effects and be able to produce high-quality renderings that will look great in your projects!
