When I try to put an custom (precomposed) texture map and load it in element 3d scene setup. And I choose the custom layer 1 texture it always shows an black screen whatever I try?
See screenshots for more info!
Without any info on your system, the properties of the composition and how it is used on the model this is of no use to anyone. Start by updating your graphics drivers and check the various GPU features in AE and the plug-in itself. E3D is highly dependent on hardware acceleration and conflicts in this department can easily impair its functionality.
Comp settings- 1280x720 29,97fps
CPU-I5-3570K OC to 4.2ghz
GPU-GTX 1660 6GB OC
so specs shouldn't be the problem here...
Already updated everything and i still have the same problem
Did you get it to work, im having the same issue 😞
+1 for confirming your video card drivers are up to date. Element is touchy about that.
I'd recommend directing further questions on Element to Video Copilot support - you'll find more info and support there since it's their product. If you can't get an answer from the site, I'd recommend emailing them - they've always been very responsive any time I've run into issues!
Did you find any fix mine was wroking all fine when i was using after effects 2019 but after I installed after effects 2021 and i just copied the plugins to the 2021 folder and then this started happening i reinstalled elements i even reinstalled after effects 2019 and installed elements on it but still the problem continued if u got any fix then can u plz plz let me know i am stuck very badly.
How big are your custom images. When Andrew Kramer released his Ultimate Earth tutorial, my card couldn't handle the 6k textures. I resized them in photoshop down to 2k and problem solved.
Edit to add:
I also remembered that Andrew pointed out in one of his tutorials that custom layers are 'live' in the sense they consume processing power. If you can use a file image instead of one in the comp then this might help too.
I have a same problem
My images 1920x1080, all drivers installed
And i cant understand what is wrong
How much RAM does your GPU have ? Can you see mph is much AE is using for itself? Maybe try switching AE's project settings to software only. It is also possible Element has crashed. You'll need to restart your computer to see if that resolves it.
I have already solved the problem, thank you. It was necessary to reinstall element 3d XD
have you found a solution?
