    Need help w/video editting fx, Anyone here good in After Effects etc. ?

    Basically title^

    I know it's the wrong section but w/e

    Further details ; I'm filming a short film and am trying to create a scene where an amulet is tossed in the air, gets shot and shatters.

    For now I have footage of the amulet getting tossed and someone taking a shot.

    I'm not sure how to film the next part nor do I know how to edit the shattering part - though I'm assuming it should just be footage of the amulet flying mid-air by itself (by that I mean not showing the person who shoots is)

    Personal thoughts : I feel that I should actually just film the backdrop but not the amulet getting tossed. I need to find a way to "import" the amulet into my editing software (After Effects), and then manipulate the shattering. I have no idea on how to "import" a 3d object let alone make it move and shatter on the backdrop that I want.

    Anyway, if anybody has experience and knows how to create this shatter effect please let me know, I would really appreciate the help thanks.

    there's  a couple ways to do this.

    you will need a 3d object and colorize it the same colors as the item using color dropper for accuracy. then you can give this 3d object an explode effect (on a different layer, so you can make the 3d object transparent to replace it with the Real life object being thrown in air) either in photoshop 3d animator or after effects ... i'll look into this for u in a bit

    i'm assuming you have a .obj file; i don't think there's much possibilities with handling models while using ai. ai has a built-in option to import cinema 4d files (maybe maya/blender as well, too lazy to check), you could also model or import your existing amulet using c4d.
