I'm trying to import a camera from Nuke to Blender, which has a varying focal length. The camera animation is imported correctly, but the focal length is static - set to the first frame value.

I tried Alembic and FBX, both give the same result. If I reimport to Nuke - the focal length is animated as it should be.

Any ideas how I can import it correctly. Or at least how could I copy the animation values to Blender ?

Thanks, Lukas

  • $\begingroup$ Focal length sounds way to specific to import/export. Read blender.stackexchange.com/questions/57531/… $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Feb 11 '18 at 13:19
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, but I don't understand what you mean. What does camera parameters have to do with material export? $\endgroup$ – Lukas Feb 12 '18 at 14:32
  • $\begingroup$ Like materials, camera parameters are application specific properties that can't be easily ported between different software, nor do exchange formats have data structures to store them, as far as I know. $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Feb 12 '18 at 18:38
  • $\begingroup$ No, camera parameters are not software specific, and they are stored in FBX and Alembic files. Unfortunately it's not possible to import the focal length animation into Blender. $\endgroup$ – Lukas Feb 13 '18 at 19:28
