I'm new to blender. I just modeled this shotgun shell and I want to use it for video purposes. When I save it as an .obj file it comes with a .mtl file that Element 3D in After Effects doesn't recognize. So when I upload it into Element 3D, the model is there but doesn't have any texture or color. I "smart UV Unwrapped" each of the 4 parts of the shell. Is there any way to get an image file of the entire shell that I can upload in Element 3D to make the shell look the way it does in the render view of Blender?
You need to bake your textures in order to use it inside Element 3D as diffuse, Normal and so. Here is one tutorial
