Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating 3D shapes, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
In addition to allowing you to create 3D texts, which we just saw in the last…tutorial, which is amazing in and of itself, Element also allows you to take…masks, and to create 3D objects with those masks.…So, what are we going to do is we are going to create these little snowflakes, and…this is all just one instance of Element; as you can see, the text, and the…snowflakes are all three dimensional, and these snowflakes were created using…masks in Element, which we will see. Pretty incredible stuff.…
So, let's go over to the 3D Shapes Start comp. I am going to choose the Selection…tool back again, and we are also going to learn a few other steps along the way.…For example, we are going to be using one instance of Element --…we have already gone into Custom Layers, Custom Text, and Masks, and set up 3D text,…but what happens when we want to create multiple objects?…So, if I look down here, we have multiple solid layers. Each one has a mask on it.…Note that Element is going to use the first mask on the layer, so if you have…
