Join Eran Stern for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating shapes from vector layers, part of After Effects Artist in Action: Eran Stern's Broadcast Design.

So, if you want to follow along, you must …have at least After Effects CS6. So, in this movie, we'll start by …converting a vector layer to shapes, and then rearrange the shapes to be used as a …base for our 3D extrusion.

I want to take it a step further and create some nice 3D titles with extrusion …
