Now that you have the titles in the scene, the next step is to add some dimension to them. What is a technique for adding dimension to titles in Adobe After Effects? In this movie, author Eran Stern will guide you through you how to add dimension to text by using the ray-tracer 3D engine inside Adobe After Effects.
- Great, we now have the titles in the scene…and I think we are ready to add some dimension to them.…So, in this movie, I'll show you how to do it…using the Ray Tracer 3D engine…inside After Effects.…So, just to remind you, this is what we've…managed to create in the previous movie.…We've already tracked the 3D color motion…and added two simple 3D titles.…Now, those titles are not extruded yet.…We are going to do it using the ray trace…3D engine here inside After Effects.…
So, the first thing that we need to do…is change the renderer.…You can go ahead and click on the renderer,…Classic 3D here in the composition panel…or you can go to the composition settings…and from the Advanced option, you can switch it from here.…So, I'm just going to choose ray tracer…and if you're doing it for the first time,…After Effects will warn you that some of the features…are not going to be available when you are using…this renderer, such as blending modes,…track mods, layer styles,…and other masks and effects properties.…
This is something that you need to be aware of…
This course works through real-world scenarios, showcasing impressive type effects used to create visually stunning scenes. To make type integrate seamlessly with the footage, Eran demonstrates how to use tracking, rotoscoping, particles, distortions, camera effects, and more. Compositing is performed in Premiere Pro as the main editing hub. In addition to Photoshop and After Effects, the course also explores a PixelSquid plugin, a Bounce Pack set of transitions, ReelSmart Motion Blur, a Continuum Complete set of 3D objects, and some text design templates of Titler Pro 4. These third-party plugins are introduced to complement your workflow while keeping time spent outside the editing interface minimal. This course is designed to equip you with the skills needed to create promos, trailers, and openers that exhibit superb use of 3D titles.
