If you have access to the Exercise Files, make sure you're in the CS6 version and that you open the project file that's ends in RT, which stands for Ray-traced. I'll double-click that. Now something I want to warn you about up front, is that the Ray-traced 3D renderer can be very slow in After Effects, unless you have a specific family of video cards.
