Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Overview of the Element 3D workflow, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
Now that we've had a chance to play around with a project in Element,…in this chapter, we are going to look at a big picture overview of the…workflow in Element.…It is, after all, a little unconventional.…So in this movie, we'll just look at a big picture overview, and then we'll get a…little bit more specific in the next few movies in this chapter.…Let's go ahead and come down to the create new composition button here at the…bottom of the Project panel.…Create a new composition using the HDV/HDTV 720 29.97 preset. I'll go ahead and…click OK. I'll right-click, and I'm going to choose New > Solid. I'm going to make…this the size of the comp, and click OK. It doesn't matter what color it is, and…we'll go ahead and apply Element to this solid.…
Now, in most cases, you're going to want to go straight for the Scene Setup button.…However, if you are using custom materials, which we'll talk about later, or if…you're creating your own 3D object from a custom text layer, or from a mask,…which again, we'll talk about later also,…
