Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Previewing 3D objects, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
In this movie, we're going to look at how to preview 3D objects in the Element…3D scene interface.…And we're going to start from scratch again, so go ahead and create a new comp…using the HD same preset, 720 29.97; click OK. right-click, create a New > Solid,…click OK, apply the Element effect, click Scene Setup, and here we are again.…And again, as you can see here, I have a couple extra model packs. I have Projectile…Weapons and Motion Design that you won't have unless you purchase them from…videocopilot.net. But I could go through here, and I am going to click on Icons…here, and we have 30 icons that ship with videocopilot, which is pretty cool. I'm…going to click once to get the Atom model in here.…
Now, this is a great way to preview materials and 3D objects, to kind of get of…look around them. So what we could do is click and drag with our left mouse…button to rotate around this 3D object, which is pretty cool, and we can kind…of see a little bit of the reflection of the environment, which we'll talk about…
