Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Using a custom replicator shape, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
In this movie we're going to look at how to use your own custom shape to make…Replicator Shapes for elements such as this heart here.…There're two ways you can do that.…You can do that with the Alpha Channel of a layer or you can do that…with another 3D object.…We'll be looking at both in this tutorial.…This is the final project we'll be making.…Well, heart that beats and then sweet little love comes up.…What I want to do here is I want to do something that's very different…stylistically than what we've done so far, because I have found that Element…is so versatile, so fast, and such an amazing tool with so many different…options that it really comes in handy in so many other places rather than just…the standard options.…
So, obviously if you have a 3D object, you're doing a visual shot, obviously…Element is going to come in handy.…If you have really flashy motion graphics that are all shiny and metallic,…obviously, Element is going to come in handy.…But even when you're doing something right like this that is…
