Join Eran Stern for an in-depth discussion in this video Create the explode shapes, part of After Effects: 3D Typography.
…The next step in our project is to…rebuild the exploding shapes inside Cinema 4D Lite.…Since the Cineware layer will exist as one layer inside After…Effects project, we need to treat it as one 3D unified world.…Therefore, we need to add all the extruded…elements, including the spring animation, inside Cinema 4D.…If you are working with the original Boom 1.C45, that…was created in the first movie, then you can just continue…to save it and it will update inside After Effects composition.…
In this case, I am working in an incremental number of this…project named Cinewave 3, which has the latest stage from the previous movie.…So, now let's choose the boom three layer here in after effects composition.…And go to the edit menu and choose Edit original.…This will fire cinema 4D, and we can continue to move forward.…Now because Cinema 4D cannot read After Effects built-in shape…layers, we need to import those vector files separately, and extrude them here.…
And this is what I am going to show you in this movie.…
In this course, motion graphics veteran Eran Stern discusses the options and their pros and cons. He'll also compare 2D and 3D typography, and discuss techniques to ensure your work looks great and your message is clear. Plus, learn about tools that behave like subsoftware inside After Effects, allowing you to create stunning 3D text faster than ever before. From built-in tools to advanced third-party plugins, such as Element 3D, BCC Units, and Invigorator Pro, this is your chance to find out which one suits your needs and budget.
