Join Eran Stern for an in-depth discussion in this video More options: 3D deformers, part of After Effects: 3D Typography.
…The BCC9 3D objects group, has a couple of extra surprises in its sleeve.…In this special movie, I'm going to show you few…additional options, that can really spice up your existing animation.…We are going to see the letter transformations,…advanced path options, and some eye candy 3D deformations.…We are starting from the previous point, and…I've named this composition BCC object number three.…
In order to speed up our performance, I'm going to turn off the…depth of field layer as well as the motion switch for the whole comp.…This will make the render much more responsive.…Then I'm going to, select the boom 3D tag solid layer, which has the BCC…extruded text effect, and we are going to start with the path options, so…open them up, and you can see that you can define any aftereffects mask…in order for those 3D letters to respect it and actually animate along the mask.…
Now if you don't have any After Effects Mask that it…is part of this layer, of course you can create it.…Or you can start with one of the presets.…
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.
