Join Eran Stern for an in-depth discussion in this video More options: Per character 3D, curvature, and reflections, part of After Effects: 3D Typography.
…In this movie I want to share with you few ideas…how to actually get the most out of the Raytracer 3D.…And take advantage of the idea that…this is actually live text inside After Effects.…We're also going to take a look at the reflection and the environment option.…And we can see how much we can take the existing design and push it further.…In order to see what we already have and for working…purposes, I am going to turn off Motion Blur for now.…
And I am also going to double click on…the camera and turn on the enable depth of fill.…This way I can scrub the timeline and get a sense of what…we are doing without the need to wait for the render to take place.…If you are getting a slower performance due to the GPU card, you can…always Cmd+click or Ctrl+click on the Raytracer Renderer Options.…And also reduce the rate racing quality to a lower number.…
I'm going to start with four here.…And we need to remember to turn all those…settings on when we want to render the final.…But for now, let's park our cursor somewhere over…
