Join Eran Stern for an in-depth discussion in this video Prep for using the CINEWARE effect, part of After Effects: 3D Typography.
…In this chapter, we'll take a look at the bundled CINEMA…4D Lite software that ships with After Effects CC and above.…This version of CINEMA 4D doesn't have the…full power of the broadcast or studio editions.…But it can be very handy, and can easily be used,…in order to extrude type and some vector files as well.…In order to work with it, there are…a couple of preparation steps we need to accomplish.…
And this is what I'm going to show you in this movie.…So we are starting at the same point.…I've opened up scene ware number one, which is another version of our Base…Comp composition, that hosts couple of vector layers.…Those are the illustrator vector files.…As well as two layers of text, a common animation…that is being driven by the orbit null and three lights.…Now, we are mostly concerned about those two…layers which I've labeled in the cyan color.…
The explode and the boom text.…These are the layers that we need to extrude, and try…to closely match it to the boom design PSD style frame.…That we have from our graphic designer, that was done inside Photoshop, of course.…
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.
