Join Eran Stern for an in-depth discussion in this video Pros and cons summary, part of After Effects: 3D Typography.
…In this course we've tested six different solutions that…can extrude and Animate 3D Type inside After Effects.…Each one of these tools us…different approach, different interface, and different technology.…Some of the tools work inside the After…Effects interface, and some uses a custom one…or even a complete separate software, such as…the Cinema 4D Lite, with the Cineware effect.…The render engine is also different, and can…work with the GPU, OpenGL or dedicated software renderer.…
So, what this score mean?…Well, they can represent a similar situation which…involve basic extrusion of an animated After Effects scene.…Like the one I've used in this course.…This means that if you want to take an existing composition…that you've already created, it's a good way to do it.…It also means that every job is different, as I claimed in my opening speech.…We only check the basic 3D features.…
Although I've showed you some few extra options for each of the six alternatives.…We've barely scratched the real surface of their 3D capabilities.…
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.
