…Another recipe for simulating 3D Depth inside…After Effects is to duplicate a couple of…flat 3D layers and move each one, one pixel back in the Z space incrementally.…This will give a sense of real depth and can be controlled via expressions.…With the correct setup, you can also update the text and…it will flow through the…procedural compositions and update itself automatically.…
So let's see how this can be achieved and what are the limitations of this method.…I'm going to start with the same base composition and once…again I'm just going to borrow the name from the final comps.…Remember you can always check the final version just so…you get a sense of what you need to achieve.…So, this is our starting point.…We already know that we need to worry…about those two layers, numbers seven and eight.…
This is also the reason, why I've color coded them with the Cyan label.…So, let's begin with the boom layer over here.…And, I'm just going to park my cursor, maybe over,.…You know what, the end frame is always a good…
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.
