Of course, not all of those features are relevent to our example…which consist of a basic 3D materials and This is our…starting point, and we need to take this one and see how well shape…shifter AE perform, using this initial beginning state.…I just want to remind you that this is what we are…aiming for, so I already placed here the boom design, the PSD.…
Which has the look that we need to recreate.…For the moment I'm going to turn it off, and we can begin.…So in this movie we are going to use…the shapeshifter plug in to extrude the boom text…layer and also the explode vector layer and then…we'll match the 3D coordinates and also connect the expression.…
