Join Eran Stern for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of After Effects: 3D Typography.
If you are a premium member of Lynda.com, you have access to the exercise file which I'm going to use throughout this title. The exercise files are laid out by each chapter, in chapter folders. We're going to start from chapter two going up to chapter ten. The first one in this course doesn't require any practical work. You're also going to need After Effect CC or higher in order to follow along, as well as some extra third party plugins.
Also the plugins here, have trial versions, which you can download and test on your own machine. I'm also going to use two free fonts, which you can download and install, as well. I highly recommend you to install them if you want to open the project files, and follow my design guidelines. I've included here this text file, which have hyperlinks to everything you need in one place. We are also going to show the relevant links onscreen in the right places.
If you are not a premium subscriber of lynda.com, you don't have access to these exercise files. But you can still follow along from scratch with your own assets. Okay, then. So, let's get started
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.
