Join Eran Stern for an in-depth discussion in this video What are we going to test?, part of After Effects: 3D Typography.
…Before we are going to start building some 3D type inside After…Effects, I want to talk about what we are going to test.…The first is the After Effects 3D support.…By that I mean how easy it is to take an…existing After Effects 3D flat card composition, as I showed you before,…and convert it to a real 3D extruded typography, keeping all the animation…intact, including of course the expression, the camera, the light support.…
And hopefully the motion blur and the depth of feeling.…The second is the design accuracy, and by that I mean, how…close can we match it to the original Photoshop style frame design?…Maybe we can improve it, by at least, we need…to get it as close as possible to our style frame.…The next item is the render quality.…This means how well it will support internal shadows for example.…Shading or external shadows, which means those shadows on the floor…may be, if you want to add some materials, and so on.…
So in other words, I want to check the quality of the final render, especially…the motion blur quality as well as the depth of field and all the other elements.…
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.
