Learn how to change 2D layers into 3D layers, and how to gain perspective of the positioning by utilizing the 3D overlay controls.
- [Instructor] In my many years of teaching,…I've noticed that people tend to freak out…the first time they hear the words 3D.…And I'm here to tell you that in Motion,…there's no need to freak out.…There are a number of different options…that become available to you…once an object is switched to exist in 3D space.…And honestly, those options just give you…a lot more creative control over your projects.…It doesn't have to be scary.…So, let's get started,…and I'll show you exactly what I'm talking about.…
If we look at our project here,…you'll notice I have two main groups.…I have a logo group, and a background group.…And this icon on the right side of the layer…lets me know that these layers exist in 2D space.…Let's say for this logo here, I click on this shape.…These three planes let me know…that these objects now live in 3D space.…And it doesn't really look like much has changed.…In fact, if I click on the logo group,…notice the control handles are exactly the same.…
So, let's go ahead and just click on that,…enable 3D one more time to disable 3D.…
