Introduction to 3D in After Effects
Okay, I’ve been out of touch (or out of my mind from NAB) and so I apologize for not getting back on track earlier. Anyway, in an earlier post, I talked about working on some tutorials for you to download and chew on. Well, on the plane ride today, I was able to finish this one up.
This tutorial is my humble attempt to give you an introduction to After Effects and its 3D capabilities using just a simple Photoshop file. If you want to expand your repertoire in After Effects, this is one way to do it. It’s a simple concept that you can build upon and hopefully build up a comfort level with an aspect of After Effects that can seem daunting at first look.
The basic idea of this tutorial is to build up a simple landscape scene and then move your camera through it. I threw in some flying geese(so homely you have to look at them!) and you’re done.
The download is a little big (~8MB) but hopefully you’ll find it worth it.
I also saw that Dean Velez posted one (a lot more in depth) at the Anvel.
Let me know what you think!
