Learn everything related to 3D and what 3D is in After Effects!
Learn how to create awesome 3D effects in this Adobe After Effects beginner tutorial! I will cover working with 3D layers, cameras and lights and show you everything you need to know to get started!
1. Working with 3D Layers
You can mark any layer in your After Effects composition as a 3D layer. Once you have enabled the 3D switch on the layer you can place the layer anywhere in the 3D space in your scene. Both images and video layers can be 3D.
2. Working with Cameras
You can create a camera in your After Effects composition and move it around the 3D elements in your scene. The camera defines how these elements will be viewed. You can animate the position, orientation and point of interest of the camera to create some cool 3D effects!
3. Working with Lights
Finally, you can place all sorts of lights in the 3D space of your scene and use them to illuminate the 3D layers. There are different types of lights available, like Spotlight, Point Light, Parallel Light and Ambient light.
Once you get the hang of working with 3D in After Effects you can start creating some awesome visual effects!
