After Effects

Here are some tips for creating 3D objects in After Effects.

The 3D system in After Effects does have more limitations than a full 3D package, but sometimes you don't need all of the power that something like Cinema 4D has to offer. Simply put, if you need some quick and dirty 3D you might be better off staying in After Effects. In this tutorial you'll learn some helpful tips and tricks to use when setting up a 3D scene in After Effects. We'll also take a look at some animation principles that will help make your work look even better. Hopefully even you veterans will learn something new.
