Shiny New Title Project

So I’m still getting over a little cold but I wanted to make something shiny so here is a project file that uses 3D looking text with a billion layers to create depth and shadows. Everything was created with After Effect and there are no Lights in the scene.

Thanks Andrew,
This is a very good tutorial on getting that classic glass look. I did this last year, and didn't save the link back to the tutorial. It took me about 40 minutes searching Google to re-find it, but it was well worth it!

Hey Andrew!
I'm from Brazil! I always look for your tutorials because they are amazing!
But... how I can do something like these tuto? It's only layers? Please, if you can, send me a tuto, or something like!

Hey Andrew,

great work - again. I'm a student in Germany and keep watching your tutorials and tips. They're really helpful and informative. Thank you.

Is there any chance of a CS3 Version? Or even a tutorial about this effect? I think it would be very helpful for those people who haven't a 3D program like Cinema 4D (or AE CS4 to open this amazing Project).^^

Thanks for this, i saw this a few days ago, downloaded it and then came back the next day and you took it down!?
but its back up.

And can i ask how come when i duplicate the Fist Text and change it. both text layers change ??

This looks fantastic.

Are you going to post a tutorial on this one? I know the file is available, but I love watching it being made, and learning what each step is and why, so I can more easily apply individual steps elsewhere.

6 years ago
Hi Andrew, I would definitely say you are awesome man. i have never thought of making these sort of effects by myself it's all because of you.

one more thing i would like to share with you and other guys that is: when we create masks and adjust them., sometimes shape looks abrupt but if we move BEZIER HANDLLE by pressing CTRL+ALT, handles respond seperatly. so we can adjust our masks with few points and much more precisely.

once again thanks man. keep it up.

I love cheating 3d in AE. And this project is awesome. I wish you, to make more 3d works in After Effects, to create a whole 3d world just in AE, i think, it would be a great challenge for the community. And as you say we all earn a better understanding on how these all works. Plus i love make this manually, instead of having them calculated by a 3D software. Get well soon, and keep publishing this kind of awesome projects. Thanks for all your works and tutorials.

I agree with Andrew: trying to recreate this effect only using AE without external plugins is a solid learning method (after 4 days of try-and-wrong, i think i've a deeper understanding of AE).
Anyhow, this supposed to be a learning site... ;)

Andrew is right. as usual. In theory, you could create ANYTHING in After Effects, there really is no limit. with time (some times lots of it), and extensive knowlege in art and engenering and knowlege for how things work, you could go about and really replace every other applicaion and plugin out there.

Andrew Kramer really understands this. Not everyone has the abillity to think outside the box the way he does. And this is what makes him one of the greatest pioneers in the AE community.

This is really incredible, it somewhat reminds me of the new Tron Legacy text in from the small "wires" on the edges of the letters.

6 years ago
I agree there are good reasons to use a 3D program for titles but there also many good reasons to use After Effects. In AE Text is easy to edit and integrate into a new camera movement without having to go back between a 3D program with new camera data, plus re-rendering with GI is very slow...

One of the coolest parts about working on this project was recreating shadows and glossiness from scratch instead of having them calculated by a render engine in 3D. When you build something manually one piece at a time, you earn a stronger understanding of the physics involved plus the tools used to recreate a specific look.

All that work- All those layers! Use Maya, Strata CX, etc. They were MADE for this kind of thing. Leave the 3D to true 3D programs, and compositing to After Effects.
Looks good though...
6 years ago
i dont get why you would use this really... make a new text layer, disable view, new black solid, apply the effect 4 color gradient for a varied color, apply the effect shatter, custom shape, force 0 and tadaa you have 3d text in after effects

Andrew, thanks tons for all your instruction and awesome product offerings. I'm saving up for the bundle and as soon as I get it my world will never be the same. Only wish I had learned AE all those years ago. It wasn't until I found your site that I realized that this is what I've been trying to do for years with all the wrong software. Alas it's never too late.

Mind you I haven't actually opened the project...

The concept of "faux" 3D text via (many) multiple layers is nothing new. That said, the render looks amazing so I am not knocking it at all - just saying to those who are amazed (at the concept) its been around awhile.

I know someone will say I am knocking AK and I am not doing that at all. He took an established idea and bumped it up about 10 levels. His render, like I said is amazing.

For those without CS4, the simple explanation is make a text layer duplicate it multiple times staggering each layer by .5 pixels or so in Z space (you can go smaller than that for a more solid look or larger for a more "ribbed" look) and you will get the 3d look.

Now something to think about - you can use this method to make nice enough looking 3D text to use in a render OR you can use this as a mock up in place of a real 3D render to save some time. For example if you have a client who wants to see what 3D text would look like (or he wants to look at several fonts) you can use this method - then when finalized do a real 3D render.

If you precompose the 3D text you can open the precomp and change the words and font and it will update in your main comp. You can save hours of work doing this because all you need to do is ram preview the work for your client instead of rendering out additional 3D in another program. Its especially time saving if the client wants animation changed.

Anyhow try precomping the text and plugging it in where ever you need it and spend more time being creative than staring a render screen.

You can even take it farther with vectors (think 3D "pop art") using the same method. Having different shaped layer (or sized) can change the look a great deal.

Just get inside AE and work with the concept. Don't get trapped into the "it only works if you follow a turorial exactly" mind set. Work outside the box and create something!

hi Davlet..
I want to replied you of your comment for Andrew through a graphical point of with that in this video there have a crystal or a glass text place in the ground.. so the light effect is being drop out to the floor & the shadow is little bit enough.. I think is the enough realistic look that you must try to make & see with the help of some kinda drinking glass in a marble floor..
6 years ago
cool, I always have trouble of thinking of ideas on after effects, and once i have a good title idea Andrew makes a better one and I lose my attention to mine and I pay attention to his.

Looks really nice. Well done! Looking forward to the tutorial on CC Ball Action! Good work Andrew.

Hi Andrew..
I want to know two things from you if you can & I'm damn sure that you can..!!
I want to know a little about the system requirement that must be suitable to use 3D max easily when you're to making a blast effect & put there some ray trace than the system is getting slow.. any special suggestion..?
& i trying to make some kinda water fall effect with the help of Trapcode particular but there have some problem that i'm facing is there any way to show you my work & took some suggestion about it..
If you can take sometime for it so its an biggest honor..!

Thanks Andrew for this awesome project. It is more or less exactly what i have been trying to do on my own, without any real succes. This came to me as sent from above and is the perfect solution for my intro, thanks alot and i hope it is ok if i use it :) / Oskar from the Northpole.

Looking really slick. Think I've worked out how you did it (assuming you've not used any plug-ins).

Create millions (as you say) of stacked 3D text layers with transparency. The front and rear ones should have a white boarder and be not so transparent. For the shine on the text, it looks like you've simply created a white solid which has been heavily feathered and moved it along the text. This is masked by another copy of the text layer. As far as the gleams that appear at the edges of some of the letters, they also look like feathered solids that you fade in/out with the light passing. Add a blur, possibly box blur, to an adjustment layer at the top of the comp and keyframe it to zero in the first second.

Am I right? I love pulling these things apart and working out how I'd be able to duplicate them...

Wathing your tutorials, and examining project files (like this one!), I think that the AE team at Adobe should lift their hats to guys like you! You really push the limits of AE... (like Aharon...)
