I did not get to see your Fringe breakdown, but would have liked to say hello and asked you to give thanks to Matt for all the very fast feedback on the support. and off course the normal humble thanks for all the sharing!

I did learn from Jaycee (again with the spelling) Of a plugin called "Project Sync" (http://aescripts.com/ae-project-sync/) with is really great!

I don't think Element has gone to Adobe. If you look at the features of the 3D in AE6 it is not the same as what we have seen for Element. Also, Andrew is doing a session on movie titles (Designing Main Titles with Adobe After Effects for Programs Like Foxs Fringe and Super 8
Featuring Andrew Kramer, Videocopilot.net). Although, I wouldn't be surprised if Element isn't seen durning those presentation.

I finally got it.

Kramer must have dished out some contract with Adobe, and ditched Element. Too coincidental. Shouldn't he be releasing Element?! Adobe is releasing After Effects 6 at this booth (The one Kramer is gonna be at?!)...After Effects CS6 has 3D capabilities now. And a 3D tracker built in. No need for element now, Kramer must have worked out a deal! I wanted Element so bad for so long! I love this site either way and would buy Element still if it is released in the future, just to support Kramer's hard work.

    if the element tech is the new 3d stuff appearing in cs6 cant blame him. he will make a very tasty licensing pay check from it every month... fair play to him!
    Jody black
    3 years ago
    I have been wondering this as well but i have just finished watching a few hours worth of After Effects CS6 videos and there is no mention of the ability to import OBJs for use in 3D particle systems.... this was the major seller... the ability to take an OBJ file into After Effects is where the real seller of Element is gonna be....

    CS6 looks fantastic but with the details revealed so far i cannot see how one would create a 3D sphere for example... nothing too complicated, just 3D elements a little more complex than extruded shapes with edge bevelling... which are essentially 2D shapes with depth.
    Jody Black

    Unless they reveal Element 3D as a new built in plugin, much like Adobes licensing of Keylight and CycoreFX and other now 'built in' effects.
    Randy

    Excuse me for interjecting some perspective to your limited world, but Andrew "Kramer" has given for free for years projects, presets and creative ideas that we have used shamelessly in our work for several years, yet you seem to resent him making a few dollars off of the product he has had the most impact in making available to the common man? I was at the show. I can see now how Element will be an essential add on to AE6. The Adobe folks exhibited a very basic knowledge in regard to how to apply the 3d effects. I spent 6 hours and asked them every question I could think of. Elements will make it all make sense. The 3d does support extrusion of illustrator vectors and works pretty great, but doesn't allow texture mapping yet, but does allow reflection maps. all fairly awesome. Elements I'm sure will rock our world and be a must-have.
    Jody Black
    3 years ago
    Hi Randy, thanks for joining in, despite your opening being more than a little condescending and rude... I don't think I or the poster above have said a single unkind word towards Andrew and all his hard work so I am stumped as to why you felt the need to tell us off!! Your input has answered one question of mine that was unclear in regards to texture mapping.... My point was that while the addition of 3D in AW CS6 was a great thing I did not think it was based on Andrew's Element plugin due to the apparent lack of OBJ import that Element does have.... You are correct that CS6 + Element is gonna be a game changer.

Is Element now integrated into After Effects CS6 after the announcement of their new 3d renderer today? Or is Element a completely different product?

I know what Andrew is trying to do.. Adobe Team is launching its new version of after effects at the NAB which is adobe after effects CS6 which includes some extraordinary features.

While you are hanging out with the Adobe Dudes, ask them why 3D in after effects is unusably slow. I even saw in Abobe's forum an employee recommending against using that feature. It took me 4 days to render 20 seconds of Reposs text. What happened to the team that made Adobe dimensions? They figured out 3D modeling 20 years ago, but now everything they do seems so backwards and slow.

What about just a straight extrude in after effects. I don't need fancy bevels, I'm just tired of duplicating a layer 100 times to fake depth..... you tell 'em that!!!!

sorry for the rant

    ehhhh dude what the hell are u talking about .... there is no software in the world that can take 100 3d layer and still be fast !!!!! and for the simple extrusion u can try the shatter effect u'll get great results in no time....
    3 years ago
    by "100 layers" I was refering to fake 3d by stacking a bunch of layers on top of each other - like andrew shows here - http://www.videocopilot.net/blog/2010/03/shiny-new-title-project/

    - Also the Shatter effect only works on square layers. It doesn't give me an extrude based on alpha. The effect I was working on was taking a logo into photoshop, and extruding it, adding an environment reflection, then iporting it to after effects. I used the motion tracker plug in to match the movement of the back ground plate, and rendered just the text with nothing else. It took over 80 hours to render ONE layer of Photoshop 3D for 20 seconds. That is ridiculous.

    Check out Lynda.com's preview of AE CS6 by Chris Meyers. It introduces a new 3D rendering engine that allows extrusion, bevels, reflections/refraction, and a few other cool things. Will likely require a serious graphics card though & apparently completely removes integration w/the Photoshop 3D approach you mention. If you really need extruded text, Blender is free...
