New Tutorial: 3D Truck Composite

Big tutorial Tuesday! I know we have been doing a lot of Element stuff lately we are very excited to bring a new dimension to the After Effects world but this new tutorial has it all! Yes we take a look at using Element but the tutorial is really about setting up your 3D tracking data so that you can composite anything into 3D space. This includes, 3D Layers, other plug-ins and even stock footage. You can even use AE CS6 text extrusion if you don’t have Element 3D.

In this tutorial we will cover:

  • Using built-in 3D Camera tracking in AE CS6 and The Foundry Camera Tracker
  • Setup and align the ground plane and adjust 3D coordinates
  • Composite 3D object with Element 3D
  • Build Matte Shadow object inside Element 3D to “catch” soft shading (ambient occlusion)
  • Generate a realistic hard shadow from 3D objects using a simple trick
  • Match AE lighting and color correct Truck to match the scene environment
  • Breakdown compositing footage from Action Essentials 2 and making 3D debris
