Tutorial for Optimizing Element 3D Renders: (Good tips for all Element 3D Users)
The year has just began and already the Element 3D update is available and our MASSIVE new 3D Buildings pack, Metropolitan!
The past several months, have been insane! A life consumed by rooftop-details like air-conditioners, heli-pads and industrial-antennas. Our team worked very hard to push the quality of the buildings to incredible heights and we are excited to finally make it available!

As we await the release of our new Building & Skyscraper pack METROPOLITAN, I’m excited to show you what’s coming to Element 3D: V1.5. This upgrade will be FREE to customers when it becomes available and we recommend everyone upgrade before using METROPOLITAN to take advantage of new speed improvements!
The new features offer something for everyone, from big features to small productivity enhancements. Don’t take my word for it, check out the video now!
And also, if I flew through a feature too fast or you want to know more about a certain feature, just ask!
I’m excited to announce that ELEMENT 3D V1.5 will be available next week as a FREE update to customers! This update will include cool new features, enhancements and some bug fixes! One of the new features is our Real-Time Glow engine that allows you to add glow directly to illuminated materials or even image highlights. It’s extremely fast and offers even more realistic results than just using the standard Glow Plug-in. We have also developed a custom Anchor Point control system and impressive workflow enhancements.
OK, Before I go on… this update will unfortunately not be featuring 3D Shadows but we KNOW this is a top feature and are confident it will be available in V2 later this year (we’ll get to that later). We are really working hard on it! Creating OpenGL shadows is not a trivial thing but we are experimenting with several innovative & hybrid solutions.
That doesn’t mean we haven’t been killing ourselves to make Element 3D the most powerful plug-in in the world and we know only way to do that is to keep adding features and improving the tool-set.
PLUS, we still have many new features to announce for Version 1.5 along with our massive Skyscraper and Building Pack called METROPOLITAN so stay tuned!
It’s 2013 and like many of you, I use After Effects a lot! One of my goals this year is to make working in After Effects more efficient, through Presets, Scripts, Camera Rigs… you name it!
Usually when I start creating something in After Effects with Element 3D, I like to create a Parallel Light, an Ambient Light and a Camera connected to a Null. What if there was a script or button that automatically did that all at once? As your Copilot, I want to stream-line your workflow so you can be creative!
We are working on creating various time-saving scripts and presets but we want to hear from you too. What would be your time-saving script? Big or small, explain it here and maybe we’ll build it for you!
