Need some help with this!

Postby GACProd87 on 03/14/2017, 10:14 pm



I have two, probably dumb, questions. Number one, Is there a way to place the arches equidistant from each other down the "road"? Number two, Is there a way to automatically replicate the arches so I don't have to place each one individually? There's going to be a lot of them. It will eventually be a 4 minute long backdrop video. Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks!!!

Is this made in E3d? Then the particle replicator is built for this exact reason.

Guitarboy2828 what exactly is E3d? I just after Effects and made everything a 3D layer. Sorry, I'm new at this kind of editing.

Ahh, E3d = Element 3d. It's a Video Copilot product that allows you to create 3d assets within After Effects. Here is a link: https://www.videocopilot.net/products/element2/

Are these arches made with 3D software (Cinema 4D, Blender, 3DS Max, etc.)? Or are they image layers that exist inside after effects?

If they are 3D, most 3D softwares have a Cloner.

If they are in after effects, check out his tutorial:

In it he shows off a technique for offsetting layers equidistant from each other in Z space.
