You'll need to use lens flare. Which is another video copilot plugin.

I think it`s just a radial ramp with an optical flare in the top right corner

The tutorial is very good but I am having a problem with seeing the environment once I go into After Effects.

Just went through this tutorial a few times but I can't get my vector art to be the shape of the replicator. I have paths, precompose, turn off layer and select layer, and the layer in comp to be the one. I get (using blob as particle) my big blob with a faint image of the vector art. Tried it with just a pen tool mask as well but no go. On latest version of element. What is the trick to getting particles to form a custom (logo) shape?????

You need to select "move all attributes" into the new comp when you create it

Awesome as usual sir!

From another Element 3D user Josh Burns, using some basic techniques to achieve amazing results with replicator and mask extrusions, find his stuff on youtube, or thru the link I have posted with my sample of that same method he explains in his tutorial:

http://youtu.be/p2nfaxGzz5k

Post your comments and subscribe please, i have a killer Element 3D tutorial coming soon, too, be the first to see it!

Thanks!

Hello everyone,

My position noise just stopped working and i don't know how, it was just working and working, but it seems from some point it just deos nothing anymore. Could an expression on Position noise evolution do that damage:/

OK, Riddle me this. Can you animate between two 3D models set as arrays? I cannot for the life of me work out how to do it. I am trying to do it like this.

1. set up object a as array set to group 1.
2. set up object b as array set to group 2.
3. set up object c as particle object on group 1 and 2
4. use animation to blend between the two.
5. Doesn't work... The array obect set on group 1 is the only one used.

???

Thanks for any responses.

I know the answer is probably really simple but how did he make the blue light in the corner? Is it just a point light or is it a optical flare? If it is a normal AFX light how is it "visible light" ?

I know i'm going to get ridiculed for this question, but here it is. Can you extrude text with the new element plug in? Thanks
AbhinavChauhan
08/03/2012
Yes you can. If you go to the scene setup there is an extrude text tool near the top. This is detailed in the previous tutorial BioHazard Logo

By any chance is this scene available so we can check out what you did with your background and optical flares? It's a subtle but sophisticated and cool look.

Good tutorial.

I want very shorts film like Mid-Air Emergency, search & destroy and grenade throw. Short films like these are useful in after effects even in video shooting techniques and how to bring good ideas for the film.

I hope to release short films like these with new ideas and effects. I trust you Andrew.

Hi AK,
I was wondering if you will be adding extra bundle packs...
I would like a pack (the only way I can afford it) which includes the Pro Shaders and Projectile weapons with it. It seems the only one you have at the moment includes Motion Design which although is a fantastic looking bundle it's not the one I need.....
I'm sure it would go down very well if you were able to select the model pack needed....
Thanks Dave
Ollie
07/28/2012
Hello AK,
I also need this combination, and i am on a very small budget so i can not afford the Motion Design (which is a shame as i would love to have it!)
If there is any way that you could create 'custom bundles' of some sort, i'm sure they would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and Keep up the amazing work
Ollie

I am 1 million percent sure by the beginning of this season of TV shows, you will see an over abundance of different Promos, commercials, and in scene uses of Element 3D, just from this overview right here. Do Not let anyone try to buy you out on this app/tech because as GPUs get stronger, this will be the quintessential app for After Effects.

Hey Andrew, You are doing a great work out there, keep it up. In fact, could we have a "Walking on Walls" Tutorial and a "Ghost" Tutorial. BTW this is the best plugin yet. YOU ARE THE BEST, ANDREW!
Bill
07/24/2012
Hey just wondering if you need to have a software like 3Ds Max or Cinema 4D in order to use Element 3D, or can you use it all inside of After Effects.
AbhinavChauhan
08/03/2012
Or you could use Blender which is free to create your 3D object and save os OBJ
Blair
07/26/2012
This is a plug in directly for After Effects! No 3Ds Max or Cinema 4D required but if you want to create your own custom 3D objects and import them into After Effects via Element 3D you need those programs. It is great though! I'd definitely recommend it.

Andrew, I use a custom 3d object for the element replicator shape, but is it possible for it to copy the color of the 3d replicator for the particles in it vertices?

I love to learn more of these advanced techniques to create stunning 3D animations. I hope to see more of these in the future, I tell all people I know that work with AE to buy Element 3D.

The Oscar voor best visual effects plugin 2012 goes to.... Video Copilot!
