I can't get this to work with E3D 2.0? It seems that the random seed doesn't work the same way? I have all of the models showing up in the same place instead of randomizing?

I'm having the same problem. In E3D2 I selected 7 buildings, and in AE, following your steps, results in 50 iterations of my stack of buildings, as opposed to 50 random buildings. Any help would be great.

How do I create the "Scanning" effect at 00:56 of the tutorial 136. Metro City.

Pretty sure its achieved by using the 'FOCUS' channel or something similar on E3D output settings. Duplicate the instance of E3D then composite the effect on top animating the focus distance. Worth a go....

well take the camera tool and rotate the camera or move the camera ( press c )
because you dont ove the building, you move the camera around the buildings

imagine it that way your camera is a helicopter and flys around the city.

to get to the camera tool you press c. Now there are different types of camera movement

rotating( well its rotating )

parallel ( like just plain and simple moving )

and zoom ( zoom duuh )

to switch between those different camera moving-modes you have to press c again
