[UPDATED] New Plug-in Trailer: ORB!


UPDATE: Orb Plug-in Now Available

Today I’m excited to share with you our new plug-in ORB! My little side project turned into a much bigger one and hopefully this plug-in will help your take After Effects to the next level!

Available next week!

Watch on Youtube!

Like all Video Copilot plug-ins, this one has evolved! At first I was making a tutorial with CC sphere but it was taking too much work to get it be 3D-Aware! So we decided to make our own plug-in from scratch using similar to Element 3D except just focusing on making a 3D Sphere!

And that’s when things got out of control! Needless to say this plug-in has even more capabilities than demonstrated here and I look forward to showing you all the handy new features!

Hello I can not render any projects I've done with Orb. Everytime the program crashes. I am working with after effects cs6 and I have a Nvidia Geforce GTX 960.
What should I do?

Great Tutorial. Whenever I add a texture to the diffuse, it just turns black. I've got lighting and the camera all set up and even after I add the illumination, normal and stuff it still doesn't work.

Great, a few days ago I start working on an earth model in after effects. So far I've got the rotating earth with clouds orbited by the moon. If you look closely you can see small stuff like satellites in the orbit, too. I also added background stars, a light flare from the sun and some kind of space-fog. At last I tried to realize a day-night Transition with lights on the earth's surface. Well perhaps I can do those stuff next week way more easier.

Andrew, will Element 3D V3 have custom glow colors for materials, and also object as light / global illumination like in C4D? I want to have the glow from spaceship jets relighting the area around the jet, but not relighting the whole scene like an AE light.

Andrew, I know this is a long stretch but I'll be working on a 48-hour short film contest this weekend and the topic will be space-related. I planned a couple of Earth shots, but I could never ever achieve this sort of quality in that short time span. Any chance for an early release (maybe via email)?! Thank you and your team so much for your hard work, it is much appreciated.
    2 weeks ago
    If you need you can find plenty of earth maps online you can use in Element 3D. It's a bit of work, but you can achieve really cool results just by tweaking parameters an superposing different layers (cloud, atmosphere, etc...).

    Check out the Nasa website, all the Blue Marble textures are available, free, and at least 8K if I remember correctly ;)

    Here you can see a WIP of a shot where I used E3D to create a realistic Earth :https://www.instagram.com/p/BfbLpfEljoJ/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet
    You'll se it's not so hard once you have found the right parameters (after all, it's only a sphere ^^) ;)

    Good luck with your short !

    Agreed, or at least the FBX support. It was announced a long time ago, and I have been waiting for it since. Free plugins are great, but I'd rather shell out money on a great E3D update. It's been so long without an official word. Makes one wonder if it's dead. =/

Yo Andrew!
Not all of us are waiting for Intercept. A lot of us are focused and amazed on how Your ideas and pasion to this industry (and I got to say that sometimes hobby) are revolutionary and orbing out of this world. 😬 Keep developing ideas and projects. Never been disappointed AT ALL by any of your stuff.

Can’t wait to see Orb.

Mate you're just an absolute champion. Thank you!!

I know it's been out for a while now but I'm absolutely LOVING FX Console right now!!

Still to this day, no-one tops you online for tutes, your delivery style, free and paid plugins, and just the damn cool look to your site and any UI's.

Hello. Very intriguing trailer and really want to see the new plugin. But there is a question, how to create a tunnel effect similar to hyperspeed, which is used when text appears?

You’re too kind to us giving it away for free.

Instead, you should treat us like the scavenging dogs we are and charge us for it, like any self respecting cruel overlord would. 😁

Always wonderful

I'm waiting

I also hope to see

Element 3D 3.0


Will we see improvements or development?

I hope to address the problems of reflection with Bump and Displacement

If the animated camera .. Tracking Cameras can be imported into Inside Element 3D V3 or linked to

That would be great

you are the best

    2 weeks ago
    Not sure yet... Element V3 has been completely rebuilt from the ground up! Big project, Big improvements! Our next product is actually another plug-in but not Element 3D. Although it can work with Element 3D V2. I've said too much!

    @Andrew as Nvidia anaunced tje RTX cards with "realtime" ray tracing, did you consider to add the support in E3d v3 or is this something for E3d v3.5 or 4?

    After this information of Andrew i believe v3 is going to be a standalone 3D software :)
