New Tutorial & Free iPhone 5 Model!

If you wanted to get your hands on the new iPhone 5, “Congratulations”, we have a free 3D model just for you! Along with this free model I also recorded a short tutorial that focuses on animating the screen and preparing the model for Element 3d.

The iPhone model is in the OBJ format so you can use it with any 3D program such as 3D max or Cinema 4D.

Here is a free Earth project with 4K maps to use with Element 3D. You can also use the maps with CC sphere to recreate the project without Element 3D, we even have a very old tutorial to show you how. Watch the Blue Planet.

To customize the Earth, you can open the Element 3D layer and turn down the illumination map to shut the lights off.

Free AE Project: Layer Styles

UPDATED: CS3 project file is now available

If you are trying to make sense of the words above… have at it!  Actually they are various layer styles in today’s free Project File.

Since they added Photoshop layer styles to After Effects, I pretty much never used it but I recently decided to spend a little time creating some clean titles to share with everyone here. I’ve even recorded a short tutorial to show you how to edit the project file along with some tips for customizing and adding textures. I’ll be on soon with more tutorial so until then… Enjoy!
