more than likely everyone has moved on to a newer AE, but if you are still running CS6 here is how to get 3D Falloff to work, I'm on a mac OS 10.12.6. When you hit enter to rename the layer, for some reason, it would add a space to the front of the word. So you could either, hit enter again and take out that space or right click and rename.

All your tutorials have been very helpful. Video Copilot has been a wonderful resource for anyone looking to learn AE or augment their skills. I was wondering how best to use 3d falloff with element 3d. I tried it and discovered because the solid that E3d was connected to didn't move in space that the coding wouldn't work. how could you reference the motion data from the plugin but have it affect the layer.

To achieve this, you can use the Fog inside Element 3D.
