I would like to learn how to do the effect where people are sucked into the Jumanji game. What tutorial would I use for that and how do you use the Video Copilot software? I have paid $500 for some other software of yours.

i have a common doubt in all the videos when u place 3d elements why do you track and keep a null object can u please tell me

The Null object is used just to place the track information of the scene. It is a transparent layer. The track information is used to place the element on the real environment.

isn't it possible to do it z depth using element 3d? I saw there're also fractured objects there too... so, why not to do just at AE?
