You need a plugin call animalpack its a element 3dpack for all types of animals, THen its left for you to animate it... new comp, new layer =Effecs-Videocopilot-element 3d then select t-rex or any type of living thing.. then start animating it...

Hi, tutorial is awesome but I am stuck on the displacement map. The transform doesn't affect displacement position. I am not sure why... I did the stage step by step few times. Still doesn't work. I use CS6.

kinda late here, but the reason is probably that you didn't set the displacement map layer to that "displace" layer.

Managed to fix this by applying the expression to anchor point instead of position. Gets the same results- also using CS6.

hello!
First of all wonderful tutorial!! Love this website...
But i did have a problem with this one...
At 29:28 where i'd want to deal with the black background, when i set it to "screen" then the rest of the image is transparent...
How do i fix this?

P.s. i used my own green screen picture instead of Sam's in the project files

Thank You!
