when I hit ok and change the thing to a plane and then increase the shape scale all my buildings are on top of each other. They won't disperse like in the tutorial.

I would think this is a good way of using Element 3d and Metropolitan City pack!? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uepwNfefpI

Clumping FIXED!!!
By default in SCENE TAB "add to group" is checked. Delete group in SCENE PANEL and uncheck "Add to Group" box. Then you can start adding buildings to your scene and once in AE. Using shape scale to separate your buildings randomly...:)

Hi, Firstly I love your plugins! amazing work guys. Would it be possible for you to show us or provide some explanation as to how you created the Scanning and digitization of the buildings in the demo reel you show case from 1:07. I would really like to learn how to do this.

Thanks in advance for your help.

HI, Great Stuff Loving the effects. Question, How did you create the digital effect in this video? what effects did you use additional to map the buildings etc.? Timing is 0:54-0:57. I would like to create such an effect.

Hey Andrew - you've been dragging your heals on tutorials - I'm trying to animate a 3D plane around a globe - you mention in the gun/bullet overview about tracking a null obj? Go on then... : P
