Element 3D

11 July, 2012

Yesterday, Video Copilot released the eagerly awaited Element plugin for After Effects. I decided to take the plunge and buy the full bundle of models and shaders and so far it is very impressive.

One of the things I really like is the ability to reduce the level of smoothing on the models; like deleting the phong tag in C4D.

You do this by reducing the smoothing % in the advanced section of the model’s material.

It’s great that you can view the output in different modes too such as normal, wireframe and point cloud and layering the different output modes can produce some great looking, more abstract results.

There are endless possibilities with this exciting new plugin and I’ll post my findings as they happen.
