Random discussion on all the ways of achieving many 3d looks in After Effects with, and without use of external plugins. Covered old school techniques (like duplicating layers), more innovative (like my 3D ShapeExtruder), and plugins.

In the second part (which did not get recorded) we’ve created a Christmas tree using Trapcode Particular and 3D Serpentine. Also – I gave away a copy of Zaxwerks Serpentine, Toolfarms AE Camera Training, and my very own Youveelizer plugin.

It was much fun. See you next year.
