After Effects 3D Title Tutorial
Creating great looking 3D in After Effects is possible without having to use third-party plugins. It all comes down to some simple render settings and lighting. Then you can fine tune your look with movement and color.
Now to get the right The Incredibles look, I’m actually going to start in Adobe Illustrator to get the proper curve for my text. You can skip this step if you like, but to get the authentic look inspired by the film, I’m going to start there.
From then on, it’s all After Effects, no additional plugins are needed. We’re going to use everything available in After Effects CC. We will cover importing your Illustrator vector, 3D render settings, extruding your text, and then take a deep dive into lighting.
