Example text

13 To get started with Repousse we use a type layer; choose 3D>Repousse. Choose Text Layer…. 14 When using Repousse you can begin by choosing a shape for the extrusion from the Repousse Shape Presets. You can adjust the depth and scale, and even add twist to the extrusion. You can set different materials for the different angles under the Materials section. Under Bevel you can change the shape of the edge contour. If you want to bloat the front surface of your type, the Inflate section has options for that.

The Animation (Timeline) panel will recreate your layers panel, and when you want to animate a layer you will need to target the layer and click the twirly arrow to open the animation tools. Position, Opacity, and Style are the standard 2D space animation tools. On 3D layers you have four more animation tools; for this lesson we are going to focus on 3D Object Position. TIP 4. To begin an animation, just like you would with Adobe After Effects you click the stopwatch icon for the animation tool you’d like to use.

TIP If you plan to use more than one 3D object in the same composition, make sure that none of the files contain a layer that has the same name as a layer in another file. After Effects uses a series of complex expressions to make 3D layers function so if there are two layers with the same name it will confuse and deactivate a layer. 12 A 3D object in After Effects will actually be three layers. First, each 3D object has its own Camera layer. The second layer is a Null layer that is used to control the layer content.
