Todd Kopriva of Adobe posts about John Dickinson's free CS6 project on the Adobe Exchange After Effects: CS6 Material Template Project. Watch the tutorial on Vimeo here. Sorry, the video is not available for embedding. :(
Todd says: "After Effects CS6 includes a new ray-traced 3D renderer, 3D text and shape layer extrusion, environment layers, simple curvature of layers and more . This example project is useful for learning how to use these new features, especially when used according to these excellent tutorials by John Dickinson"
The tutorials that Todd and John refer to are here:
Todd adds, "One thing to keep in mind when working with the ray-traced 3D renderer is that its performance is greatly enhanced by the GPU. See this page for details about how After Effects CS6 uses CUDA and OpenGL on the GPU."
See Todd's post on After Effects Region of Interest for several links to tutorials from Total Training with Brian Maffitt and video2brain with Todd himself. Brian also has videos on Adobe TV on the topic.
