Video Copilot Element 3D V2
High Performance After Effects™ Plug-in for creating Motion Design & Visual FX! Element 3D allows you to import 3D objects created in Cinema 4D and OBJ into Adobe After Effects. From there you can manipulate them using a unique particle array system that can distribute 3D objects into any shape! Element 3D also supports your UV texture coordinates so importing and rebuilding your textures is easier than ever. This only brushes the surface of what Video Copilot Element 3D can create. Try it today and let your imagination come to life.
Video Copilot Motion Design Pack 1
200+ Abstract 3D Design Objects, HD Models in Multiple 3D Formats More Info (pops)
Video Copilot Pro Shaders 1
200 Tiled Materials for Element 3D. Metal, Plastic, Translucent, Fabric, Concrete, and More! More Info (pops)
3D Model Packs
3D Model Packs for use with Element 3D or any 3D application.
Nvidia Quadro and Quadro FX Series (Some restrictions apply – Check supported GPU list below)
ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series and Later for Windows and Mac
For ideal performance we recommend at least a GeForce GRX 285 or ATI Radeon HD 4600 with 1GB of VRAM.
RENDER FARM SUPPORT?
It is possible to use Element on a network render farm but we do not recommend or support it because inconsistencies of GPU rendering. Since Element renders with impressive speed on a single GPU it is ideal to pre-render any 3D elements before pushing to the render farm.
Film Riot has created a clever short film entitled U.F.Oh Yeah, Directed and written by Ryan Connolly and starring Josh Connolly, the film is about a U.F.O. enthusiast and conspiracy theorist who has an encounter with extraterrestrials that doesn’t go quite as one might expect. After the film, learn about how some of the effects were made. There are a whole series of videos here and they’re fantastic!!
We love a new Video Copilot tutorial on Tutorial Tuesday! Andrew Kramer explains how he created detailed bevels with Element 3D and added lens flares, light rays and camera movement for the Lionsgate Logo.
Andrew Kramer at Video Copilot has a new tutorial on a technique he didscovered for generating Imaged Based Lighting Effects with Video Copilot Element 3D! Use an environment map to illuminate a 3D scene with Element 3D. Andrew explains.
Post by Andrew Kramer/ Video Copilot: "In this tutorial we’ll use a technique called Depth Compositing to combine stock footage with 3D rendering and the use a Z-Depth pass. This method allows you to place 2D elements like stock footage into the depth of a 3D render. I also demonstrate how to export a Z-pass from 3D max, Cinema 4D and even use Element 3D to output a depth channel."
Post by Joren Kandel at The Pixel Lab: "David Biederbeck, from beckmotion.com, has been helping me out with converting The Pixel Lab model packs into Videocopilot Element 3D ready packs.""In this extensive tutorial he’ll go through the entire process of exporting a model from C4D to Element 3D. This includes how to bring in the geometry and also the textures. It’s a bit tricky, but this tutorial should give you a good picture of the workflow."
Post by Andrew Kramer/ Video Copilot: "In this tutorial we will create a realistic set extension for the surface of a far away alien planet. With the help of the Matte Painting challenge we will be compositing the background along with adding 3D rocks with Element 3D and pulling out the Roto Brush tool."
