In this duo of tutorials, Chad Perkins walks you through the basics of Red Giant Geo in these two tutorials. Geo, a groundbreaking new tool for After Effects, allows artists to quickly texture, light, and clone 3D objects.

Geo supports seven file formats, including C4D, OBJ, FBX, GLB, glTF, DAE, and 3DS. Integrated cloner options allow artists to create arrays in box, sphere, or cylindrical shapes easily and quickly. Use any layer or comp to customize textures and materials using the full power of After Effects.

After that, he dives into the cloner to create copies of the 3D phone. Finally, he shows the Shadow Catcher, cast from an adorable robot.
