Chapter 8. Designing and Working in 3D > Adding Depth in Illustrator

Adding Depth in Illustrator

If you’re working with vector artwork in Illustrator, you have three Illustrator effects that you can use to add depth. These effects are live, meaning that you can continue to refine the shape, stroke, or fill of the object as you design. You can also use the After Effects Edit Original command by pressing Command+E (Ctrl+E) to update Illustrator files seamlessly in an After Effects composition. The three Illustrator effects include:

  • Extrude & Bevel. Creates beveled edges and 3D depth.

  • Revolve. Acts like a lathe and sweeps the object in an arc to make a 3D shape.

  • Rotate. Rotates the object in 3D space.
