Chapter 11. Motion Control 2D and 3D > Animating in 3D Space with After Effects

Animating in 3D Space with After Effects

Now that your files are prepped, it’s time for the fun part: creating the 3D scene. Truth be told, you’ve done all the hard work. Your workflow gets much easier going forward.

We’ll also explore advanced techniques at the end of the chapter.

Converting a Photoshop File to 3D Space

You’re now ready to bring in your Photoshop file. The process we recommend is simple but specific.

Go ahead and keep the Composition panel set to Quarter quality to reduce your overhead.
