Chapter 16. 3D Layers

Chapter 16. 3D Layers

Before version 5, After Effects (and this book) dealt strictly with layers in two dimensions: horizontal and vertical, as measured on the X and Y axes. Since then, however, After Effects includes depth as well, measured along the Z axis. As in other 3D programs, you can create one or more cameras from which to view and render your 3D composition. You can also create lights to illuminate 3D layers that cast realistic shadows and have adjustable reflective properties. And despite their unique properties, you can adjust and animate 3D layers, cameras, and lights just as you would any 2D layer.
