Chapter: Compositing Tools and Techniques
Topic: 3D Objects (or pseudo 3D) Objects for 2D Space
In this two part tutorial, we will be creating one of the most desired effects in After Effects, a 3D filmstrip. This tutorial will push us a bit further using the mesh warp feature in FreeForm AE. We will use pre-comps and a few tricks to create moving 3D film that, thanks to FreeForm AE, can take any shape. Part one will focus on creating a filmstrip from a single clip of footage and making it look like it’s moving. We’ll then use FreeForm AE to bend it around 3D space.
