With Element 3D Version 2, we finally get shadows and reflections! There are some different options for calculating shadows and reflections, so I put together this video to talk about how to create a 3D logo in Element 3D V2, and how the new shadow and reflection render settings can be used to push the quality of the render much further! How to create a logo in 3D using After Effects is always a big question I get, and using Element 3D is a great option for speed and quick rendering!
To create the logo, we'll start with bringing the vector logo into After Effects from Adobe Illustrator. We'll then get into how to extrude, texture, light, and render the logo in Element 3D, now with shadows and reflections!
