Top 5 New Features for Element 3D V2

Version 2 of Element 3D for After Effects is a HUGE update packed with tons of new features, including the long-desired shadows and reflections. Version 2 of the Video Copilot 3D plug-in is basically a new software package compared to V1, so I put together this video to outline the updates, differences from V1 to V2, and some of my top new features.

My top new features include:
• updated Element 3D UI
• Shadows and Reflections
