Custom Element 3d Example

Element 3D is a third-party After Effects plugin developed by Video Copilot. It is a 64-bit plugin that runs in both Windows and MacOS. It is used for importing/creating 3d things and for particle rendering. It is mostly utilized for movement style and visual effects. Element is capable of rendering and stimulating. It uses OpenGL to produce images quicker than CPU rendering is presently efficient in. The plugin includes physically based shaders, texture mapping, lighting, stimulating and 3D compositing tools. There are limitations to rendering in OpenGL compared to raytraced rendering, lots of workarounds are possible to help yield highly photorealistic outcomes, especially if the workstation is equipped with a high end video card. Element 3d is more limited in its capability to create scenes from scratch than a complete featured 3d program such as Cinema 4d. Expert outcomes, specifically with simple scenes such as logo fly-ins and animated typography can be accomplished in a comparatively short time. Similar to any 3d program, Element 3d has a discovering curve. While simple concepts are easy to accomplish, photorealism needs persistence, practice, experimentation, and a compatible OpenGL video card with at least 2 GB of VRAM.
