Custom Element 3d Video

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 items and for particle making. It is mainly used for movement design and visual impacts. Element can rendering and stimulating. It uses OpenGL to create images faster than CPU rendering is currently capable of. The plugin includes physically based shaders, texture mapping, lighting, animating and 3D compositing tools. There are constraints to rendering in OpenGL compared to raytraced making, numerous workarounds are possible to help yield extremely photorealistic results, specifically if the workstation is geared up with a high end video card. Element 3d is more limited in its ability to produce scenes from scratch than a full highlighted 3d program such as Cinema 4d. However, professional results, particularly with simple scenes such as logo fly-ins and animated typography can be attained in a relatively brief time. As with any 3d program, Element 3d has a learning curve. While basic principles are simple to attain, photorealism needs patience, practice, experimentation, and a suitable OpenGL video card with at least 2 GB of VRAM.


The plugin features physically based shaders, texture mapping, lighting, animating and 3D compositing tools. Element 3d is more minimal in its capability to produce scenes from scratch than a complete featured 3d program such as Cinema 4d. As with any 3d program, Element 3d has a discovering curve.

Custom After Effects

A great video starts with a great script but how do you create a great script? Many online video production companies merely asked you to fill out a generic survey form that they then sent to a so-called copywriter who is really a freelancer in Timbuktu with no background in business let alone your business. Who never talks to you. Never asks additional questions and never lets you have input. He just fills in the blanks of his script template with your answers.

At Talking Heads® we don't ask you to fill out a lame generic survay and we don't use freelance writers. We listen to you, ask you lots of questions and listen some more and then when we're on the same page and headed in the right direction we collaborate with you live over Google Docs to create a custom script using powerful words to engage and motivate your viewers to take action.
