Learn the 360 production workflow in SkyBox Studio Version 2, using 3D plugins in After Effects. Chris Bobotis, (Co-Founder, Mettle), shows how to set up an After Effects 360° Project file with SkyBox Composer and Mettle ShapeShifter AE, our own 3D plugin, along with 360 stock footage from Pond 5.
ShapeShifter AE uses displacement mapping to change a regular layer into 3D geometry that can be animated. You can reflect your equirectangular movie onto your ShapeShifter shapes, so you can fully integrate your ShapeShifter geometry into your scene. Simple and quick to do. Mettle has been developing After Effects plugins for close to 20 years! Our 360/VR plugins have been a natural progression forward, using our knowledge base and expertise for the 360 medium.
