Element 3D is a plugin for After Effects created by Video Copilot. It facilitates the use of 3D models in After Effects. The clips in this video were created in After Effects using the Element 3D plugin. My GPU is at the low end of the suggested GPU scale - being a Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT w/512 MB VRam. The clips were created largely as a test to see if I could use the plugin effectively in After Effects CS 4. On the whole it worked very well. I use a MacBook Pro early 2008 with 4GB of memory. A better GPU and more memory would be a plus - but I make do.
