A more in-depth test of elements 3D, using baked animations.
The book has been modeled and animated in Cinema4D, from which I exported multiple sequences with Riptide Pro. Everything is then imported in After Effects, textures made in Photoshop are applied in Elements 3D, lighting, color correction, and rendering follow.
The cover fabric could use more bump, but the fabric became too glossy, so I tried to find a compromise. Everything is a bit aliased as the computer I was working on wasn't powerful enough to use supersampling, only multisampling. I had to use a lot of nesting and precomps in order to render everything.
A very powerful, useful and fast plugin, I can't recommend Elements3D enough !
