In this tutorial I show a technique to simulate a so called Area Shadow.
These shadows are quite time consuming to render in 3D applications.
Here we have them in real time. But they only work on the ground (this time).
Also, with the same technique, I fake Global Illumination - also just on grounds.
If you once understood the working way, you can then put those shadow also on walls.
Below is a link to the whole After Effect scenes, that you can see in the movie.
http://library.creativecow.net/devis_andrew/Extruding-3D-Text-2 In this second tutorial on extruding 3D text and shapes in After Effects, Andrew Devis demonstrates how to use the shatter effect to create some stylish and fast rendering 3D text and shapes. In addition to this, Andrew also shows how to apply and animate textures to the extruded items as well as how to create shadows from your creation.
Have a sneak peek behind the scenes on how I have created the torn paper effect for the GenArts Reel Intro. The great combination of Cinema 4D and After Effects was used to achieve this effect.
By popular demand and many people constantly asking how this was done, I have decided to record this short video and hopefully help others. Unfortunately I don't have the time to create and record a step-by-step tutorial but I hope this is still helpful and enjoyable for those that are interested in it.
Have fun watching and animating!
As I have received many questions about more specific details and setup info, I have decided to share my original scene file (for learning purposes only)! Please note that I have reduced the texture resolution and saved them as jpg instead of psd. Nick from Greyscalegorilla is kind enough to host the file for me :)
Dans ce tutoriel vidéo sur After Effects, nous allons voir comment reproduire des éléments colorés et lumineux, sans aucun plugins tiers. Nous obtiendrons des jeux de lumières ainsi qu’un rack focus sur de la typographie, le tout seulement avec des calques de formes.
Le résultat est coloré et joyeux, et les possibilités de variantes sont infinies.

This tutorial shows you how to create a uniqu looking intro text animation together with some greenscreen / chromakey footage in adobe after effects. You learn how to key the footage with keyligt (keylight 1.2), how you can colorize it to create the carttoon look, and how you can track the motion (motion tracking) of the footage. This training also shows you some advanced tips, tricks and techniques.
