here is what my project looks like. I am using the element plugin to make 3D text. in this screen teh text in red is one seperate layer and the text in white is another layer.
The problem I am having is when i move the red text layer, (the koold layer), parts of the text start to disapear. I do not know how to get it centered and looking like this.
I took a screen recording of the problem. here it is
Also if anymore is really skilled at this, it would be awesome if someone could add on the crown. I have not been able to make a good one in after effects.
I think that the best place to get help with the Video Copilot Element 3D plug-in is on the Video Copilot forum:
I think you simply misunderstand how element does 3D text. It can only use mask paths for extrusions. You will have to use Layer --> Create Masks from Text and reference the resulting layer, not the original text layer.
Maybe I am miss understanding your explanation, but I just wanted to clarify with you that both the text layers are extruded. so both of the layers are extrusions.
Does that change your answer?
My bad. I forgot that they added support for text layers in one of the updates. ;-) Anyway, what system are you on? also, generally your comp seems to interact very slowly... What settings for OpenGL and that do you use?
I am on mac OSX 10.8.1 running AE CS6.
my comp acted really slowly like that in the video when i was doing the screen recording. otherwise the comp runs super fast.
also I do not know what OpenGL is, so i do not know what the settings are.
