3D Text objects: disappearing when I try to move them (Element plugin)

Apr 2, 2013 10:45 PM

Screen Shot 2013-04-02 at 8.13.01 PM.png

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.

    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?
