need your help please.
as I have been working in totally different After Effects Compositions thinking it would be better (cleaner work area) not that it is time to put the pieces together I have found that my 3D extruded shape layers are flat and not offering 3D.
This has happened with 3D Text as well. I have tried parenting the imported 3D compositions but that did not accomplish anything.
I hope I have given enough information to help you understand the issue.
as an example I produced a 3D text layer of the letter "D" ......extruded it and made it the main support for a Widescreen monitor. added all the belles and whistles , rotated and it looks great.
However it will not open as 3D nor any extrusion editing features.
any help would be really appreciate.
You have either turned off ray traced rendering or nested your extruded comp in a standard comp and made the layer 3D. Please go through the help files on extruding and bending layers. The only thing wrong is your workflow.
