About this Course
In this course, we will be learning how to create a 3D UI presentation. This contemporary 3D design style is widely used in professional App/Website promotional videos. We will create a scene where UI elements from the laptop screen are popping out in 3D space. I will go through the process of creating 3D objects in After Effects, Lighting techniques, Object Material properties and Camera animation. I will also talk about the different renderers in After Effects giving additional rendering options in 3D.
What project are we going to develop?
We will use a ready website Dashboard UI design which could be designed by you or can be download for free from the web, and put the elements into layers in Adobe Illustrator/Photoshop for animation. In After Effects, we will model a 3D Laptop dummy and I will show you 2 different ways to do it with the camera and light setup. Then we will import the Dashboard UI design layers in to After Effects and project them on the 3D Laptop screen.
After the scene is set, we will start animating the camera and the UI elements popping out of the laptop screen in 3D.
