iPhone 5 Animation in Element 3D – After Effects

     I did some more experimenting with Element 3D for After Effects.  I used a pre-existing iPhone 5 model provided by videocopilot.net.  The main purpose of this project was to use the texture mapping in Element 3D to create a Custom Layer over an object.  In other words, getting actual video to overlay and match the movement of an object layer.  When the iPhone rotates, so does the video layer.  This project was also good for animating a 3D particle emitter and “evolving” the movement of each individual particle.  Plus, I enjoyed this project for creating a 3D room, or replicating a single tile to create a wall or floor.  It’s a great After Effects plug-in, and I highly recommend it!  The footage on the iPhone screen is from the final performance of ‘The Graduate.’  Check out there performance at TheGraduateTube YouTube Channel.
