Adobe After Effects
Create a Rotating Counter ONE: Positioning 3D LayersCreate a Rotating Counter ONE: Positioning 3D Layers

In the first part of this 2 part tutorial, Andrew Devis shows how to create and place layers in 3d space such that they can be rotated as a single group to be used for a rotating counter. Andrew shows how to create and place the layers using both the math function of AE as well as a handy and simple expression that places layers a fixed distance or rotation from the previous layer. He then goes on the show how to create and use a controller for the multiple layers so that they act as a single group.

In the next tutorial, Andrew will show how to animate the rotation of this group of layers as well as how use and adjust an expression that ships with After Effects to have the layers bounce in place as they stop which can give the sense of the counter having some real mechanical properties rather than just a linear of easy-ease keyframe approach.

Andrew Davis
Thanks for the tutorial about this.
My question is that you have layer from O to 9.
I want to create a layer using images instead of number, can I do that?
My other question is after completing my first rotating counter, Can I do copy the original to create 3 rotating counter with same attributes as the original.

Thanks again for this tutorial
Enrico A. Garcia

Hi Enrico
You can add anything you like in place of the nmbers, images would be fine. It's. also fine to duplicate the final comp in a new comp but you will have to click the little. sunshine switch to collapse the transforms.

Hope this helps
