In this tutorial, Kevin P McAuliffe shows you how, using the great new "Create Shapes from Vector Layers" command in After Effects CS6, you can create 3D extruded client logos in minutes, as opposed to having to wait hours for a 3D application to render it out.

Thanks for posting about this new feature. But one criticism: it's so painful to watch you manually repeating things over and over when you could be copy-pasting. For example when you extrude the layers, you only need to set the extrusion for one, select the I-beams for the extrusion style and depth, then ctr/cmd-c ctrl/cmd-v to the other layers. Instead you spend a good minute tediously twirling and clicking and typing the same thing again and again. It's like watching my mum use the computer.

I understand you might want to explain things in more detail, but you should be explaining how to do things the right way. I had to stop watching because I was grinding my teeth.
