Extruded 3d object matching back and front
on Oct 19, 2012 at 7:05:04 pm

I have a logo that I made 3d and then created a shape from vector layers. I extruded the shape layer. When i rotate it the back of the shape layer is just white. is there anyway to reflect the front of the logo on the back of the extrusion?

Can you make tiff of your final logo, put that in your comp, enanble 3d, and place it so it would reflect off your shape layer? Then you could set the properties of the tiff layer to be "reflection only" so it doesn't show up in the comp, but just reflects off your shape. You could parent it so when you rotate the shape layer, the reflection will move with it.

Did it work?

What I ended up doing was having a second logo that I did not extruded and just moved it back on the z axis so that it sat flush with the back of the extruded shape layer and parented it. This way seemed pretty easy just had to match the position to the extrusion depth.
