I am looking for tips on creating extruded shapes or 3D looking repetitive shapes similar to the below eample, using After Effects:

any tips or plugins direction would be very appreciated!

For the vertical ones (cylindrical and cubic) make a seamless vertical pattern as base and make the top piece separately.

You should have 2 pieces like in the image:


Apply the RepeTile effect on the base layer and choose the top layer as parent.
For the top layers position property add the following expression:

posY = transform.position[1] - thisComp.layer("BASE").effect("CC RepeTile")("Expand Down");
[value[0], posY]


Move the top layer for positioning and animate the Expand Down property of base layer for height

** keep in mind: continuously rasterizing the layers seems to cause some gaps between repetitions..

Thanks for the reply guys!
Emre Anil - great great tip with that repetile expression - i managed to quickly create it and it'll work great (i tweaked it to the expand up) and it works great.

The downside if that, is that the shape wont be able to be "born" a floor becase the pattern will alyays be there (the lowest/shortest shape is when the expand parameter is at - 0.

Thanks!

I'm glad it worked out for you.. Why don't you just add the bottom as separate layer like the top one?
