It depends on whether you want to animate each and every part manually or not. If you have the option to edit the paths so as to combine shapes that have the same material and move together into one path, in Illustrator, that would be the best solution.

If not, you can use two (or more) instances of Element effect on the same layer, and set all but one to "unified render".

Thank you very much for the response i appreciate it. The main reason i want to get access to all the individual logo elements is that some of the tiny elements has different colours so that i can colour them just as the look of the logo without any changes. i thought i could load all elements and extrude them individually but the custom texts and layer paths can only load about 15 elements of which my logo has more elements about 30. Please help, thank you.

You can use unified render to bring in multiple sets of ten mask paths, two copies of Element for 20 paths, 3 copies for 30 paths, etc. Check out the link.

Hello,
thanks for the support so far. i have tried experimenting the "unified" option but couldnt get what i want maybe i couldn't do that well but i wanna find out if you can help me with a video tutorial on that so i can follow up step-by-step to solve this problem. remember my problem is to get more or additional custom text and mask layer path to extrude the remaining element of my logo , just a recap, thank you.

Hi, no, I don't do video tutorials. But if you can upload a screen shot to show what the problem is, maybe it can be resolved that way.
