3d stroke beginner question
on Apr 23, 2006 at 9:58:15 pm

I just bought this plug in...I am trying to mimic the tutorial on their website but I can't see to get the 3d thickness of the stroke. I made the stroke, clicked on 3d and made the camera but when i use the orbit tool to turn it around, it has no thickness..just flat. what am i doing wrong?

thanks!

3D Stroke should alwyas be applied to a comp-sized 2D solid. Enable the "Comp Camera" option to use the comp camera.

I recomend you check out the tutorials:

Start with the "hands-on" clip.

Am trying this out with combustion.

Have tried with AE also. In AE when the layer is made a 2d one and i rotate the camera, the lines will still stay in '3d'.

But with combustion, i can't define the layer to stay 2d only. And when i rotate the camera, the layer with 3d stroke on it, moves along and the stroke is flat unlike the effect i got from AE.

Is there some settings i'm missing out?

Cheers
