3D floating titles

I'm trying to use After Effects that creates a video that looks like this:







I know how to make the 3D titles and I know that I'm probably supposed to use mocha to make it look like the text is staying in the same spot.

Does anyone have any additional suggestions for this project?

I would use Zaxwerks Invigorator Pro for this one (or Shapeshifter when it comes out). You can build the 3D titles in Invigorator, link them to a 3d AE layer and then track the camera move with Camera Tracker (the Foundry). It would be best to match the real camera with the one in AE - angle, format...Once you position the title in 3d space correctly all should work just fine.

Awesome! I think I'm going to use a different camera tracking program called PFHoe. Do you know of any free programs that will help create 3D text for after effects?

You can create 3D text with After Effects itself.

See this article for many ways.
