Fake 3D Pie Chart
on Sep 14, 2011 at 4:43:25 pm

I need to make a fake 3d pie chart using only AE.
it needs to be able to go from top view of the pie chart to a 3/4 view, or something of the sort.

I thought of using CC Cylinder but since it's hollow, I don't know how to "close" it.
I tried using a circle but I don't know how to make the circle rotate according to the cc cylinder.

any ideas how to make it work?

While I am sure there are many ways to create a pie chart... In Illustrator or Photoshop (or even Powerpoint) and bring them into AE... I spent a few minutes just using regular AE plugins (not trapcode or BCC, for example).

Attached is a 3D version of a pie chart. This can be animated.
Take a look at the layers and adjust one setting at a time to see the changes.

While this may not be your answer, but it might be able to guide you into a solution that will work for you.
