CS6 Geometry Options for Solid/Footage Layers allow 3D warps
on Jun 13, 2012 at 9:56:29 pm

There are some very interesting new features for solids when the Ray-traced renderer is selected. Curvature and Segments appear under Geometry.

You can warp and bend layers in 3D space, very cool. Smooth curves require more segments, fewer segments make the layer bend at a sharper angle.

This one has CC Griddler applied, even works with animated footage.

[Allen joaquin] "Wow i din't know this"

Me either, I haven't found it mentioned in any of the new features or on-line demos. Documentation for CS6 hasn't been released yet though the PDF is due in June...

Todd Kopriva has a tutorial for bending 2D layers [link].

Check out his After Effects CS6: New Features Workshop series [link] for a comprehensive video overview of what's new with this release.
