Shape from vector layer: preserving or creating gradient
on Nov 30, 2012 at 4:54:55 pm

I'm creating a 3D shape from an .eps logo that contains gradients. From what I can find, AE CS6 doesn't support this. Does anyone have a work around for this or any suggestions?

Use ShapeShifter AE- it preserves the image.

For quick results have a look at the 3D Extruder Script:

Another vote for ShapeShifter AE [link]. (Try the demo if you're sure if your GPU meets the requirements.)

It's vastly more flexible and significantly faster to render than stacking up loads of 2.5D layers for pseudo-extrusion.
