I've been trying to think of ways to create a 3D paper look in After Effects, as seen here:

Aside from the paper roll on effect, I've been having trouble getting paper to look 3D and to actually roll on.

Any ideas?

That's going to be a bit tricky in Ae alone. I'd guess most of the heavy lifting there was done in a 3D application.

I've done a few projects with paper effects and leaned pretty heavily on Mettle FreeForm -- though you can get away with a lot more than you'd expect with CC Page Turn if you use multiple instances on the same layer.

hmmmmmm, curious. I hadn't heard of the mettle plugin before. That may be worth exploring. It looks like it may be able to do exactly what I want.

You may have it. FreeForm was bundled with AE CS5 and CS5.5.

It's no longer included with CS6, but it rocks. Very useful and flexible effect.

FreeForm will not only help you roll the layer in 3d space but you can also displace the surface using a displacement map that will help create the crumpled paper look.
Here's a tutorial you may find useful:

Tudor, Walter, thanks for pointing this out :-)

You can find some free project files for FreeForm V2 and FreeForm Pro here: http://www.mettle.com/free-presets-and-project-files/
