I am very curious as to how people make 3D rectangles that they then wrap layer or materials if you will around them in After Effects

Example: http://videohive.net/item/minimal-website-presentation-2/11805673

Possibly like this.

9136_3drectangle.aep.zip

You'll need to load some 1920x1080 footage to replace the missing one.

I didn't spend much time on it, so the edges don't line up that good, but you get the idea.

I can't save back to CS6, so the next best thing is to explain it. Here's a grab of the precomp:



If you look at the top view, I added guides where I wanted the footage to wrap, then duplicated the layer 4 times. I added a mask to each layer to create the top, bottom, left and right edges, moved the anchor points to the edge of the front face and rotated the edge slices 90 degrees on the x or y axis. Finally parented the edge to the front face.

I precomped it for tidiness, but that is not a required step. Remember to turn on collapse transformations if you precomp and want to use the camera in the main comp.

You could also use something like this: http://creativedojo.net/introducing-dojo-extruder-script/ or http://aescripts.com/3d-extruder/ I think? Basically just duplicates the layer and offsets it in z space a bunch of times till you get your desired thickness. Not sure if it'll give you the exact results you want, but it could work.
